I
find it informative and interesting that the writer shows the nature of guilt
and obedience in the work. It shows that the
author does not need us to develop guilt. “However, if we consider the
millennia before the history of humanity, without a second thought we can
conclude that the very development of a feeling of guilt was most powerfully
hindered by punishment, at least concerning the victims onto whom this force of
punishment was vented” (GM, p.41). It is quite common to develop guilt
when one errs; however, it makes our life unbearable to live (Schacht, 2008). The best thing that I find in the book
is the portion where the author advises
us to live beyond that which is good and evil thus preserving us from suffering
from guilt.

Furthermore,
the writer demonstrates that obedience is paramount and proves one’s intelligence over any issue. It helps us
to overcome suffering by being mindless of our any argument (Schacht, 2008). The interesting thing about obedience is
earned without much struggle and can result in
good future. The author writes, “And powerlessness which does not retaliate is being falsified into ‘goodness,’ anxious
baseness into ‘humility,’ submission before that
one hates to ‘obedience'” (GM, p.27).

The
author gave an illustration of the creditor and the individual in debt. He
describes that the creditor can make good out of the guilt of the debtor by
making use of the developed guilt in satisfying their pleasure (Schacht, 2008). This analogy reminds me of the time we
were receiving punishment at our young age. The punishment was harsh but was
also cheerful since it ends at that moment but guilt cannot. Additionally, the
virtue of obedience made us respectful all through and now enabled us to earn respect in return.
