Quote of the day …

“It is much safer to be feared than loved because … love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage; but fear preserves you by a dread of punishment which never fails.”

Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince

    The problem is that society wants to punish the miscreants involved in MS-13 and ISIS, but they do not fear society one bit. Defiant and supposedly fearless except when it comes to their internal organizational agenda. MS-13 fear each other. ISIS fears their fake god.
