What about all the new warriors?

Sun Tzu

Country of origin aside.

Do many think about some of the people around our ranks right now that may have had interests in the Arts, but who, if not for the war, may not have given it much more real thought?

Has anyone noticed?

Are there a greater number of practitioners than the last “Say, ten years?”

If so, is there a higher number of prior or current servicemen or women?
I’m not meaning the regular amounts of law enforcement, military, and security personnel found in the arts, but rather those who found themselves in the war, that may not have normally sought out formal training prior to their enlistments and subsequent deployments.

I guess my questions go something like this.
(And please, Social, not Political right now.)

1. With the simple numbers involved, as a world, in every society, there are a growing number of trained, skilled, experienced, individuals who have lived as warriors.
And, what will “Modern Times” make different here?

Traditionally, warriors trained for years to “One day do battle.”

Now, there are many, bringing knowledge of “Sun Tzu” home with them.

Group of unknown soldiers.

Treat your men as you would your own beloved sons. And they will follow you into the deepest valley.

He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot will be victorious.

For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.

“The Art of War”
