Thesis- Machiavellis writing has influenced many leaders, and still influences people through his writing to this day.
Hello for those of you who dont know me my name is Bailey Jones. Im just your average guy, and I am here to talk about the influences people can learn from Machiavelli and his book The Prince. One topic I will talk about is it doesnt matter who you are, rich or poor you can still be a leader. One very famous person turned what he learned from The Prince and actually spread it to other people. For those of you who dont know who I am talking about, its a man named Tupac, everyone has heard of Tupac right? If you havent heres some things you should know about him, he is a legendary rapper whose music is still listened to daily, he was an amazing speaker who was very influential to people of all races, he was considered a very down-to-earth guy, also very practical, and some would describe him as methodical, and persistent. He gave a lot of advice to many people, but one thing he would always talk about it being diligent with what you do, and to help yourself before you help other people. Tupac read Machiavellis book The Prince while he was incarcerated, and when he was released he came out with a whole new outlook on things. One thing he was inspired by was Machiavellis philosophy on how to survive in chapter 15 of his book The Prince. He took what he learned and used it to help inspire other people who were struggling in life and helped them to rethink things and improve their lives for the better. Everyone can learn many things from Machiavellis writings, and they could possibly have a major impact on your life, or others lifes that you could possibly inspire through things you have learned.Machavelli was an outstanding writer and still influences people to this day. The thing I like about Machiavelli is that he makes it obvious that anyone can become a leader, no matter who you are or where you are at in your life. Tupac is a perfect example because of the fact he learned these things in jail, somewhere thats is considered the worst place to be, and used things he learned to help so many people through his speeches and through his music that is still very popular to this day.
