In The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli says, “it is much safer to be feared than loved because ...love is preserved by the link of obligation which, owing to the baseness (lack of character) of men, is broken at every opportunity for their advantage; but fear preserves you by a dread of punishment which never fails.”
This advice was intended for political leaders, but it can be applied to a number of situations. In your response, you must make an argument for both sides then explain which approach you believe is most effective.
You will have at least three paragraphs that are 4-5 sentences in length. One paragraph will be about why being feared is better than being loved. Another paragraph about why it is better to be loved than feared and then a final paragraph where you explain which one you believe is more effective AND why you believe this to be true.
