machiavelli

thanks to everyone who voted. we had an magnificent turnout of close to 17 votes (of which at least 12 were mine)

Machiavelli won, with Nietzsche and Strauss coming in a close second. outstanding results everyone. let democracy continue to thrive on the beautiful world in which we are so privileged to rule (and be ruled,) let the story live on!

    aristotle because of his influence on story structure and how to captivate audiences emotion based on when to queue certain story elements. film bias of course but he’s my pick!

    I’m out of my element but Foucault because he helped develop postmodern theory and wrote on theory in images!
