“If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.”
As amoral and ruthless as Machiavelli was – his writings remain, perhaps, the most fundamental work on politics ever produced – because for all the brutality evinced in ‘The Prince’ – it depicts human nature in all its frightening reality.
The quote above is one of my favourites.
Again, because it is so amazingly perspicacious.
I was reminded of this quote whilst contemplating the actions of the Jersey oligarchy – and their UK establishment friends – against Lenny Harper and Graham Power.
The British establishment has striven mightily – moved Heaven & Earth, in fact – in an all-out attempt to destroy both men.
All ‘arms’, as Niccolo would describe them, have been deployed – used in an effort to annihilate Lenny & Graham – in a concentrated attack – like a type of ‘total war’.
In an act of desperation – the Jersey oligarchy – and the British establishment – whose closeted skeletons, as the Jersey crew well know, still carry a substantial degree of “influence” – have staked everything on a desperate last throw of the dice.
And they’ve blown it.
Whilst their smear campaigns and lies will have damaged the reputations of both men in the eyes of some casual observers – the “injury” done to both was nothing like “severe” enough to deliver safety from vengeance.
Both men – having withstood the very worst that the oligarchy could do – remain on their feet – and barely scratched.
The oligarchy – and its allies now stand spent – exhausted – and ‘bear of arms’.
So now – Mr. Harper and Mr. Power stand poised – to deliver their lethal vengeance.
Metaphorically speaking – you understand?
The fight-back begins today.
The Belfast Evening News carries a piece today – available on its website – in which Mr. Harper makes some initial and slight response to the injuries which the oligarchy have attempted to inflict on him – and upon the victims.
It is merely an opening gambit.
There is an awful lot more to come into the public domain yet.
Observe the media during the coming days – yea – even the Jersey media.
But don’t worry if The Rag fails to deliver the goods; if they don’t – I will.
Given the facts which stand implacable – I would like to refer you to an article published today by The Times – written by one Mick Hume.
Forgive me if you have to copy & paste this, but here is the address:
If that doesn’t work – just go to The Times website and search for ‘No murder at the Mansion’.
I would like to invite my readers to read Mr. Hume’s article – read it closely and carefully; turn it over in your mind – absorb it – contemplate it.
Indeed – give it the benefit of the doubt.
Once you have done so – consider: this is the very best that a bizarre and perverse alliance between the British establishment and a load of old commie apologists for genocide can come up with. (All will be explained.)
Then in a couple of days I will write a post which dissects Mr. Hume’s article.
And whilst you’re waiting – spare a thought for the poor, deluded Jersey oligarchy.
If only they had read old Niccolo – perhaps they would not now be left contemplating a ruinous – but self-inflicted and indefensible – last stand.
“Men ought either to be indulged or utterly destroyed, for if you merely offend them they take vengeance, but if you injure them greatly they are unable to retaliate, so that the injury done to a man ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared.”
I sense vengeance upon the air.
