Niccolo Machiavelli was an iconic Italian philosopher whose seminal work "The Prince" (1532) explored the idea that in considerations of lucrative and efficient social governance, determining the value and profitability of the methods that achieve certain goals will be affected by the demand or desirability of the goals themselves.
In other words, this idea implies that the violence of manmade wars can be justified if the goals of these wars are desirable. For example, the costly World War II (1939-1945) was obviously desirable despite its immense costs.
This method of decision-making analysis seems very pragmatic and many scholars favor its raw simplicity for its quick facilitation of distraction minimization, distraction which can in theory be "frill" or immature.
The clear-cut pragmatism approach found in Machiavelli's "The Prince" (1532) ironically reflects the new age populist marketability of elimination-precision Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Doubt" (2008).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
