Other Things That Got The Axe

“All warfare is based on deception.”
Lionel Giles, M.A., Sun Tsŭ on The Art Of War: The Oldest Military Treatise in the World (translated). London 1910. Luzac&Co. (p. 6). (Public Domain).
Apparently, I would not be able to sell my book in Mexico with this quote, because it still enjoys copyright protection there but not in the US. So, it had to go. I actually read the Art of War, a different translation. I should say I suffered it as I'm a pacifist. The whole thing can be summed up by this quote. How to deceive and avoid being deceived, how to evaluate your opponent's capabilities, psychology, etc. Not a way to live. If I apply this main tenet of the book, however, knowing that warfare is based on deception is the first step in identifying that we the people might be subjects of psyops and field tests.
