Machiavelli Democrac

Machiavellian Democracy POLS 2300 Midterm Review UofU

When? Rennaissance, led to the revival of the Polity
Role of the Leader? Secular, politics should be a pragmatic science
Human Nature? All men are inherently evil, that's why the must be constrained by the rule of law
When can Princes Rule? When they are brought up constrained by the rule of law, but even then a people grown to a similar constraint will be more virtuous than a prince who is more subject to whims and extravagences.
Thesis Defects in character are no more natural to the public than to Princes, in fact, the people raised with a similar sense of law are often capable of having more virtue than princes.
