Machiavelli.The Prince. 1/5
1 "If he must harm a colony: harm the poor and dispersed."
2 "If he aquires a state he should absorb the surrounding and identify the enemies.
3 "Injuries should be performed all at once: so resentment does not develop, favors should be bestowed little by little."
4 "Whoever desires to found a state and gives it laws, must start with assuming that all men are bad and ever ready to display their vicious nature, whenever they may find occasion for it."
5 "A prince should have no objective but war."
6 " A prince who is not wise himself cannot take wise advice."
7 "Men will succeed as long as method and fortune are in harmony."

Machiavelli and Power
This has been US policy for a long time and still is,
and has been the policies fostered,
upon third world nations where despots are
kept in place, as a reward for good service
until the masses do what folks did in what is now called Egypt,
by massive strikes major industry, and venues of international financial importance
and boycotting of businesses
Two-thirds of the reductions that Mr. Obama will claim are from cuts in spending, including in many domestic programs that he supports. Among the reductions for just the next fiscal year, 2012, which starts Oct. 1, are more than $1 billion from airport grants and nearly $1 billion from grants to states for water treatment plants and similar projects. Public health and forestry programs would also be cut.
Home energy assistance to low-income families and community service block grants would be cut in half, and an initiative to restore the Great Lakes’ environmental health would be reduced by one-quarter.
Obama Budget Said to Trim Deficit by $1.1 Trillion
President Obama, who is proposing his third annual budget on Monday, will say that it can reduce projected deficits by $1.1 trillion over the next decade, according to a senior official.
1 To handle a colony harm the poor and dispersed.
well it would not be a conspiracy theory at all to assume that the corporate state of the US, is a colony, and a combined colony of the Rothschilds, the "City" in London, the House of Saud and the People's Repubic of China.
Who are the poor?
Poverty has increased since the 3 trillion dollar bailouts in 2009, and many in the business class and middle class have fallen into povery havingno bailout or safety net.
A moratorium on foreclosures could have saved many, and a singl;e payer health care system, that would have gotten rid of the HMO extortion middle men would have reduced health costs in medicare and medicaid by half, requiring no A B o rC plans but making all universialy viable and efficient for the patient, with practicly zero copoy on service or meds.
The steady roll of job outsourcing, the failure to curtail GATT and NAFTA, that takes jobs out of the hands of the Black families, and sends them to nations where folks are forced to work in almost slave like conditions while stocks go up, CEOs get increased salaries by mega millions and mega billions in bonuses are handed out at the end of the year, is a part of "Prince Strategy"
The failure to continue regulation of financial instituions or at least return some modicum of Glas Steagal to make hedge funds , subprimes, and derivitives;
once again illegal, adds to massive emoverishment and puts salt on the wounds caused by the financial crisis of 2008.
Who are the dispersed?
Look at what the sisters and brothers from the 9th ward are facing when they have returned after Kattrina.
They see even their non mortgage defaulted homes that were not damaged, not harmed and not, certified as condemned, demolished to build condominiums and high rises for ventrification
what other colony and what other disperesed?
well after the hijacking of Jean bertrand Aristede,
Haiti has, become in all concideration a colony of the US, and as the promised funds for aid have not ebeen recieived and the sisters and bothers there are degraded iinto greater levels of desperation a year later,
corporations get fat while Haitians go hungry, by getting contracts to rebuild in key areas, not related to the general welfare fo the masses,
and of course there is the dispersion factor, as those who fled Haiti seeking asylum in the USA,
from the former head of state and his deaths quads, are now rounded up by the thousands and sent back to Haiti
President Obama has unveiled a budget plan seeking to trim the federal deficit by cutting or eliminating some 200 federal programs, many dedicated to social services and education,
while increasing military spending and funding for the construction of nuclear power plants. . http://www.democracynow.org/2011/2/15/obamas_37_trillion_budget_calls_for
Obama’s $3.7 Trillion Budget Calls for Military Spending Increases and Deep Cuts to Social Service Programs

President Obama has proposed the largest DoD budget since World War II, $553 billion (not including war funding and nuclear weapons funding in the Department of Energy). Much attention has been shined on Secretary of Defense Gates’proposal to “cut” $78 billion inthe Pentagonbudget. Those “cuts” take place over five years with reductions taking place after the 2012 election in 2014 and 2015. And, the “cuts” do not include the cost of wars. The Afghanistan war alone could eat up projected “savings” and if the CIA’s war in Pakistan escalates that will be an even bigger budget item. Further, we have not seen what the continuing U.S. military footprint in Iraq will cost. These projected cuts are more image than reality.
How does military spending impact Americans? President Reagan’s former assistant secretary of defenseLawrenceKorb describes the military budget as “an annual tax of more than $7,000 on every household in the country.”While increasing the security budget, Obama and the Democrats have proposed widespread cuts to critical programs from a 50% cut in low-income heating assistance to nearly a 30% cut to the clean drinking water fund. They have also proposed a 25% cut ($1.3 billion) to the community development block grants used to fund local community development including affordable housing, anti-poverty programs, and infrastructure development. These are essential services needed for Americans health, safety and economic security.Of course, Republican cuts in the House budget are even more extreme but Obama set the table for them by making the debate about deficits and both parties will not touch the security budget. Military analyst, William Hartung, writes “These cuts will be painful, and they will be felt in every middle- and lower-income household in America.”
Cities and states are cutting essential services to balance their budgets. U.S. taxpayers will spend $737billion for Pentagon spending for FY2011 including war funding). To get a sense of what these means, for the same amount of money tax payers could provide funding for 11.3 million elementary school teachers for one year or 93.5 million scholarships for university students for one year or restart the economy by providing 166.9 million households with renewable electricity - solar photovoltaic for one year.Instead all these programs face cutbacks, while military spending grows.
The Security Budget vs. the Necessities of Americans.
President Obama and the Congress have taken 66% of discretionary spending in the federal budget off the table –the SecurityBudget – while proposing a freeze to the rest of the budget and deep cuts ...
