Machiavellian Politics

First of all, my first post. I start with the Machiavellian ideology. Why is this important? Yes, you may argue that politics has nothing to do with you or your life. But I can tell you, it is still vital and needs adequate attention and follow-ups. Why? Because the policies affect your generation, your career, your life, your children's education etc etc. Although we may not be able to follow our ideals, at least it is not wrong to get to know the current issues. We should be alert about the country's situation so that we can make the best out of it. I am not saying that we should be selfish and reap everything, every harvest by ourselves. Some people based their thinking on that. They don't care if what they do causes dire consequences. The important thing is that "the end justifies the means". This is Machiavellian politics. But some may argue that the end does not necessarily justifies the means. Okay, morality aside. Politics is dirty. Lots of backstabbing. Friends and enemies always change sides. Anyone who disagrees with me that politics ain't dirty? Haha, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Keep reading and you will know why...but behind its so-called "dirty-ness", it is also interesting to follow. why? a very simple answer : it teaches us about human mistakes and experiences.
