48 Laws of Power FRIDAYS! - Law 31

Law 31: Control the options: Get others to play with the cards you deal.

What I obtain from this law is:

In order to not seem like an asshole, you should give your victims a choice.  Make your victims seem like that are in control.  However in all actuality, they are your "puppets".  SMH.......  

By giving them options (where each one will show you favor), it forces them to make choices between the lesser of two evils.  

Do I think that this law is fair?  No.  Nevertheless, if a person allows him/herself to be coerced into choosing something..... well who I am to judge both parties.  When I read this law, I kept thinking about relationships and ultimatums.   

Lastly it reminds me of Law 3.
