  • If you want to understand politics you must read “The Prince” of Niccolo Machiavelli. This book is called by many as the the politician handbook. In countries like Brazil, being called “Machiavelico”, means that you are evil person and if you put that in the context of politics, a lot will make sense. A politician job is not to please the masses and it is to please his own interests, and the city interests, while selling that what he is doing is really important for the masses.
  • Who owns the information can dictate how it will be presented so don’t take for granted what news or a politician is telling you, it might be lies.
  • When things goes really bad, a experience politician will present entertainment for the masses. Think of Nero and old Rome. Whenever things were really bad on the city, the Coliseum had gladiator fights.
