  • Wise as Serpents, Innocent as Doves

    At the same time, we will be minimizing our own exposure to spiritual and material threats. 6GW [6th Generation Warfare] requires intelligence and situational awareness. You can’t fight very effectively if you’re locked up in prison or dead. As Christ advised to his disciples, we must be “as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves” in order to operate within our hostile environment. If a given operation is exposed to too much threat, we must “shake the dust from our feet” and move on to the next one. Our techniques are low-cost by default, and that includes sunk costs. That doesn’t mean that we can’t ever sacrifice ourselves, but never unintelligently or rashly. The goal is to keep fighting for as long and as well as we can, damaging those hinges with the highest availability when the opportunity presents itself.
