When it comes to Politics, war and love, Machiavelli asserts it is a bond which men, being scoundrels, may break whenever it serves their advantage to do so; but fear is supported by the dread of pain, which is ever present. that a number of traits are inherent in human nature. People are generally self-interested, although their affection for others can be won and lost. They are content and happy so long they are not victims of something terrible. They may be trustworthy in prosperous times, but they will quickly turn selfish, deceitful, and profit-driven in times of adversity, and as such, goodwill is never absolute. His profound understanding of the mind and heart of man, stripped of altruism is stark and honest - his statements about society and human nature that few have matched since. Now, Dark Moon Press brings you this classic rulebook that is as instrumental today as when it was first penned
