Format: Taschenbuch
Taking his work at its merit, Machiavelli did not write something new, and those who pondered about Jonathan Swift would find almost a complete picture of Machiavelli's ruler in Gulliver's travels. But, it was Machiavelli who abstained to mix politics with ethics and had no qualms in defending wrongdoings. Accordingly he was bedeviled.

By careful reading of the Prince, one may modify the own conclusion. It is true, that Machiavelli''s ruler would not retreat from committing a crime to maintain power, but the author repeatedly stressed, that doing so in order to prevent a greater evil should be seen as a common interest of the whole society. He irritated that the ruler must avoid to be hated and despised by his subjects and that he must aim to acquire his strength from his own people--the methods in achieving this goal are irrelevant. To draw some parallels between Machiavelli and Plato, both pointed out that the ruler must seek virtue in his dealings. However, Plato wrote in the Republic that no honest man would go into politics, and Machiavelli, though implicitly, endorsed that and referred that involvement in Politics and Power would demand vice deeds.

Machiavelli's pessimistic views concerning the human nature played a central role in formulating his thoughts. On the question, what is better for the ruler to be loved or to be feared, Machiavelli straightly chose the latter, because he believed that men were neither mature enough to love, nor able to be faithful, and only fear of punishment would hold them together--Hobb later believed that self-preservation was the driving power which stood behind all human actions.

THIS IS A TOUGH ONE 10. Juli 2004
Von Steven Travers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Machiavellism is a name often given to politicians who have no ideals other that to get what they want, which is to achieve power. Fair enough, and I cannot argue that point. But at the same time, there are aspects of Machiavellianism, which actually is now called realpolitic more than Machiavelli, that are essential in modern politics, especially campaigning and warfare, or more appropriately, the politics of pre-war.
The crux of the author's advice to the The Prince is that it is better to be feared or respected than loved, which certainly parallels America's post-9/11 place in the world. There are times in which it is appropriate and better to be loved, but obviously this is a calculated act. It reminds me of how the Clintons did polling to determine what would be the most popular place to vacation for them with the public, or how after Moncia they "allowed" cameras to "capture" them, "cuddling" in bathing suits, or how Clinton walked into Ron Brown's funeral telling a big you-know-what-eating joke until he saw cameras, then wiped a fake tear from his eye. Pure Machiavellianism.

Great book 19. Juli 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
People so twisted, disturbed and lonely as to use a book review as yet another excuse to lash out at a man who left office four years ago, even though the book has nothing to do with that man, may not be Machiavellian ... but they sure are pathetic. One wonders how their life got to be this empty.
