    The vigor of a society is directly proportional to its capacity to conduct difficult conversations.

    VICTIM CULTURE IS WRECKING A LOT OF IMPORTANT THINGS, TO INCLUDE GUTS AND RESILIENCE.

    If the American military and politicians had read Sun Tzu instead of its belief in technological superiority, perhaps the outcome in Viet Nam would have been far different. But your leaders had full faith that technology would do the trick. Ted Cruz still believes that today.

    The Art of War has a lot of good wisdom that can be applied to non-military situations as well.
