A conversation with Machiavelli’™s ghost: Controversial neoconservative Ledeen talks to Raw Story

Leedeen, who is best known for his involvement as a courier in the Iran-Contra scandal, describes himself as a democratic revolutionary. He believes that mankind is inclined toward war and has a dismal, Hobbesian view of history. Against that context, he says, ‘œI’™m not sure Machiavelli was wrong when he said that ‘man is more inclined to do evil than to do good.’™’

This is part 1 of the series and Larisa Alexandrovna of RawStory does an excellent job of asking tough, relevant questions.
