In War, thought and consideration is of the utmost importance

Quoting from the strategist Sun Tzu again, “…when your weapons are dulled, your ardor damped, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.” 


There was once a time that I put a lot of faith in the “leaders” of this country. But I have realized, with much trial and tribulation, that we need liberty in America, not “leaders.” In times of War a policy of thought and consideration means giving thought to what is near and what is remote. We have seen many who have shown they have not the skill for this. They are what Brendan O’Neil calls laptop bombadeers.

It was once said, “If people do not consider what is remote, they will have trouble near at hand.” Accordingly, “educated people think without leaving their positions.” Thinking means correct strategy, consideration means thinking of plans for eventualities. One is not to plan policy when it is not one’s place to do so., or consider the scheme of things that are none of one’s business.

Major affairs can have many difficulties. The larger the event the easier it is for small things to happen. Therefore, if you want to think of the advantages of the situation it would be wise to consider what harm could arise from it. If you want to be successful you must consider the many things that could make the action a failure.
Danger arises in safety, destruction arises in survival. Harm can come from advantage and chaos from order.

Enlightened people see the obvious and see the subtle; they know the end when they see the beginning; thus there is no way for disaster to arise. This only comes from thoughtful consideration.
