Circumstance and Warfare

The father of modern strategic study, Carl von Clausewitz, defined military strategy as "the employment of battles to gain the end of war." Hence, he gave the preeminence to political aims over military goals, ensuring civilian control of the military. Of course, this applies also to the software development where any IT problem is human in its very core.

However as someone said, I’m fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in. That’s why I think that’s a failure to choose a war from an armchair, to provide a solution seeking its need. The shortest path to delusion is theory without practice. And a bad usage of your thoughts and ideas will have as consequence a misuse of reality. That’s why for us, the community is crucial because, as someone else said, battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates.>
