He was also the dictator of Nazi Germany from 1939 to 1945. Machiavelli and Hitler can be compared through their honesty, social beliefs, and justice system. The first statement that we can compare Machiavelli and Hitler with is “Man is easily fooled, be a good liar”. Although Machiavelli doesn’t write specifically that lying is good, he explicated that it is good to be a good liar when needed through his words.
Satan makes an impressive speech with a strong leader image. Here, some readers empathize with Satan and blame God for such cruelty. The important thing here is that Satan does not only influences his fallen angels, but also influences the actual reader to agree with him. Arguably, reader does not get this idea until meeting Satan in person. Reader is forced to question his own morals to decide which side here is actually the righteous one.
Leaders are trusted by their people to uphold high standards of diplomacy and to make citizens’ lives less burdensome. The Soviet Union needed a figure who would help improve and strengthen the country. Joseph Stalin took this role, promising to get the country out of World War I, paying debts, and giving land to the citizens. While he followed through on a few of his promises, he ultimately betrayed his people by lying to them. Through his leadership, Stalin made many decisions to help the Soviet Union, but he made even more choices that harmed individual people due to his abuse of power.

This willpower and drive is what it takes to be an influential person, to grasp the minds and hearts of those who hear his message, and to prompt the citizens of America to follow his lead. Before forming an opinion over the Senator, it is important to know his values and understand exactly what it is he is trying to do for America. Bernie Sanders has labeled himself as a democratic socialist, and while the phrase frightens those of conservative nature, it is often simply a misconception on their behalf. Sanders has spoken to journalists such as Anderson Cooper,
Okonkwo is the protagonist, so it makes sense for him to demonstrate a lot of pride which he undeniably does. Okonkwo is constantly bragging and boastful talking about how many men he or Umuofia has killed and is constantly scared to be perceived as weak. An early example of this is in chapter 7 when Okonkwo kills Ikemefuna. He is advised by his elders not to go and just stay at home. But Okonkwo goes anyway, which leads to him killing Ikemefuna because "He was afraid of being thought weak."
He thought Caesar was becoming too power-hungry, so he joined the conspirators to assist with the assassination solely due to his love for Rome. With Brutus on their side, the killing was more honorable since the purpose was for the betterment of Rome. On his way to the Senate-house, he was met by Artemidorus, who insisted Caesar read his letter immediately provided that it pertained to him. He responded by saying “What touches us ourself shall be last served” (3.1). Without delay, he ignored the letter and called Artemidorus a madman.
I despise him and those who listen to him. I shall fight alone if I choose,” (Achebe 186). The quote exhibits that Okonkwo did not want the British to interfere with tribal matters by introducing a new lifestyle. He preferred that people continued to hold the traditional culture to a high esteem. This is expanded upon when Okonkwo is willing to fight the British by himself with the knowledge that they had more advanced technology, so he could try to preserve his beliefs.
The binding force behind his major endeavors is his yearning to save Theban citizens from the prevailing plague by expulsing the land’s religious population. This is evidenced when he says; “Indeed I’m willing to give all that you may need; I would be very hard should I not pity suppliants like these” (Oedipus the king, lines 10-12). Indeed, this comforting statement can be regarded as the fuel of Oedipus’ subsequent actions within the play. Oedipus goes forward by differentiating himself in the way he wants his people feel satisfied; he prefers Creon’s message from the Delphic oracle to be publicly delivered in the suppliants’ presence. This democratic leadership style ignites Oedipus’ yearning to save his people.
In the novel Golding used Jack’s method of control to represent Machiavelli’s ideas of how people should rule. Machiavelli believes that if you are a politician than it doesn’t matter how nice you are, what citizens need most is effectiveness so then you can create overall stability. One of Machiavelli’s biggest believes was that the most effective way to rule is by using necessary cruelty. This is shown effective by Roger when he tortures Sam in Eric until they agree to join Jack’s tribe (Pages 188-189). Although it is wrong torturing Sam and Eric it was an effective way to gain control because now Jack is able to get inside information about
His sympathy for the islander’s coexisted uneasily with his own sense of loss. “ (83) In the movie he has flashbacks and represses the thoughts of killing his own native inhabitants through sake. Zwick uses this parallel to help viewers understand the hurt that is felt on both sides, but the more technologically advanced, politically advanced, and the government with the most money will win the battle ultimately, and the weak will be defeated or forced into society. In the movie, Saigō reassures Algren,“ His army will come it is the end...I have failed them (his people),” he is telling Algren that his white trained army will come and that he knows 900 years of his ancestry is going to be taken over through the world’s hegemonies and turned into a new
Machiavelli was not looking for princes to become cruel, militant tyrants, but rather wanted effectiveness to unite a kingdom and to unite the people. Through Francesco Sforza, Cesare Borgia, and even Pope Julius II, the author is stating the unspoken truth, supporting it with the figures he derived inspiration, those who used underhanded methods when needed to hold reigns on their power, that "for a man who strives after goodness in all his acts is sure to come to ruin, since there are so many men who are not good. Hence it is necessary that a prince who is interested in his survival learn to be other than good, making use of his capacity or refraining from it according to need" (Machiavelli
