Remember it was I who said: “I say that every Prince ought to wish to be considered kind rather than cruel. Nevertheless, a Prince must be indifferent to the charge of cruelty if he is to keep his subjects loyal and united.” (pg. 59-60).
Forces of amorality go hand in hand with brutality. And, you have media today – something I DIDN’T have! As I always said, “... a Prince should make himself feared in such a way that . . . he escapes hatred; for being feared but not hated go readily together. . . . And if he finds it necessary to take someone’s life, he should do so when there is suitable justification and manifest cause. . . pretexts for taking someone’s life arise more rarely and last a shorter time.” (p. 60-61)
Your media and networking and the brilliant law which says corporations are people make so much more possible today – for who can really attack a corporation for corrupting the land, seeds or food? Not even your government. Justice bows to Economics.
