Sun Tzu: How to win against Donald Trump and the forces he represents

Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.

If your opponent is of choleric temper, irritate him.

He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.

Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.

He will win whose army is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks.

In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.

Avoid what is strong. Strike what is weak.

 


From The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

Sun Tzu was a sixth century BC Chinese general, military strategist, and philosopher who is credited as the author of The Art of War, a widely influential work of military strategy that has affected both Western and Eastern philosophy.
