Political science professor says being Machiavellian isn’t bad. In fact, all successful countries in the world have Machiavellian leaders

Sa mga nag screenshots ng bad definition sa facebook na cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous, ayan.. Basa..

This is message of political blogger Noel Landero Sarifa to critics of BBM who were posting the bad definition of Machiavellian on Facebook.

Sarifa reposted the quote card from SMNI News quoting Prof. Anna Malindog-Uy to counter their misinformation against BBM.

According to the Prof. Malindog-Uy, being Machiavellian isn’t bad. She thinks a leader should be Machiavellian.

As a Machiavellian, your pragmatic decisions are always based on what is good for the country and for your people.

Prof. Malindog-Uy remarked that all successful countries in the world, they have Machiavellian leaders. That’s the meaning of Machiavellian, the leaders are realistic. If you are a Machiavellian, you are realistic.

Here are some of the interesting comments from netizens below.

Netizen #1 commented that perhaps the BBM critics only read the negative meaning of Machiavellian. This goes to show how shallow-minded the Dilawans are.

Naku baka yung negative side na meaning na naman a ang iniisip nila. Pinapakita lang talaga itong mga pinklawan ang kababawan ng kanilang pag-iisip. Walang lamang ang kanilang coconut shell…Pero sa totoo lang sa aking opinion dapat magkatuwang ang negative at positive side ng isang machiavellian leader para mas matagumpay ang kaniyang pamumuno. (eg)ang isang matagumpay na pinuno o leader dapat minsan mabagsik may kamay na bakal at minsan kaylangan din nandyan ang pagsisinungaling. Dahil hindi lahat ng panahon at pagkakataon ay magsasabi ka ng katotohanan, kumbaga may top secret. Yun ang idea ko sa isang matagumpay na pinuno subalit nadudun pa rin ang kaniyang kababaang loob at may hinanakit o pagmamahal sa kaniyang sinasakupang pinamumunuan.

Netizen #2 wrote that even the successful companies are headed by CEO’s who have Machiavellian trait.

pati mga tagumpay na malalaking companya, ang kanilang CEO ay machiavellian din ang trait.

Netizen #3 said he preferred a realistic leader over a dumb plastic leader who pretends he/she is brilliant.

Mas maganda Yung leader na realistic kesa SA isang leader na lutang na plastik na nagpapanggap na magaling SA lahat Ng bagay.😂😂😂

Netizen #4 remarked that we have an oversupply of genius commenters but did not get to watch the SMNI DEEP PROBE and heard BBM’s explanation why he is a Machiavellian.

Ang dami kasing “sobrang talino” na nagkokoment lalo na kung hindi naman sila nanood ng SMINI DEEP PROBE base dun sa explanation ni BBM. They just relying on the news of the bias mainstream media coupled with political agenda to destroy him.

Reaction?
