‟If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles.”
Sun Tzu - 6th century BC Chinese military general
from his book,The Art of War.
Sun Tzu’s observation is timeless. Even in today's world, all serious athletes do film study to learn the weak points of their opponents. All modern military commanders study the enemy to learn how to best exploit their weaknesses. But just how does it apply to the common person caught in the middle of modern America's culture war?
There is a civil war going on in America right now. This one is not being fought with guns and bombs. Rather, it is raging in the arena of ideology. But that doesn't make it any less brutal. And the losers must live by the rules of the winners. The problem is, very few people have any idea what the competing beliefs actually are.
We see this as the news media often misrepresents the beliefs of those they cover. It is evident in the stereotypes politicians use to degrade their opponents. Worst of all, we see it in the conversations of common folks who try to express what they believe without understanding why they believe it. This book is a tool all Americans can use to grasp the real nature of this war.
