A (Humorous) Twist on Machiavelli

Is it better for a leader to be loved or feared?

This question, famously posed by Machiavelli in The Prince, has become a political science staple.

Steve Cavell's character in The Office, when asked the question, offered a suitably self-satisfied reply. Cavell's Michael Gary Scott wants people to be afraid of how much they love him. :-)
