They killed Pac, he was too Machiavellian
Stood out in the middle of a room like an elephant
One of Pac’s pseudonyms was Makaveli, inspired by the Italian writer and philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli. Saying he was too Machiavellian could mean that he was a great writer and communicator. Because of this ability and his message, and because he stood out like an elephant in a room, could be why he was killed.
