"Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak." Sun Tzu
13 Chapters of considered brilliance by a man who deciphered the art of war. Not sure why there were 13, but I'm sure the foes were the unlucky some.
In the 80's it became a business bible. All of a sudden, capitalism became a theatre of war. Corporate guns loaded up and took aim at perceived enemies. Invade, capture, rape, pillage and reap the monetary rewards. My dad did an MBA in the 80's and offered me a copy. I tried to read it. I tried to understand it. I pretended to, but it was like reading Shakespeare. I got the gist, but the real meaning was lost in translation.
As an older man, all this stuff is starting to make sense;
Attack by Stratagem
Use of Energy
Weak Points and Strong
Manoeuvre an Army
Variation of Tactics
The Army on the March
Classification of Terrain
The Nine Situations
Attack by Fire
Use of Spies
And I like to add a 14th chapter, chaos.
Pick and choose what you want, when you want. The matrix can bend, but can't break. Don’t forget, revenge is a dish best served cold.
