Law Twenty-Five: Re-Create Yourself


Greene avers that an individual needs to avoid some role in the society that prevents him from attaining growth. A person, therefore, needs to be in a situation where he can attain a new identity (Greene 191). Through recreation, the person has a chance to command a newer and larger audience. People also need to be masters of their image, instead of allowing others to define them. Through the inclusion of dramatic devices in actions and public gestures, a person has a high likelihood of enhancing his power. In the early Roman society in 65 B.C, Julius Caesar re-invented himself as a strong ruler (Greene 192). He became a skilled horseman and engaged in activities that were a mark of bravery. The aim was, thus, to attract a high level of following from his subjects.
