How can a man of knowledge hate his friends?

“The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche.

Sounds confusing, but an explanation below:  For me this quote by Nietzsche is addressing true objectivity.


Think of the “man of knowledge” as a referee in a football game. They love one team and hope that team will win.


But they have to be fair.


They can’t let their “hatred” of the one team or their love of the other influence the truth of a call. In this case they must learn to ‘love their enemy” (the other team) and “hate their friends” as a metaphor for the difficulty in staying in “What is true, regardless of your relationship to either side”.

The controversy surrounding the release of the highly anticipated movie, Half of a Yellow Sun (HOAYS), in Nigerian cinemas is yet to end as the Nigerian movies Censors Board is yet to approve it.
Half of A Yellow Sun did not premier at Nigerian cinemas in April 25 due to the producers inability to obtain public viewing certification from the Censors Board.
The Board has, however, said it has not banned the movie, but is yet to approve it for public viewing in Nigeria.
One of the media handlers of the movie, Bigsam Media, assured that a new cinema date will be announced as soon as regulatory issues are sorted out.
The $10 million movie has made history as the first African movie to get international release dates in the U.K., U.S., Australia, Portugal, Middle East and New Zealand. It is also the first Nigerian movie to be premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada. It is already showing in the U.K.
The HOAYS Movie is an adaptation of Chimamanda Adiches bestselling and award winning novel of same title. It stars OSCAR nominee and BAFTA award winner, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Onyeka Onwenu, Genevieve Nnaji, OC Ukeje, Anika Noni Rose, Joseph Mawle, John Boyega, Wale Ojo, Tina Mba, Zack Orji and Hakeem Kae-Kazim.
It was directed by U.K.-based Nigerian playwright, Biyi Bandele, and was produced by winner of an OSCAR and three BAFTAs, Andrea Calderwood, and Yewande Sadiku, an investment banker.
