COMPLETE TEXT: THE ART OF EXPLOITATION ©2020

"The Art of Exploitation"
The art of war is not a way of annihilation –
But of exploitation.
The intent should not be to destroy a nation,
its army, or its people.
 
This is counter to The Way.
 
What is the advantage in vanquishing
a great adversary –
Simply to rule over rubble?
 
What is the purpose of shattering a country –
when it can be acquired whole and intact?
Why decimate a well-trained army –
when they can strengthen your own forces?
Why disposition a population toward rebellion –
when they can share in the expansion
of the homeland?
 
Therefore,
show respect to your enemy.
Treat prisoners of war fairly.
Do not show cruelty to the conquered.
 
In that way they have less reason to resist –
How does one resist kindness?
They will support the greatness of victory,
if given a path to opportunity.
