"Machiavellian" is usually pejorative, a term laced with disdain and subtle contempt. However, to actually read Machiavelli is to study applied Realism in the context of meeting goals. As a community, we (Dojo) have certain goals; how can we reach them effectively? How can we best position ourselves in the toolkit/library ecosystem in order to reach our goals? How can we survive in a world more and more infatuated with tiny individual libraries, when the perception is that Dojo is heavy? Machiavelli provides us with keen insights into human nature—insights that still serve us well nearly 500 years later.
