Nietzsche Excerpt - Warrior as Free

I finished reading Twilight of the Idols, recently, and felt this excerpt resonated well with the ambitions of Big Boss and Outer Heaven:

"war educates for freedom. For what is freedom? That one has the will to assume responsibility for oneself. That one maintains
the distance which separates us. That one becomes more indifferent to difficulties, hardships, privation, even to life itself.
That one is prepared to sacrifice human beings for one's cause, not excluding oneself. Freedom means that the manly instincts
which delight in war and victory dominate over other instincts, for example, over those of "pleasure." ... The free man is a
warrior." - Twilight of the Idols, by Friedrich Nietzsche
