[PEACE …. the fight for whitespace]
Some might ask “Why are you studying strategies of war? Isn’t that morbid and pessimistic? Aren’t we supposed to be trying to be peaceful people?”
Yes, we are. But, life is full of conflict, ying and yang, love and hate. I love cheese. I hate sauerdraut (can’t even spell it). The thing about our lives dealing with conflict and such is that to be peaceful does not necessarily mean we don’t have conflict. Maybe by definition of the words they do, but when I say “peaceful” I mean that idyllic lifestyle which is just as comfortable for me as it is for you. And, for that kind of lifestyle, we must fight. We have to fight the urges to punch you in the face when you accidentally break my BBQ I so graciously let you borrow last week. I have to fight the anger welling up inside. I have to fight against the rotten.
To have a “peaceful” existence is to have a pure, absent-of-crap-on-the-walls existence. That only comes by fighting for it!
And, to fight effectively requires the best strategies.
