Machiavelli is a pretty controversial figure in the history of politics and philosophy at the best of times. You can ask people who will paint him as some kind of pre-cursor to totalitarianism or otherwise one of history’s greatest monsters. On the other hand, however, you will get people who praise him for his insights into life and politics.
