Niccolo Machiavelli

It has been years since I’ve read The Prince by Machiavelli. I know some people see i as one of the most influential books in their life, a source of inspiration and a guide for the rest of their life. And I partially have to agree with them. Partially, because while reading the book it became clear to me that it’s all what I don’t want to be or become in life…

Over the last month it sometimes resonated in the back of my head. Maybe that’s what the new American potus aspires to be? A Machiavellian leader..?

Or perhaps he does adhere more to the egoism described by Ayn Rand? Well, I doubt that he ever read a book by one of these writers. But it is triking how much of his style resonates with these works…

Just a quick thought…
