It's possible I have a mistaken view. Where I have a problem with Buddhism is when it gets too pessimistic and borders on being anti-life. Sure, a lot of the things mentioned in the first Noble Truth such as birth, aging, dying, feeling pain, loss, etc can result in suffering or make life hellish, but these are not inherently so. It is all in how one reacts to the impressions. The Natural Order simply is
, I don't assign good or evil to it. It doesn't seem like the Buddha did necessarily either, honestly, at least from the one sutra I just consulted for this post. I am certainly not against self-control or self-mastery, but when it results in confining the best and brightest away in monasteries never to reproduce, or to cuck people with the idea of karma, is where I see more harm than good. Too much pessimism results in weirdos like Schopenhauer.
Regarding Nietzsche again though, this is what he said in The Will to Power in passing:
>It's opposite: the weary nihilism that no longer attacks; its most famous form, Buddhism; a passive nihilism, a sign of weakness.
