Moving on to Machiavelli
Quick general intro before we dive into notes and discussion.

He glorified instrumentality in statebuilding—an approach embodied by the saying that “the ends justify the means.” Violence may be necessary for the successful stabilization of power and introduction of new legal institutions. Force may be used to eliminate political rivals, to coerce resistant populations, and to purge the community of other men strong enough of character to rule, who will inevitably attempt to replace the ruler.

What do you think; the end justify the means means?
Do you agree? Disagree? When does common sense come into play?


If you want to reach enlightenment and take that narrow path… you can follow the Eightfold Path.
