"In strategy the longest way round
is often the shortest way there;
a direct approach to the object
exhausts the attacker and
hardens the resistance by compression,
whereas an indirect approach
loosens the defender's hold
by upsetting his balance."
by:
B. H. Liddell Hart
(1895-1970) British military historian and strategist

Reader comments about this quote:
Kind of like the frog's heating pot. I took a long time for socialism grow through the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's ecclesiastical seminaries (government schools). How long and by what indirect approaches did it take for patrons of the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto to peddler their ANTI-liberty / ANTI-inalienable right(s) / ANTI-nobility of man standard as a moniker of honor?
