One of the world’s greatest military strategists was Sun Tzu. He was the author attributed to have written the timeless and always relevant book, The Art of War. Military leaders have throughout the centuries, since its writing 2500 years ago, read and studied this amazing book. Our military leaders study this book.
Some recent Sun Tzu devotees are Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf, both former four-star U.S. Army Generals. Its strategies are as pertinent and applicable today in Iraq and Afghanistan as they were when Sun Tzu led his troops.
I’ve read The Art of War multiple times. Anyone who is married should read it. Marriage can be war at times, usually a bloodless one, but war nonetheless. Sorry dear, of course, I’m referring to other couples.
Sun Tzu’s principles are so potent and useful they have been adapted to many other areas of interests too. There are: Sun Tzu The Art of War for Managers, Sun Tzu for Success, Sun Tzu The Art of Making Money, Sun Tzu and the Art of Business, and more.
Sun Tzu’s book opens with this statement:
The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence under no circumstance can it be neglected.
Now, let’s bring Sun Tzu’s principles to bear on our own cultural war. The war we are engaged in is real. Many do not understand this. They spiritualize or philosophize its reality away. This war is just as real as any war fought with guns, missiles, and bombs. People die in this war every day. One baby already died in the time it took you to read this paragraph. Is that real enough?
The casualties include over a million aborted babies each year. They are dead. So far, 55 million have died in the United States. Casualties include drug abusers who overdose and die. They include the young boys and girls who suffer gang violence.
You could also include in the numbers, the many families that die through divorce or extramarital affairs. The family unit is the foundation of this country and the progressives continue to try and redefine God’s definition: a man and a woman. Any other definition will result in death and destruction.
If we look at Republicans and conservatives, in general, we can see that they just are not as good as progressives in fighting this war. Progressives know how to get their messages out and their programs in place. I see the left employing Sun Tzu’s tactics. And, they continue to win.
For example, the homosexual community and those that push their agenda, like Hollywood and the media, use a classic Sun Tzu strategy. They understand this war and fight it far more effectively than conservatives.
Sun Tzu said this:
To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.
We seem to have succumbed to acceptance of this particular perversion with little resistance. The fact is that America’s resistance to the homosexual agenda is dissolving fast. 50% or more, depending on which poll you believe, of Americans now accept homosexual marriage. This figure has risen quickly over the last few years. This moral barometer points to a further demise of the traditional family and of the moral fabric of America itself. They have effectively broken our resistance without fighting.
The homosexuals use another Sun Tzu tactic as presented in The Art of War:
All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.
Homosexuals have sucessfully convinced masses of Americans that gays and lesbians, comprise up to 25% of the American population. If you watch contemporary television shows or movies, you probably believe this. A regular part of entertainment media is to include a homosexual character The big push now is lesbianism. Women kissing women and beyond this, is common on prime time televison. Don’t forget, “All warfare is based on deception.”
The truth is, and many will debate this fact homosexuals make up only about 3 % of the population. When they are small and weak, they portray a mass presence in every corner of society. They are loud. They are vocal. They are visible and active. Thus, they pull it off. We think they are everywhere. They are not.
Let me state for the record I do not hate homosexuals. I never have. I do hate their lifestyle. I do hate what their way of life does to them, loved ones, children, and our nation. These things I do hate. And, yes, I think God hates what they do too.
All of this to say, why don’t we conservatives use a little Sun Tzu sometime. We can still be nice, but be firm. We can not compromise every time and give up more and more ground to the enemy. You will probably see this compromising spirit possess the Republicans with the current Immigration Bill.
Another thing. We need to realize that progressives are our enemies. Their policies are destructive. They are the enemies of the people they entrap in their programs and lies. Have you known many to escape welfare and food stamps and other hand outs? Some do, but they are few.
These victims who vote for these deceivers, march for them, and give their money to them, but don’t realize they are prisoners of war. They are pawns, useful idiots, and despised by the very ones who are supposed to be serving them and protecting them. I truly wish they could see the truth.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes by Sun Tzu:
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in ever battle.
Take special note of that last sentence. Do you know yourself? Do you know your enemy? Do you even know who your enemy is? Now get out there and fight for what is right.
