70

December 27, 2009

How a conflict begins, is waged, and ends depends on whether Knights or Gardeners command and control it. Knights undertake conflict to vanquish an evil; Gardeners undertake conflict to preserve a Garden.

When Knights control the persecution of a conflict, they ask Gardeners to lend their ingenuity to aid the war effort, as they did with the scientists who undertook the Manhattan Project during World War II. When Gardeners control the persecution of a conflict, they ask Knights to only defend the Garden, not completely vanquish evil, as they did when they established the Cold War foreign policy of “Containment” to curb Soviet expansion.

Religious Knights see Gardens as aids to winning the Great Cosmic War.

Religious Gardeners see conflicts as subsets or interruptions in the growth of the Great Garden.
