In his classic 16th-century treatise that justifies and praises manipulation and occasional brutality as the best tools for those who want to hold power, The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli wrote, “It is much safer to be feared than loved.” About five centuries later, Robert Greene wrote his book, The 48 Laws of Power, re-enforcing the Machiavellian interpretation of power and the means for achieving power. In his book, Robert Greene argues, “The need for power is so fundamental, so essentially human, that when you feel you have no power over people or events, you are likely to be depressed.” Greene further describes the laws of power that will show readers how to gain power and influence.
Both Machiavelli and Greene want us to believe that achieving and keeping power require coercion, dishonesty and manipulation.
