Then stand aside and let public opinion hang them. Law 6: Court attention at all cost Everything is judged by its appearance; what is unseen counts for nothing. Never let yourself get lost in the crowd, then, or buried in oblivion. Stand out. Be conspicuous, at all cost. Make yourself a magnet of attention by appearing larger, more colorful, more mysterious than the bland and timid masses.
Law 7: Get others to do the work for you, but always take the credit Use the wisdom, knowledge, and legwork of other people to further your own cause.
Not only will such assistance save you valuable time and energy, it will give you a godlike aura of efficiency and speed. In the end your helpers will be forgotten and you will be remembered. Never do yourself what others can do for you. Law 8: Make other people come to you—use bait if necessary When you force the other person to act, you are the one in control. It is always better to make your opponent come to you, abandoning his own plans in the process.
Lure him with fabulous gains—then attack. You hold the cards. Law 9: Win through your actions, never through an argument Any momentary triumph you think you have gained through argument is really a Pyrrhic victory: The resentment and ill will you stire up is stronger and lasts longer than any momentary change of opinion. It is much more powerful to get others to agree with you through your actions, without saying a word.
Demonstrate, do not explicate. You may feel you are helping the drowning man but you are only precipitating your own disaster.
The unfortunate sometimes draw misfortune on themselves; they will also draw it on you. Associate with the happy and fortunate instead. Law Learn to keep people dependent on you To maintain your independence you must always be needed and wanted.
The more you are relied on, the more freedom you have. Make people depend on you for their happiness and prosperity and you have nothing to fear. Never teach them enough so that they can do without you. Law Use selective honesty and generosity to disarm your victim One sincere and honest move will cover over dozens of dishonest ones. Open-hearted gestures of honesty and generosity bring down the guard of even the most suspicious people.
Once your selective honesty opens a hole in their armor, you can deceive and manipulate them at will. A timely gift—a Trojan horse—will serve the same purpose. He will find a way to ignore you. Instead, uncover something in your request, or in your alliance with him, that will benefit him, and emphasize it out of all proportion. He will respond enthusiastically when he sees something to be gained for himself. Law Pose as a friend, work as a spy Knowing about your rival is critical.
Use spies to gather valuable information that will keep you a step ahead. Better still: Play the spy yourself. In polite social encounters, learn to probe. Ask indirect questions to get people to reveal their weaknesses and intentions.
There is no occasion that is not an opportunity for artful spying. Law Crush your enemy totally All great leaders since Moses have known that a feared enemy must be crushed completely.
Sometimes they have learned this the hard way. If one ember is lefta light, no matter how dimly it smolders, a fire will eventually break out.
More is lost through stopping halfway than through total annihilation: The enemy will recover, and will seek revenge. Crush him, not only in body but in spirit. Law Use absence to increase respect and honor Too much circulation makes the price go down: The more you are seen and heard from, the more common you appear.
If you are already established in a group, temporary withdrawal from it will make you more talked about, even more admired. You must learn when to leave. Create value through scarcity.
Your predictability gives them a sense of control. Turn the tables: Be deliberately unpredictable. Behavior that seems to have no consistency or purpose will keep them off-balance, and they will wear themselves out trying to explain your moves. Taken to an extreme, this strategy can intimidate and terrorize. Law Do not build fortresses to protect yourself—isolation is dangerous The world is dangerous and enemies are everywhere—everyone has to protect themselves.
A fortress seems the safest. But isolation exposes you to more dangers than it protects you from—it cuts you off from valuable information, it makes you conspicuous and an easy target.
Better to circulate among people, find allies, mingle.
You are shielded from your enemies by the crowd. Deceive or outmanuever some people and they will spend the rest of their lives seeking revenge.
Choose your victims and opponents carefully, then—never offend or deceive the wrong person. Law Do not commit to anyone It is the fool who always rushes to take sides. Do not commit to any side or cause but yourself. By maintaining your independence, you become the master of others—playing people against one another, making them pursue you. Law Play a sucker to catch a sucker—seem dumber than your mark No one likes feeling stupider than the next person. The trick, then, is to make your victims feel smart—and not just smart, but smarter than you are.
Once convinced of this, they will never suspect that you may have ulterior motives. Surrender gives you time to recover, time to torment and irritate your conqueror, time to wait for his power to wane.
Do not give him the satisfaction of fighting and defeating you—surrender first.
By turning the other cheek you infuriate and unsettle him. Make surrender a tool of power. Law Concentrate your forces Conserve your forces and energies by keeping them concentrated at their strongest point. You gain more by finding a rich mine and mining it deeper, than by flitting from one shallow mine to another—intensity defeats extensity every time. When looking for sources of power to elevate you, find the one key patron, the fat cow who will give you milk for a long time to come.
Law Play the perfect courtier The perfect courtier thrives in a wholrd 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.
Law Recreate yourself Do not accept the roles that society foists on you. Re-create yourself by forging a new identity, one that commands attention and never bores the audience. Be the master of your own image rather than letting others define it for you. Incorporate dramatic devices into your public gestures and actions—your power will be enhanced and your character will seem larger than life.
Law Keep your hands clean You must seem a paragon of civility and efficiency: Your hands are never soiled by mistakes and nasty deeds.
Become the focal point of such desire by offering them a cause, a new faith to follow. Keep your words vague but full of promise; emphasize enthusiasm over rationality and clear thinking. Give your new disciples rituals to perform, ask them to make sacrifices on your behalf.
In the absence of organized religion and grand causes, your new belief system will bring you untold power. Law Enter action with boldness If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Your doubts and hesitations will infect your execution.
Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily correctd with more audacity. Everyone admires the bold; no one honors the timid. Law Plan all the way to the end The ending is everything.
Plan all the way to it, taking into account all the possible consequences, obstacles, and twists of fortune that might reverse your hard work and give the glory to others. By planning to the end you will not be overwhelmed by circumstances and you will know when to stop.
Gently guide fortune and help determine the future by thinking far ahead. Law Make your accomplishments seem effortless Your actions must seem natural and executed with ease. All the toil and practice that go into them, and also all the clever tricks, must be concealed.
When you act, act effortlessly, as if you could do much more. Avoid the temptation of revealing how hard you work—it only raises questions. Teach no one your tricks or they will be used against you. Law 4: Always say less than necessary. At work, in relationships, on the street or on the 6 o'clock News: For anyone with an interest in conquest, self-defence, wealth, power or simply being an educated spectator, The 48 Laws of Power is one of the most useful and entertaining books ever; it ' teaches you how to cheat, dissemble, feign, fight and advance your cause in the modern world.
