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.
