i had an essay prompt, write about what Machiavelli would think if he encountered mencius' novel, mencius. I was looking for ideas to get started.

Ways I thought he would disagree with Mencius is the importance of profit (Mencius- for the people, Machiavelli- for the prince himself), submitting to a smaller state, sharing enjoyment with the people, being involved and concerned in your people's lives (ie donating money if necessary), view on punishment, etc.)

I couldn't think of ways they agree though.

thanks
