    Give an example on how any candidate executed one of the ideas (Book from Robert Greene).

    Ill start

    16.) Use absence to increase respect and honor:

    Trump skips fox news debate and raises 6 million for veterans
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/201...kipping-debate-may-have-hurt-him-in-iowa.html

    We could probably complete the whole list if we really looked into it, is it coincidence or is this the playbook of politics?

    Yeah, this is how Trump works. The very criticism of pop psych "power politics" is what he uses to his advantage; endless contradiction of principle. He's also employs NLP and just about every other pop psych movement that has trended in mainstream business libraries over the past three decades. These are his real bibles. Obviously he doesn't read them, so I'm assuming someone else digests and simplifies the ideas, then presents them to him with the kind of short sentences that insiders attest he finds agreeably comprehensible.

    Law 4. Hillary Clinton, the Democrat Nominee for POTUS, hasn't had a press conference in over 200 days...

    I haven't read that book in years but just going off the list, it's striking just how many of them Trump is using regularly.

    So basically he's smart by using his tools in an efficient way. He gets what he needs and doesn't waste his time with the rest. A business man who spends his time wisely, one more reason to vote for him.

    31 - Control the options: Get others to play with the cards you deal

    AKA the 2 party system.

    AKA Trump or Clinton.

    If you vote 3rd party, you are throwing your vote away.

    In other words he has a natural aversion to cerebral development and is a group-thinker.

    I prefer the classics: Sun Tzu's Art of War and Machiavelli's The Prince.

    This is just ripping them off for tards like Chump who can't read big words and long sentences.

    This reads a bit like less serious Machiavelli... Or more serious Ferengi rules of Acquisition.

    Machiavelli is so over rated its unbelievable. 48 Laws of power is far more effective, interesting, covers more ground, has more wisdom. Sun Tzu is pretty legit though.

    It basically just keeps reiterating the same few basic principles in different situations.

    They are quality principles though. Know what is going on. Dont stretch your resources too thin. Make plans.

    It may be cool to trash it these days, but 48 Laws of Power (sounds like an item in WoW) is just recycling the fundamental principles in the Prince.

    Law 13: When asking for help, appeal to people’s self-interest, never to their mercy

    • Do not remind people of past deeds.
    • Find something that will benefit them and emphasize it out of proportion.
    Trump: "I am your voice vote for me!" (self interest?)

    Clinton: "Wouldnt it be nice if i was the first female president?" (mercy?)

    Lending money to your government

    Yeah I think it's more interesting to apply this line of thinking to the system itself. It is incorporated into mass psychology efforts and how the system is constructed.

    Individuals can use them for personal gain, but a lot of it is involved with the creation of illusion and the political world relies heavily on this. They have teams and corporations involved with weaving them.
