Here it is...!

Well, I read on another forum about the 48 rules to achieving power, and some of them, while obvious, were repulsive. Although they all make perfect sense, it quite acuetely explains why I live just below the ceiling rather than above it. As far as I am concerned, fuck 'em, they can keep it if that is what I have to do to get higher up the food chain. I think I'll wait for the lottery instead.

Ancona, your link does not work. And it is not complete enough to cut and paste it.

Didn't you know? That is rule #1 in how to achieve power. Don't let others know how to achieve power.

I copied the link into a search engine to find the correct link.

A good link to it is currently at the top of this page:

I found this one funny..

Quote :
Law 27

Play on People’s Need to Believe to Create a Cultlike Following

People have an overwhelming desire to believe in something. Become the focal point of such desire by offering them a cause, a new faith to follow. Keep your words vague but full of promise; emphasize enthusiasm over rationality and clear thinking. Give your new disciples rituals to perform, ask them to make sacrifices on your behalf. In the absence of organized religion and grand causes, your new belief system will bring you untold power.
To a great extent, I think this is how every asset bubble is formed. This is why we will EVENTUALLY have a bubble in gold. I hope everyone here is smart enough to see that it is a bubble when that time comes.

Wrong title. It's how to gain limited and meaningless power for a Machiavellian prick.
Those aren't the universal rules at all - just the ones for liars and thieves. Yes, if you have to be like that, you can keep it.

Power can accrue quite naturally to the good, just by being good and competent in wielding it - People quickly recognize the benefit of a structure where the better decision makers are followed, vs anarchy or the poorer ones.

Looks like someone read Sun Tzu and Niccolò Machiavelli, mish mashed their work and tried to pass it off as something original.

He's definitely trying to sound smart and breaking his own rules in the process.

Sorry about the bum link folks, I am operating at about 40$ right now because of this bug in my system. Thanks to those who corrected the link for me. ; - )

DC, c'mon bro! You should know by now that unless I put a footnote or something, the title is very nearly always an indicator of the level of total sarcasm intended upon reading the body text! When I read this I was dumbfounded, since they could have been written by the Devil himself.
