Voilà quelques extraits en texte à partir de The Prince :
Therefore, one who becomes prince with the
support of the common people must keep them well disposed. This is easy for
him, since the only thing they ask of him is not to be oppressed. But one who
becomes prince with the help of the nobility against the will of the common
people must, before all else, seek to win the people’s support, which should be
easy if he takes them under his protection. Because men who are well treated by
those from whom they expected harm are more obliged to their benefactor, the
common people quickly become better disposed toward him than if he had become
prince with their support.
We have said above that a prince must have laid firm foundations;
otherwise he will necessarily come to ruin. And the principal foundations of
all states, the new as well as the old or the mixed, are good laws and good
armies. Since good laws cannot exist where there are no good armies, and where
good armies exist there must be good laws, I shall leave aside the arguments
about laws and shall discuss the armed forces.
Francesco Sforza became Duke of Milan from being a private
citizen because he was armed. Since his sons* avoided the hardships of military service, they became private citizens
after having been dukes. Among the other bad effects it brings with it, being
unarmed makes you contemptible. This is one of those infamies a prince should
be on guard against, as will be discussed below.
