What connections do you make between "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" and society today?

I can see quite a resemblance, very few who follow the master morality, and billions who follow the slave mentality.
The slaves always anathematize the masters, just as in the book. It's quite remarkable actually, that after all this time, nothing has changed.

Genealogy of Morals(GoM), when read in conjunction with Thus spake Zarathustra(TSZ) has a far greater relevance. For with all that is said in the volumes of TSZ regarding the ethics of society and the slave/master dichotomy, expression of the formulation of such structures is a great footnote text - GoM.
