Mutahi Ngunyi is a sadist! as a proponent of the archaic Machiavellian thinking! Mutahi Ngunyi you owe the people of Kenya in diversity an apology for cynnism, irrelevance and war mongering disguising as a scholar.
In our modern times and to be precise in our contemporary society you are more of a divisive radical element by sounding a war cry in your skewed and hollow philosophy and analysis in matter politik.
Any neo-scholar who espouses this proposition must be living in the past and is a cheer leader in the infamous ancient glandiators contest where the two competitors wrestling in the arena would bleed themselves to death in the ring as the crowd cheer them devouring each other,it was survival for the fittest and only the strong and most cunning would survive and come out of the ring alive.
Niccolo Machiaveli was an ancient italian Statesman, a diplomat, a historian,a politician,a philosopher and a humanist. He is the auther of the book “The Prince” which was a master piece advice to the prince of the time city of Florence on how to retain power at all cost either by iron or by poison.
The world today from Southern hemisphere to the Nothern hemisphere is gravitating more towards diplomacy in tackling disputes for sustainable Peace, and this is cascading all the way to the deepest conservative Africa villages.
The first and the second world war was fuelled by the school of thought more the same to Mutahi Ngunyi 5th estate and the Forthall School Kind of Thinking! Kenya has a mosaic composition in it cultural existence with its internal political dynamics and some of this “scholars” ought to appreciate this fact!
Ever asked yourself what would happen to our Society if most of us embrace Machiavelism today? It would just be a play or a replica of the Schorching Earth theory, that if i dont get it then we are all perishing. Its my way or the high way kind of thinking.The leadership in the 21st Century is more progressive ,civilised and more inclined to building bridges than conquering others and expansionist tendencies.
Mutahi Ngunyi is leaving in the past and should be careful not to trigger internal strife in a political struggle in our Country. To crusade for machiavelism publicly is tantamount to backwardness and inciting tribal war.
The Communities in Kenya should not invest in conquering each other but more in complementing each other in the diversity.Each Community is a micro-cosm component that make the whole Kenyan State.
From the League of Nations to United Nations through the Father of Diplomacy and Former United States President Woodrow Wilson, the world has not experienced major wars. Diplomacy in International Relations has prevailed over war option. (King of Heart and Soul)
