“the reason there will be no change is because the people who stand to lose from change have all the power. And the people who stand to gain from change have none of the power.”

                                                              Niccolò Machiavelli

 

 

 

 

The above quote was blogged by Roseylinn.wordpress.com on April 28, 2o16.—one of Roseylinn’s frequent pithy quotes.

Niccolò Machiavelli Italian: [nikkoˈlɔ makjaˈvɛlli]; (3 May 1469 – 21 June 1527)was an Italian Renaissance historian, politician, diplomat, philosopher, humanist, and writer.[1] [2] He has often been called the founder of modern political science.

Machiavelli is not always right— witness some recent national elections.
