Please read THE MORALS OF A PRINCE by Niccolo Machiavelli. Â Machiavelli is famous for his writings on the nature of power and politics, specifically on the actions and behavior of those desiring power and wanting to hold it. Â Today, if a person is said to be Machiavellian, it implies that they are being manipulative to gain and/or hold power.Â
However, others argue that Machiavelli was merely describing the nature of people and their leaders while creating a blueprint for politicians to rule successfully.Â
One of his most famous quotes was, â€œHe who wishes to deceive will never fail in finding willing dupesâ€ (46).
Please write at least 12 paragraphs giving examples from current politics showing how Machiavelli’s ideas and thoughts are still relevant today.
