Socrates established that this was one of his principles. H further explained that the bad opinions need no consideration, bt good ones need careful deliberation. H explained that this was the reason for him not escaping to a nearby safe country. H took one-step further and stated that his opinions are better than the rest, snce he regarded himself as a wise man. Te opinions of unwise people are evil and therefore require no attention. Netzsche discovered Socrates as a typical criminal. Netzsche validates this fact by stating that Apology, Scrates, i the presence of judges confronted everyone without any sort of fear or remorse.
