Enjoy this, therefore, whether good or bad, that you yourselves have wanted; and if you should continue in this error that these thoughts of mine are acceptable, I shall not fail to continue the rest of the history according as I promised you in the beginning. He says it's acceptable to do anything to save the free state.
Machiavelli relates the point of Chapter 19 to a moment in modern history; when, in 1498, Florence went to war with Venice and was able to predict the enemy army's movements and win the war. The Discourses, however, take his political theories into new depths, examining the playoffs between populism, voting, citizenship, warfare and the conduct of state officials, to name a few.

L'échec de la secte chrétienne lui saute aux yeux, alors que c'est en Italie où elle est la plus puissante qu'elle est la moins respectée, et qu'au moment même où il compose son ouvrage, Luther s'active en Allemagne à la renverser.

Reading this book took up my mindspace so much that I was hooked on accomplishing the reading and nothing else. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. But flux naturally gives rise to situations that threaten the integrity of republics, such as dissension, conspiracy, war, religious change, cultural change, natural disasters and the like, which inevitably lead to degeneration.
Chapter 28 says how dangerous it is for a Republic or a Prince not to avenge an injury done against the public or against a private person. If you love history, this is something you will definitely like, for the others, it becomes a bit difficult to sustain the liking. C'est une répugnance compréhensible que nous inspire un tel caractère, mais il ne faudrait pas pour autant négliger les avis de celui que Montesquieu appelait justement le très pénétrant Machiavel.

Whence I, so as not to incur this error, have selected, not those who are Princes, but those who by their infinite good qualities would merit to be such; and not to those who could load me with rank, honors, and riches, but to those who although unable to would want to do so. We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. He sees such conflict, or at least some conflict, along with its underlying dynamic of tensions, as necessary for the smooth, organic operation of a republic, since it reflects inevitable human nature.
So by the contrary I affirm that the proceeding of Manlius is harmful in a prince and useful in a citizen, and especially to the fatherland. Please mind upper and lower case!
