The famous text of Sun Tzu’s Art of War was written more than 2,400 years ago. It has provided timeless wisdom to countless military, political, and business leaders for millennium, and it offers us relevant insights today. Let’s start with this quote:
“In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy’s country whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to recapture an army entire than to destroy it, to capture a regiment, a detachment or a company entire than to destroy it.
Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting.”
If you can win a war without fighting, that’s clearly the best path forward. That said, common sense says achieving such supreme excellence is easier said than done.
What can we learn from this wisdom and how does it apply to today?
Follow the logic:
We are at war. Cultural war. Ideological war. Political war. Proxy war. Perhaps even civil war and/or a conventional war? More on this in a moment.
The enemy has a strategy. To ascertain this strategy would be highly advantageous. To understand the enemy is half the battle.
We need to have a strategy. Acknowledging that we are under attack is only the first step. Protesting the attacks is pointless. We need to play offense.
The fact that we are at war is often difficult to accept. Many people want to object and try to soften the language, “Well, it’s not really like we’re at War war…” —but the truth remains, we are at war, and it would be utterly foolish to deny this reality. To pretend that our country, our culture, our families, our beliefs, and even our personal well-being are not under direct and coordinated attack would be a fatal mistake.
It would also be a mistake to think that war is a bad thing. Yes, war can wreak havoc and cause unimaginable suffering and destruction—but it can also free slaves. While war can tear a country apart, it can also bring people together. War, when justly fought, can liberate humanity from the shackles of tyranny, intervene in genocide, and protect the innocent victims of evil intent.
Within these contexts, as difficult as it can be to acknowledge, war can be useful.
Please understand that I am absolutely not advocating for bloodshed or open warfare. I’m not suggesting we send our troops off to fight some foreign war. I am not in any way attempting to make light of the atrocities so often associated with the horrors of conventional warfare—but we are at war, and we are in fact losing.
Understanding the strategy of the enemy is perhaps the best way to grasp the gravity of the situation. How does the global elite intend to conquer and enslave humanity? By breaking our resistance without fighting. Better to capture the American population than destroy it, right? Hence the psychological warfare.
We call this politics.
Remember last week when I stated that the Baltic Sea Bombing was an act of war—even though nobody was acknowledging that fact in the moment?
Well, today we find this headline:
Other outlets are more subtle in their titles, but are still openly acknowledging this is “a declaration of war against Germany and against businesses and citizens of the EU.”
But this is just a small slice of the pie. Apparently the Baltic Sea Bombing has now pushed the ongoing “War of Economic Corridors” into uncharted territory, and this use of “Pipeline Terror” is just a part of a Straussian offensive aimed at severing the emerging energy-dependent relationship between Germany and Russia. Straussian strategies, come to find out, are all part of the Wolfwitz Doctrine—which more or less defined America’s post-Cold War strategy to maintain global dominance at all costs:
We are under attack.
To be clear, I’m not saying that the attacks on the Nord Stream were an attack on the American people. What I am saying, is that all of these global events reflect the fact that there are a bunch of globalist hacks who are battling for total control, and they’re having their way with humanity in the process.
That’s why there are people protesting against the global cabal all around the world:
That’s why Italy just elected a passionate patriotic prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, who has boldly called out the EU and NATO for their corruption and offered the world a wake up call regarding the strategies of the global elite:
In another speech she makes it clear:
“…Our main enemy today is the globalist drift of those who view identity and all its forms to be an evil to overcome. And constantly ask to shift real power away from the people to supernational entities headed by supposedly enlightened elites.
Let us be clear in our mind, because we did not fight against and defeat communism in order to replace it with a new international regime, but to permit independent nation states once again to defend the freedom, identity and sovereignty of their peoples…
It means that whether the false democrats like it or not, national conservatives in every latitude are actually the only real Democrats. Because it is only by defending the nation states, that we defend the political sovereignty that belongs to the citizens of that state…”
You see, it’s not just American values that are under attack. The same tactics, commie tactics, are being used to destroy all aspects of existing society all around the world—but people are starting to wake up, stand up, and push back. Movements like The Global Walkout aim to unite humanity against the globalist agenda. While it’s disturbing to consider how close they are to winning, it is exciting to see that the spirit of humanity—the spirit of freedom—is rising to the challenge.
But there’s a lot of work to be done.
Can We the People still win?
Can we defeat the collective cabal? Yes, we can and we must—but we need effective strategies to do so. If they can win without firing a shot, they will do so. If they can break our will to resist, they will do so. If they can trick and deceive us into conceding or forfeiting our sovereignty and freedom, they will do so. If they can rig our elections, buy-off the vote, trample our rights, steal our money, and destroy our constitution, they will do so—and this effort is well under way.
We are in fact under attack and our greatest chance to battle back is by reclaiming the reigns from our runaway government this midterm election cycle—though it’s going to take a damn good strategy to pull it off—and that’s where the Art of War once again offers wisdom:
“The opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy itself; ability to defeat the enemy means taking the offensive.”
And I want to talk about exactly how we do that, but that will have to be tomorrow…
