Quote"...Chinese researchers have suggested that submariners, as many as one in five, show serious psychological disorders. This is especially prevalent among younger crew members with less time in service. This is significantly higher than the average soldier in the Chinese army ..."
Quote"...the culture of the military often prohibits independent and local decision making. They often refer decision making to higher units. One analyst summarized that "'some' officers cannot judge situations, understand higher authorities' intentions, make operational decisions, deploy troops, nor deal with unexpected situations."
Quote"Studying the fate of the King Tiger and the vaunted 6th Panzer army of General Pieper provides a nice parable about Chinese technology. I read an article seemingly every week about some new and scary Chinese technology ranging from killer drone swarms to hyper-sonic carriers and artificial intelligence. But like the Tiger Tank from Germany, the technologies themselves do not win wars. They are used by soldiers with varying degrees of morale and training, in concert with other weapon systems, during the chaos and fog of war, in pursuit of what could be a failed or faulty strategy.The tanks of the German army along with their advanced technology (like rockets) failed to turn the tide of the war. There is a good chance that the army of the Chinese empire has no clothes, and they will similarly fail to win future wars with their whiz-bang wonder machines."

Quote from: Hoofer on February 21, 2021, 06:43:14 AMExcellent observation.And the same could be implied in the 2nd or 3rd generation of family ownership, businesses usually fail.The kids don't grasp the vision Dad had. I fear what's really going to destroy America is things like the 15 dollar-per-hour minimum wage (and stupid, anti-business regulations) which has all the potential prevent smart idea-minded people from seeing their dreams come true!
