    One thought on “The Prince”

    1. That single statement boys and girls is the crux at the heart of the matter resting at the bottom line of Niccolo Machiavelli s world changing classic on the defining use of realpolitik in governance and foreign policy Despite popular perception, Machiavelli, whose name has often been used as a synonym for political ASSHATery, was not arguing that it s better to be immoral, cruel and evil than to be moral, just and good Rather, Machiavelli was demonstrating, through reasoned analysis based on nu [...]

    2. I m weirdly pleased that The Prince lives up to its reputation it is indeed Machiavellian Here s his advice on conquering self governing states i.e democracies The only way to hold on to such a state is to reduce it to rubble Well then.I d like to say that any guy whose last name becomes a synonym for evil is a badass, but Machiavelli wasn t he was a failed minor diplomat who wrote this in a failed attempt to get reemployed Stupid attempt, too anyone who hired him would be advertising that he es [...]

    3. This is no Little Prince, that s for sure You must kill the fox, burn the rose, murder the businessman, if any of them tries to take control over your princedom There is no time to be nice There is only time to seem to be nice At the end of the day, it is better to be feared than loved, if you can t be both But, keep in mind chapter 23.The Prince was written in the 16th century, and some of its ideas are too contemporary It is a major treatise that influenced political leaders, through history M [...]

    5. I don t know how come I never reviewed this one but recently I was visiting this friend of mine in south India, Pramod yes, the one from , when he showed me this not so popular smaller piece, allegedly written by the author in his last days, Le Gente and never published for common people about how they can succeed in social life using diplomacy There were only twenty copies of same written in 19th century, of which Pramod s was one Since he is a sort of book worshipper, he won t let me touch it [...]

    6. In this book, Machiavelli makes his purpose clear how to get power and keep it No happiness No warm and fuzzy pats on the back Definitely no hugs No words of encouragement Definitely nothing about being nice Being nice, in politics, in war, in struggles for power, often ends with one person winning and the other person being in prison, disgraced, exiled, or dead That was the context in which Machiavelli wrote this book Italy at the time was a collection of warring states, not united One power wo [...]

    9. A young colleague of mine recently said management is easy I smiled enigmatically and considered buying him a copy of The Prince but I fear it would be wasted I am now on my third copy of this book which, alas, I can only read in English The George Bull translation as reprinted in 1995 is the version I currently refer to.I first read this book when studying economic history at high school in the second half of the last century I was intrigued by Machiavelli s advice even though I had little unde [...]

    11. This book is the perfect representation between the best and the worst of House Slytherin in the Harry Potter verse, and that is how I presented it to my class I got an A on the paper, so it does make sense Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are Yes Machiavelli, at least you make some logical sense Here is my reasoning about Slytherin and The Prince Slytherin House, which is known for cunningness, astuteness, ambition, thirst for power, self preservation, but als [...]

    12. I didn t know exactly what to expect, when starting this classic treatise As it turns out, the book is very accessible Machiavelli turns out to have a very pragmatic, and practical approach to governing One of the most important recommendations he has, is that a governing prince should keep his subjects happy At least, don t do too many things to make them unhappy If a governor finds himself with a population that is unhappy with him, then it is very vulnerable to attacks from the outside.What a [...]
