ethical questioning

My cumulative question in reading MacIntyre’s last four chapters has to do with the relationship(s) among Nietzsche’s emphasis on health and sickness (224) and MacIntrye’s use of “fatal” (201) and “grave” (202) while discussing Hegel. It’s unclear to me if he is paraphrasing using Hegel’s terms or his own. It seems there is a judgment operating that if persons don’t find/discover/invent/create/whatever (!) an ethics then they “die” – but since we all die anyway I’m not sure of the conceptual function of these dire terms.
