Laws of Power – 24

Play the perfect courtier: The perfect courtier thrives in a world where everything revolves around power and political dexterity. He has mastered the art of indirection; he flatters, yields to superiors, and asserts power over others in the most oblique and graceful manner. Learn and apply the laws of courtiership and there will be no limit to how far you can rise in the court.

I have thoughts, memories perhaps of the day I was born. These are not vivid, but, faded and not as clear like the many memories I possess. I certainly remember Mother’s milk. It is an interesting exercise to have people in positions of influence and power behave in pseudo-Machiavellian methods that only in the end insult the intelligence. I’ve made a career out of studying human behavior, of technology, of profiling, and I generally do see the train coming before it hits me. I value honesty which just seems to be a rare element in the business. This law is rather like the “Smile and nod.”
