4 A. Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513.
“It should be borne in mind that there is nothing more dangerous to carry through than initiating changes. The innovator makes enemies of all those who prospered under the old order, and only lukewarm support is forthcoming from those who prosper under the new. Their support is lukewarm partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the existing laws on their side, and partly because men are generally incredulous, mever really trusting new things unless they have tested them by experience. In consequence, whenever those who oppose the changes can do so, they attack vigorously, and the defense made by the others is ineffective. So both the innovator and his friends are endangered together”. A. Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513.
