Law 26

Keep Your Hands Clean

You must seem a paragon of civility and efficiency: Your hands are never soiled by mistakes and nasty deeds. Maintain such a spotless appearance by using others as scapegoats and cat’s-paws to disguise your involvement.

I was going to say that anyone who chose to live their life according to these rules must be the most miserable human being on the planet.
Law 2

Never put too Much Trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies

Be wary of friends-they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.
Seriously? We don't have enough troubles in life but that we should "make enemies" on purpose?

It's a tactic that the decision makers in the cases John outlined are obviously using. They don't mind using such timeless tactics. You don't have to use them just because you know how they work.
