What is the purpose of this ability?

Why would anyone invest on this card if he needs to forego 2 florins in sales?

Machiavellianism (card x39 in the expansion deck) has the ability "Pragmatic Treachery: When selling a card, perform its civil war, crusade, or apostasy on-shot instead of getting 2 Florins."

Normally, a one-shot can only be performed once, when the card is first played. This ability allows you to perform the one-shot on a second occasion, as an alternative to cash when the card is sold. During playtesting, Machiavellianism proved to be a useful and unexpected endgame strategy to expend your tableau cards to achieve a particular victory and gain kingdoms or republics.

Ah thanks Phil.

I forgot that a card can be sold directly from a tableau.

It is an essential "blitz" card then.
