From this arises the question whether it is better to be loved rather than feared, or feared rather than loved. It might perhaps be answered that we should wish to be both: but since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved. A leader ought to inspire fear in such a way that, if he does not win love, he avoids hatred. Machiavelli


But, of course, Machiavelli was dealing with the running of a state. A person may love his ruler when he prospers and hate them when he fails. But a sword is always a sword.

...Now you could say that that has its applications and parallels in everyday life, but that would make you a cynical bastard. And is that really how you want to prove your argument?

I'd say that it's better to be loved than feared. But, I've had people who say that they love me in the hopes that they could use that to their advantage in some way. So I'd also say that it's better to be loved than to have people want you to love them.

Is it better to be feared or loved?

Maybe.. Loved..

Why do you believe your choice?

Well, nothing good will come from being feared.. Being loved feels great, but it also has its downsides.

What are the benefits of your choice over the other option?

None.. I can't think of anything good that comes from being feared. ><

Fear is inspired by power and if people fear the source of that power, they will do what the person said to great ephiciency or else. If it was love that ruled over that, people would most likely be laid back and will make mistakes. This is in the subject of ruling people.

In everyday life, it is better to be loved than feared. Allies are way better than opponents
