Nietzsche was a radical petty-bourgeois thinker: His political views are a decidedly bourgeois version of Stirnerite individualist anarchism.

His most relevant work is actually on linguistics, The Philosophy of Language", on which he deconstructs (consciously or not) linguistic idealism and the pretense of neutrality/objectivity, since all mental models of reality are actually twisted and filtered both by cultural, linguistic and ideological preconceptions, and it's "inevitably so". He was equally dedicated to the dismantling of bourgeois morality, also quite commendable.

He might have been a quite progressive thinker were not for his bourgeois elitism and his thinly veiled contempt for the masses. Some of his insights are actually progressive, but they're buried into heaps of linguistic tricks and elitist bullshit.
