Chapter 6: Of Manly Prudence

He is talking about prudence. In an authentic society there is no need for any prudence. One should be simple and open, available to be seen; there should be nothing secretive. The secretive is always ugly.

The superman must be an open book.

“But before the superman comes into existence,” Zarathustra says, “I myself will remain disguised amongst all these disguised people.” Because to stand naked amongst these disguised people is to be crucified; that is the crime of Jesus - is to be poisoned; that is the crime of Socrates.

Zarathustra says, this.

.is my last manly prudence.

.Thus spake Zarathustra.
