Warriors are cheap because testosterone is cheap. Warfare is expensive. High Art – Monuments, culture, arts – are the result of conquest. So stop wasting my time. Ok? Culture is the result of wealth made possible by the organized application of violence to construct means of production that provide superior technological and logistical advantage.
So please. masturbate somewhere else. ok? I am thrilled to keep the teenagers happy, and individual excellence is an exceptional resource. But if you can’t accumulate numbers necessary for warfare you’re just jerking off. You aren’t a warrior you’re a dilatant.
Wars are won by technology and supply lines. And technology costs.
Why? The marginal difference between individuals with weapons is far more a factor of exhaustion than it is of ability. War is a game of errors, not excellences.
