eBook: The Prince

************************************************

Here is one of my favorite old out-of-date books that still make a lot of sense if the situation arises.  I read Prince a long time ago but think a whole chapter revolves around "why kingdom of Darius did not rebel when he died?"  If not a chapter, it is definitely included in a whole chapter.  I remember this because the uprising in Iran is getting much attention.  Last time an uprising was possible was when Ayatollah Khomeini died.  If people cannot remember it, the Tianamin Square uprising happened exactly at the same time.  It is no secret that communists despise anyone with a religious agenda.  Any Arab country allied with Russia has suffered loss after loss.  Chinese are known for both their jealousy and hatred toward Persians as they rose as an Asian power.  I have been told nobody would go out of its away as much as the Chinese to topple the government in Tehran as long as it becomes a non-religious government.  I have even heard the Chinese had the Tianamin Square uprising scheduled with Khomeini's death and the whole uprising was choreographed to resemble many similarities to the Iranian Revolution events.  Once Khomeini died, the television in Persia also covered the very significant events in Tianamin Square reminding many of the days of the revolution.  So why did neither the kingdom of Darius nor Khomeini rose up when they died? Machiaveli said the Persian citizens did not know who Darius was?  The hierarchy was very steep and the citizens of Persia only had contact with their overseers and the higher echelons of the government might as well had not existed for them and anything could happen there without reaction from them.  Why did the kingdom of Khomeini not rise after his death? That makes a great subject for a book.  I am sure he was popular for 10 million attended his funeral and Khomeini was in Greek sense a philosopher king.  His religious training qualified him as a rhetor and a rhetor by ancient definition is a person who is an encyclopedia and has great knowledge of all fields blah blah.  In short, he could relate to many diverse populations.  The Prince is a great book to read and so is Prophecies by Nostredamous.  I cannot find a good copy of Prophecies.  Any copy I have seen recently is a translation by nature but also extremely censored!  What happened to the stuff I read in older copies?

Autor: Niccolo Machiavelli, "The Prince."
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA | ISBN: 019280426X | 2005 edition | PDF | 186 Pages | 1.43 MB

When Machiavelli's brief treatise on Renaissance statecraft and princely power was posthumously published in 1532, it generated a debate that has raged unabated until the present day. Based upon Machiavelli's first-hand experience as an emissary of the Florentine Republic to the courts of Europe, The Prince analyses the usually violent means by which men seize, retain, and lose political power. Machiavelli added a dimension of incisive realism to one of the major philosophical and political issues of his time, especially the relationship between public deeds and private morality.
