Current events have had proverbs rattling around in my head.
“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.” - Sun Tzu
Can POTUS ever be weak?
Is this currently happening?
Is enemy of my enemy is my friend, or my enemy? - ancient proverb
So if Terror is our enemy, who are our friends? Who is the enemy of Terror? Peace?
“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.”
― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Are alternative facts just the deception in the war on institutions, rights, and environment?
The answers are irrelevant.
The reminder to stay vigilant in the protection of the important is the key.
