      I think what The Art of War tells is very smart, which is that you can calculate up the wazoo, but human beings are fundamentally unpredictable. The only way that you can really predict what people will do is if you’re in a trusting relationship. How you scale that up is one of the primary issues in The Art of War. We were thinking the whole time of how often the text points to the psychological. How much is really predictable? That so much is unpredictable is the chief reason not to go to war.
