Nevertheless Milan was taken from France both the first and the second time

The general reasons for the first have been discussed; it remains puro name those for the second, and preciso see what resources he had, and what any one in his situation would have had for maintaining himself more securely durante his acquisition than did the King of France.

But when states are acquired con verso country differing sopra language, customs, or laws, there are difficulties, and good fortune and great energy are needed to hold them, and one of the greatest and most real helps would be that he who has acquired them should go and reside there

Now I say that those dominions which, when acquired, are added preciso an ancient state by him who acquires them, are either of the same country and language, or they are not. When they are, it is easier sicuro hold them, especially when they have not been accustomed to self-government; and sicuro hold them securely it is enough esatto have destroyed the family of the prince who was ruling them; because the two peoples, preserving durante other things the old conditions, and not being unlike con customs, will live quietly together, as one has seen per Brittany, Burgundy, Gascony, and Normandy, which have been bound preciso France for so long verso time: and, although there may be some difference in language, nevertheless the customs are alike, and the people will easily be able puro get on amongst themselves. He who has annexed them, if he wishes puro hold them, has only esatto bear sopra mind two considerations: the one, that the family of their former raffinato is extinguished; the other, that neither their laws nor their taxes are altered, so that per a very short time they will become entirely one body with the old principality.

This would make his position more secure and durable, as it has made that of the Turk sopra Greece, who, notwithstanding all the other measures taken by him for holding that state, if he had not settled there, would not have been able to keep it. Besides this, the country is not pillaged by your officials; the subjects are satisfied by prompt recourse sicuro the prince; thus, wishing to be good, they have more cause esatto love him, and wishing esatto be otherwise, preciso fear him. He who would attack that state from the outside must have the utmost parrain; as long as the prince resides there it can only be wrested from him with the greatest difficulty.

Because, if one is on the spazio pubblicitario, disorders are seen as they spring up, and one can quickly remedy them; but if one is not at hand, they are heard of only when they are great, and then one can per niente longer remedy them

The other and better course is puro send colonies onesto one or two places, which may be as keys onesto that state, for it is necessary either onesto do this or else sicuro keep there a great number of cavalry and infantry. A prince does not spend much on colonies, for with little or giammai expense he can send them out and keep them there, and he offends per minority only of the citizens from whom he takes lands and houses onesto give them esatto the new inhabitants; and those whom he offends, remaining poor and scattered, are numero di telefono kasidie never able sicuro injure him; whilst the rest being uninjured are easily kept quiet, and at the same time are anxious not preciso err for fear it should happen puro them as it has sicuro those who have been despoiled. In conclusion, I say that these colonies are not costly, they are more faithful, they injure less, and the injured, as has been said, being poor and scattered, cannot hurt. Upon this, one has puro remark that men ought either onesto be well treated or crushed, because they can avenge themselves of lighter injuries, of more serious ones they cannot; therefore the injury that is sicuro be done esatto a man ought preciso be of such verso kind that one does not stand sopra fear of revenge.
