the question love feared and something printed billing Okay well

00:24

here's our question he rasmus would most likely agree with

00:28

machiavelli that what And here a potential answers ready Well

00:35

just from looking at portrait of the two thinkers we

00:37

could probably conclude that they both agreed that gigantic pillowy

00:41

sleeves were highly fashionable at the time and that smiling

00:44

was for squares But we're looking for one of the

00:47

four answers provided so well let's just get to it

00:50

it can quickly be eliminated as neither author ever advocated

00:53

for the elimination of the church In fact erasmus would

00:56

be the first guy you'd find there because well he

00:59

loved it back The guy was called the crowning glory

01:01

of the christian humanists which means he was basically like

01:05

the michael phelps of christian humanism at the time he

01:08

rasmus did tend to focus on corruption but we know

01:11

from the passage that machiavelli focused on other things namely

01:15

how to become a strong and powerful leader and while

01:17

becoming a strong leader by way of instilling fear onto

01:20

the masses might be considered a tiny bit corrupt It

01:23

does make for an entertaining movie plot line on that

01:26

being said he doesn't fit but despite that neither of

01:29

them said the dictator's air necessarily evil More specifically they

01:33

didn't believe that dictators had to be evil to be

01:35

effective Just because something is scary doesn't make it necessarily

01:39

evil like your grandma's so called famous tuna casserole terrifying

01:43

certainly evil Well only time will tell one thing they

01:47

all agree on that writing can be misinterpreted as aggression

01:50

even though neither of the two ever actively opposed the

01:54

church The very fact that they focused on humanity got

01:57

them into some trouble with the catholic church who put

02:00

both of their books on the index of forbidden books

02:03

list But they're not alone Many churches tried to ban

02:07

the harry potter series seriously So either being banned by

02:10

the church isn't that big of a deal or harry

02:13

potter is actually an evil satanic texts that will one

02:16

day turn an entire generation of children into devil worshippers

02:20

But if that means we'd finally get to play some 00:02:21.853 --> [endTime] quidditch way probably be okay with it What
