Acting in according to the political phiolosophies set out by Niccolo Machiavelli, a Florentine Philosopher/Political Scientist living in the sixteenth century.
Contrary to popular belief, a true follower of Machiavelli, or a Machiavellian, is not a cold hearted, soulless being willing to use any means necessary to claw his way to the top of the political spectrum. Rather, even a cursory reading of The Prince or of the Discourses on Livy reveal that Machiavelli's ideal politician is one who subsumes his personal interests and if possible his personal identity to forward the good of the state that he works for. (which does not necessarily mean for the good of the world, just his own little community.)
