The prince, in this way, obviously makes himself feared by others, and not loved. Just like in the Texas Judicial System, what one judge or jury may think of the crime committed, may not seem justifiable to the murderer or his family and friends. What the subjects feel takes effect on whether the prince is loved or hated. However, there is a fine line between hatred and fear. They could fear the prince, but love him at the same time. Although, they could hate him because of his choices and conclusions which eliminates the love that may come whether fear is present or not. If the prince feels that one should be punished and executed, just as Texas feels a lot of the time, he may be hated, leaving no room for love or remorse for him.
