Dear Prince Dramani Mahama of Bole Bamboi


Dear Author,

You have done yourself a lot of disservice by not stating upfront that your first paragraph is almost a verbatim lift from Machiavelli's "The Prince". Signing off as Machiavelli is deceitful, since you seem to imply the use of a pseudonym rather than attribution of citation. We need to be intellectually honest as we advise the ill-advised.
