The 48 Laws of Power (Animated)

I crafted this summary of the 48 Laws of Power in anger. It is the end result of 2 years of animating all chapters condensed for your viewing pleasure. Surely, you’ve heard the phrase “Hate the game, not the player.” I’m exposing the game and the players for you.

Being honest and speaking the truth has been a punishing and not at all rewarding experience, since most people will always shoot the messenger. I aim to raise awareness and arm the clueless for self-protection. I am not advocating becoming a manipulating and ruthless sociopath.

I can’t respect those who don’t understand the difference. It’s a self-improvement book, not the work of the devil. Robert Greene is all about intense realism. Seeing things for what they are, whether you like the truth or not.

Hopefully you’ll find the video helpful, learn from it and share it with others. I’ve received plenty of messages from good people claiming it changed their lives for the better.

Don’t let others use and abuse you. Don’t live in a fantasy land. Be cautious. Read this book or don’t. It’s up to you.

The law “keep your hands clean” seems to conflict with other laws to some extent, dont you think?

How to buy it in Pakistan

Grace's Adventure says:

I enjoy this very much

apostle333 says:

This is basically an adapted and abridged version of Sun Tzu’s art of war…
There are a a handful of divergent thought experiments, but it’s put together very well.
VERY compressed, but excellently presented.
A very quick view of historical strategy and politics…

Michael McConnell says:

Great.  I love Robert Greene’s books

dudle core says:

#18 is probably one of the biggest casues of depression.

jacob kreilkamp says:

Let’s say the setting is America (vespucci?)at the time of this comment. Does a vast majority of the population underestimate the power of symbols? Symbols of all kinds from flags to app Icons or even bolded letters like a “breaking news headline”.

Kush I says:

So what does all this mean?

Paul A says:

I can’t help but loving anything that encourages a badass attitude.

*Edit: Clarification*

1. The laws are not rules. They’re general principles. They’re situational and not instructional.
2. You disagree with the term “laws”? Tell Robert Greene, the author, who disagrees with you.
3. The laws are separate. They’re not meant to be harmonious. This is obvious.
4. Law 48 – Sparta won the Peloponnesian war with Athens. I’m speaking of Sparta’s collapse / economic defeat.
5. “The book is evil.” – Is the book not merely a reflection of what human beings are like?
6. “The book should be banned.” You belong to the people who would’ve burnt books back in the day.
7. Psychopaths / sociopaths do not need to read in order to become what they are. It’s their nature.
8. The author’s intent, my intent is to speak the truth. Deny it all you want. It’s a weak mind that runs from reality.
9. Almost all the laws have a reversal, which I have included in plenty of other videos on my channel.
10. This is but a short summary of the book to make you curious. It’s not a substitute. I recommend reading it.
11. This is not advocating bad behavior. This is a dojo teaching self-protection from the very people you condemn.
12. Fools shoot the messenger. It’s a damn shame youtube comment sections are generally avoided by the intelligent for obvious reasons. Try to understand before you perpetuate outrage culture.

Bonus: I am not an atheist. I am not an agnostic. I do not believe in a man sitting in the cloud, a religion a 5 year old could debunk. I very much like Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s and Dr. Jordan B. Peterson’s views on the matter, but I’ve also digested Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins’ and Christopher Hitchens work. I love the idea of en-theos, the god within, also referenced a lot by Ralph Waldo Emerson. All of them are intellectuals I respect a lot. All of them speak of virtues, morals and principles, which I live my life by. I love my neighbors and this is how I help them. I invite you to be more open-minded.

Careful, when you try to reprimand me without understanding what I’m doing here, because I do not tolerate virtue-signaling hypocrites who take the moral high ground and claim to be superior only to insult the innocent of crimes the hypocrites are committing. People who take a shit on the street, when no one sees them, then proceed to attack their neighbors for spitting in their own bathroom sink.

I’d rather you listened carefully, since I am here to learn and teach. Nothing good will come from you holding on to your delusions. *”Nature has made up her mind that what cannot defend itself shall not be defended.”* – R. W. Emerson

*PS:* The clarification was only necessary, because of and addressing the 3-4% of dislikers. The vast majority understood the aim of this project immediately. It’s always the loud minority, prone to which hunts, that attempts to disrupt powered by strong, but misguided emotion.

The ones with the least to say always want to be heard the most. The baby cries, mommy gives milk. That’s how it works, doesn’t it? Not here, but it’s a teaching moment. That’s how the weak make society succumb to their demands. A lot of power in claiming victimhood status and preaching for atrocities disguised as “just causes.” You get to be righteous. You get preferential treatment. Blaming others for your shortcomings is not only acceptable, it’s expected. […]

*Again, most people grasped the gist of it right of the bat, which I’m very grateful for. Thank you for reading.*

Sounds overly pessimistic and cynical of humans. Also Sparta defeated Athens(although Athen’s influence is still with us today in the form of democracy,etc.

Wonwith Everything says:

I’ve read and listened to this book. Very good execution of the laws. Not every situation is a powerplay, thanks for your follow up. Clarifying what is considered “common sense” should be a disclaimer on everything!

Oriole Crumbley says:

Law 42: (See Libya)

apostle333 says:

Oh my!….I wasn’t until I watched it completely did I realize exactly what you did!
You’ve made a brilliant marriage of Sun Tzu/ And Machiovelli’s The Prince…AND related it to modern culture…
Re-viewing my thoughts WHILST watching, I must say that this is clearly more “the Prince” than it is Sun Tzu, but is most definately both.

Well done sir.

Kuddly Koala says:

I fear the u.s has stretched it’s armies to thin and abroad. Rule 23 may be the result of it’s foolishness .

Aaron Wolfenbarger says:

Actually concentrating your forces is viable in that situation ONLY. because when dealing with a general who will take what you said to heart ( a fool) then a clever general on the opposition will divide his forces and attack from differing fronts or even worse lure your concentrated forces away to strike at their true objective.

Guitar Gangsta says:

WOW !!! awesome effort – thank you !!
