Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince, is a gift to Lorenzo de Medici, the future prince at the time. Machiavelli spent a very long time compiling information about the decisions rulers have made in the past to determine the best way to rule a kingdom. He took many examples from leaders like King Ferdinand, King Charles VIII, and Emperor Maximilian II. He used these examples to determine how a prince should act and what qualities they should have. According to Machiavelli's The Prince, the qualities a prince should possess are deception, military knowledge, and wisdom.
The Nazis believed that Jews were a nuisance to them. In the book Night, they describe events that happened to one individual, Eliezer Wiesel.

The Holocaust is still a heavily reviewed subject and is debatably one of the worst if not the worst atrocity that has happened on this Planet up to date. To think that the Nazi’s were able to kill millions of people it has made us question what kind of people they were and if they were anything similar to us. It is hard to think of a perpetrator to be a normal human being. The Holocaust has made us question if the Nazi’s had any sense of moral sensibility when killing innocent and defenseless Jewish men and women.

Machiavelli influences the modern political science we still use today, and continue to pathe his paths. His book, The Prince uses Renaissance values and applies them to politics, intriguing most everyone. His book targets powerful men, teaching them how to gain and maintain power. “It is not al all necessary for a prince to have all the good qualities which I have named, but it is necessary to seem to have them” (Machiavelli). Although Machiavelli gained his power, not every man can, so Machiavelli is saying that in order to become an idol, you just have to project the idea of power.
The Prince The essay The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli, is considered the basis for modern politics and is still very relevant today. He provides means of how how prince should govern and come to power. Machiavelli’s theory is that there is no “good” or “bad” in politics, that the only thing that matters is the stability of the state. A Pulitzer Prize winner, Jared Diamond says Machiavelli is “ a crystal-clear realist who understands the limits and uses of power.” Diamond says that The Prince is still very relevant today because Machiavelli insists “that we are not helpless at the hands of bad luck.” Machiavelli starts The Prince out by giving descriptions on which types of kingdoms are easier to rule. Kingdoms that are hereditary, they are easy to rule but difficult to take and a kingdom that is easy to take is difficult to rule.
