THE TRADITIONAL DETERENT EFFECT
1) Kill people (aim for leaders, protect none).
2) Break their stuff and/or take it away for the victor’s use.
3) Leave them with no ability to recover quickly (in years).
4) Let only their friends help them.
5) Take notes (who helped?)
PEACE WILL REIGN UNTIL HISTORY IS LOST.
3rd career and 2nd childhood. Spends spare time repairing old things. Aspires to burn more gasoline, gunpowder, and ink in pursuit of slowing down. Child of the 60s and aspiring student of history. No desire to see us repeat the failed social experiments that keep failing for lack of human beings that meet the left wing standards and have to be killed off. Did engineering long enough to realize that very little is new and the wheel does not need to be reinvented.
