Re: Imperial Wisdom

It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious.

There is no such thing as a "cheap shot," but rather a preemptive strike.

Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

Re: Imperial Wisdom

"For every problem a solution must be found. It is the commander's duty to see that the objectives of the mission are obtained. He is personally responsible should the mission fail. If the objective is of importance, he is to succeed regardless of the method needed to obtain success. It is the commander's duty to see that success is obtained in accordance with the directives of the New Order."

–First axiom from Surface Operation Training Document 89, Officer's Section.

Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive. And don't ever apologize for anything.

It has always been the prerogative of children and half-wits to point out that the emperor has no clothes. But the half-wit remains a half-wit, and the emperor remains an emperor.

Re: Imperial Wisdom

Ultimately, leadership requires action: daring to take steps that are necessary but unpopular, challenging the status quo in order to reach a brighter future. And to push for peace is ultimately personal sacrifice, for leadership is not easy. It is born of a passion, and it is a commitment. Leadership is a commitment to an idea, to a dream, and to a vision of what can be.

Re: Imperial Wisdom

"From this arises the question whether it is better to be loved more than feared, or feared more than loved. The reply is, that one ought to be both feared and loved, but as it is difficult for the two to go together, it is much safer to be feared than loved, if one of the two has to be wanting. For it may be said of men in general that they are ungrateful, voluble, dissemblers, anxious to avoid danger, and covetous of gain; as long as you benefit them, they are entirely yours; they offer you their blood, their goods, their life, and their children, as I have before said, when the necessity is remote; but when it approaches, they revolt.

And the prince who has relied solely on their words, without making other preparations, is ruined; for the friendship which is gained by purchase and not through grandeur and nobility of spirit is bought but not secured, and at a pinch is not to be expended in your service. And men have less scruple in offending one who makes himself loved than one who makes himself feared; for love is held by a chain of obligation which, men being selfish, is broken whenever it serves their purpose; but fear is maintained by a dread of punishment which never fails."
