What always bugged me about Neitzche was that, if he believe the ultimate
aim was selfishness, why did he make it his life's aim to teach other people
how they can maximize their own potential by being selfish? Why didn't he
just teach them to be useless slaves so he could selfishly rule over them?

Isn't that very altruistic of him?
