At 0:27 isn't the quote like this "The man who has NOTHING to lose is the most dangerous of all"?
Danny Rivers (9 months ago)
Hunter Killer I think what you're saying is very different. It's the threat of losing everything that makes them dangerous and you don't want to put the enemy in that state. Fighting for everything and failure meaning losing it all, is what makes them dangerous. Fighting to save your family and failure to win means they all die vs they're already dead. Those two different facts for the same person could have completely different outcomes. With a man's family already dead being victorious could easily not be the only thing this man is thinking. He could easily be thinking Maybe take out as many as I can on my way out since my family is unrecoverable. But a man's family alive and being victorious, as in saving your family staying alive yourself and victorious, is most likely his thought process. So more focused on staying alive means more focus on how to fight and not for die yourself. "The man with nothing to lose is the most unstable of them all". I think that's really how's yours should read. Sorry if that turned into rambling. Let me know what you think! Thanks.

This is similar to the Art of War. I would suggest you make videos on that to.

I think of the last statement as : Always give your enemies the APPEARANCE of a line of retreat ... even if it is not true ... and you plan to crush them completely. If you cannot convince them that they are winning , right up to the moment that you destroy them , then convince them that they have a viable means of escape ... and then destroy them piecemeal as they pursue it , rather than making a stubborn , costly , final stand against you .

I read this book when I was 12 and it shaped my life. I was confused for a long time, to who was the enemy, and did I really need to act this way? But I found balance, I read the book and I took in all the knowledge the it had to offer. And with this realization, I can live a much more fulfilling life, from being able to predict actions and emotions accordingly from my peers and enemies, to being able to regulate thought and emotion more logically, big picture, and to really be careful who I call friend and enemy. Edit: and pick and choose battles.

I wish I had discovered your videos earlier. I love your videos! They clarify so many topics and strategies that I try to use in everyday life. I am also a student of the "The Art of War" by Sun-Tzu and "The Prince" by Machiavelli. Do not apologize for accent. I can understand you quite well and it makes you unique.The accent also adds an authoritative quality to your videos like an old wise teacher giving advice to his pupils in a monastery or in ancient Greece.

Thank you for this video. It seems to me that warfare can occur in every situation. This principles can be apply, even in our personal life to achieve what we really want in life. I appreciate your work and I hope you will do more great work next time.

Even though Cortez was a villain I still love his achievement and consider him and the brave conquistadors a role model.
Siim Land (2 years ago)
But I've read the account of one of the conquistadors, Bernal Diaz, and the writings of de Las Casas as well. The conquistadors were simply out there to get gold and didn't shy away from anything to get it. Of course, the Aztec weren't innocent either. Human sacrifices, killing the Spanish, enslaving other tribes etc. etc. Playing by the rules of others doesn't mean that there isn't a better way of doing things :D
Siim Land (2 years ago)
Yes, good points.
illacertus (2 years ago)
I believe it was less than one million deaths. Either way, it seems like a monstrous massacre to us nowadays. It's a very interesting point of debate when you look at history. When historians paint a dark picture of, say, Alexander the Great for all the death that came with his actions, but then we also consider that different standards existed back then. He was playing the same game everybody else was playing. Is he the villain, because he was winning it? When we look at Aristotle, one of the most interesting philosophers, no doubt a wise man, but still in favor of slavery. History isn't black and white. That being said I share your empathetic sentiment.
Siim Land (2 years ago)
Because he paved his road to success with the death of millions of people. Of course, nothing is either good or bad, but still...
illacertus (2 years ago)
Although I agree, I'd like to know more about your thought on him being a villain. A villain by today's standards? Like an Adolf Hitler? Because he was responsible for the downfall of the Aztec empire?
