The age of the empire of influence

March 25, 2014

The great Prussian military strategist Carl von Clausewitz once famously remarked that "War is the continuation of Politik by other means." We now stand at a point in our history when it might be better to consider that war is, in reality, the course of action that is pursued when diplomacy fails. War, in my opinion, should not be considered as a simple extension of policy from the realm of diplomacy into the realm of armed conflict. This view is folly. War is what happens when Politik has ended and been discarded and is not something to be taken lightly or considered in theoretical contexts.
