ACTIVISM, Resources Unlimited [OP]

Resources Unlimited hosted Dialogues in Democracy tonight. It included Spoken Word Performances.

I chose this passage from The Art of War by Sun-tzu, translated by Ralph D. Sawyer.
If you expose the army to a prolonged campaign, the state's resources will be inadequate.

When the weapons have grown dull and spirits depressed, when our strength has been expended and resouces consumed, then the feudal lords will take advantage of our exhaustion to arise. Even though you have wise generals, they will not be able to achieve a good result.

Thus in military campaigns I have head of awkward speed but have never seen any skill in lengthy campaigns. No country has ever profited from protracted warfare.
