The Prince A Book for All And None
Machiavelli , father of political science , observes as a historian , thinks and demonstrates as a philosopher , and writes as a politician , for him " there is no sin but ignorance "
He has defined the principles of political power , but in essence he wasnt telling The Prince anything he doesn't already know , if we took this point into account and asked , for whom he was writing ??
from my point of view ( as I used to see beauty and good in everything ) Machiavelli pretended to instruct The Prince but indeed he taught the people a magnificent political lessons , he wrote about the world as it is , not as it ought to be , he wrote about politicians as they do and uncovered them to the " ignorant " people , as " there is no sin but ignorance "
whether my opinion was true or not , I see this book as a masterpiece , based on scientific observation , true whether we like it or not , exactly as The Origin of Species , we live according to its principles yet we still deny .
