Machiavelli and anarchism

Anarchists are against the forced domination by governments.

Machiavelli is strongly against anarchists. According to him, the role of a prince is to lead a principality - by force if required.

Machiavelli also states that nothing makes a principality stronger than good laws and a good government.
