I am enjoying my time in Europe. Did not know if it would happen due to a very strange illness just before leaving. But it did. We are in Florence and are headed now to Rome. My students are in for a treat as I have much to offer them from my visit. My school is picking up most of this, however, the wine and expensive taste in great foods will come out of my pocket. I will blog more on this trip when I have the time. I am here at the Uffizi beside Machiavelli — the master or prince of state craft.
“The Prince has the general theme of accepting the aims of princes; such as glory, and indeed survival, can justify the use of immoral means to achieve those ends.” As noted in Machiavelli’s The Prince.
