Therefore the love is quite necessary to a leader to built into his citizens. In conclusion even the book has still been disputed anyhow without judge it right or wrong, let's just regard it as a previous fortune to the past, to now, to the future that Machiavelli bestows us. He tells us the necessary to the cruel that I introduced. A lot of theory that he created has been influencing politicians generation by generation and became a universal political work after the trial of time.
Being an intellectual, Mao knew China lacked an urban proletariat but still recognised the effectiveness of Marxist policies, leading to the development that the peasantry would be the ‘natural harbingers’ of revolution.

The development of Maoism was a result of a long and thoughtful process, which evolved from traditional Marxism. Despite being a great supporter of Marxist theory, Mao’s own political views were heterogeneous and not strictly Marxist. The main components of Maoism, including peasant revolt and following the mass line, guerrilla tactics and army organisation, political reforms and economic and social reforms, were perhaps the solution to China’s complications explaining the popularity of the Communist regime within provincial areas.
Though his ideas were certainly radical at the time, society now can see parallels between modern governments and Machiavelli’s “ideal.” Government officials, especially the American ones, can be compared to the “prince” in Machiavelli’s work as presenting a desirable front to society, yet once they are behind the confines of their castle, or White House, they are free to exploit and abuse their powers as they think necessary, either for personal or national gain. It could be said, by any educated individual, that reading The Prince has become a prerequisite to holding office. Machiavelli, slightly ahead of his times, describes a ruler who presents an appearance of greatness, composed of every awesome quality that would be desired in a ruler, yet where those of society can not see him he is to be evil, malicious, manipulative and dissembling. Though lacking moral integrity--as most politicians do--this proposed ruler has proven successful and Machiavelli’s “ideal” is as he wanted it--real.
Although Band of Brothers is similar to many other non-fiction war novels, what makes this novel standout is the authors ability to prove to the reader that the Revolutionary war wasn’t just about lining up and killing as many people as possible, but rather the strategic approach that was needed for the Americans to even stand a chance against the powerhouse British army. What the braves soldiers went through in a time where they didn’t even have shoes to cover their feet was astonishing. Kelley’s main focus is to prove to the audience that the Revolutionary War was a demoralizing event in history. Kelly does a wonderful job capturing this by displaying in graphic detail, which in some instances, was hard to fathom. Kelly provides the reader with detailed mapping throughout the book providing the reader a better opportunity to visualize the battles as the occurred.

One of the most important tools that any government can take advantage of to advance its control is the patriotism of its people. Throughout the history of the world patriotism has been used to justify war, injustice against others and to manipulate a whole population of people. Patriotism is not a word which is meant to have negative effects. As the Merriam Webster online dictionary defines it, patriotism is the "love for or devotion to one's country". The problem is that many corrupt governments throughout the world, including ours here in the United States, are using patriotism to advance their own interests which have negative effects on the world as a whole.

Without these in place, a prisoner declared an “enemy combatant” was subject to torture at any time. Opponents of torture had a very one-sided opinion on the matter. They believe that foreign relations would become complicated. For example, the opponents of torture stated "establishing new, stable government proved enormously difficult"(“Torture Report”). Although the United States had achieved the goals of overthrowing opposing regimes, establishing a government proved difficult as a result.
