Six Ways of Ruling- three of six

Being benevolent and true is how to arrive at genuineness. The prince should not believe that what he is doing is right merely because he is the prince. He should know that what he is doing would be right whether he were prince or not – that is the way for him to be genuine.

Being genuine also means being logical. This is not even our genuiness particularly. It is just a star in the sky that everyone can see. If we’re in doubt, we need to reconnect with being benevolent and true.
