Chapter: Wagin War

2.8

Translation:

The skillful soldier does not raise a second levy, neither are his supply-wagons loaded more than twice.

Commentary

Taxes at home to pay for wars are not popular and not good for morale. It is better to find other ways.

Also, once war is declared, a strong army does not wait for reinforcements or supplies but uses surprise to quickly invade, creating momentum and gaining immediate ground.

In business, once you have secured a budget for marketing and sales, you should use that or find funds elsewhere, rather than going back, cap in hand.
