This paper examines two important aspects of Machiavelli's "The Prince": The characteristics of the Prince and the kind of society he will rule and the permissiveness of tyranny in making society secure from foreign invasion and rule. The author points out that Machiavelli's "The Prince" illustrates how tyranny can be functional, instead of detrimental, to ensure peace and stability within society, especially in the context of 16th century Western governance. The paper relates that "The Prince" has become a useful historical document that mirrors the life and times of 16th century Italian politics and society, and humanity's eternal pursuit for an effective leader and stable society.
