Only the Dull and Stupid Fight Head-on: Some Strategic Thoughts (Robert Greene)

Edited on Tue Nov-24-09 10:08 AM by LoZoccolo
Been seeing a lot of posts lately advocating militant tactics. Usually that decision to ramp things up and get in peoples' faces doesn't make a difference and allows them to fight according to a strategy they chose; why would you allow them to fight acccording to plan?

People who know strategy know that your first instincts can be the most likely to make you fail.
