Outline for The Prince I The basics - all dominions are acquired through either fortune hereditary or exploitable circumstances or ability virt - strength courage skill desperate measures not a reference to moral virtue II Hereditary rulers have an easier time keeping power and regaining it because they have less cause and less need to offend than a new one Unless a hereditary ruler does something truly despicable the people will of him and fight to keep him in power If a stronger force strips him of the title he will have an easier time regaining it because of the necessary cruelties of his overthrowers force on the people make them more affectionate for him III Mixed principalities occur when the people overthrow their ruler to join an established neighboring regime in an attempt to improve their lives This never improves them The occupying force always injures the new principality thereby costing their goodwill yet force cannot be used against them because the new ruler is obligated to them Therefore they can neither be satisfied nor forced Conquering the second time allows the ruler to use force by using the rebellion as an excuse - this makes the lands easier to keep If customs are the same between the current and soon to be conquered holdings all one must do is extinguish the ruling family and alter neither the laws nor the taxes If language customs and laws are different then the prince must make one of three ruling choices He can either A live there - a rulers presence makes it easier to learn of and squash rebellions installs either love or fear and keeps potential attackers away for fear of battle and swift retribution B colonize - this only offends those who are dispossessed to house your troops and they will have no recourse C use a large force of troops - this method is both expensive and annoying
