  3. Hello, Chet.

    Have you ever played the board game Go?

    I was watching a Patterns of Conflict recording on YouTube, and it almost sounds like John Boyd is talking about Go strategy when discussing Sun Tzu.

    John Boyd and Sun Tzu playing Go would actually be a cool DeviantArt drawing if people who could draw were into military strategists.

    • Very astute observation. Although I never heard John mention Go, the parallels are quite deep. I wrote on Go in my last book, If We Can Keep It, starting on p. 107. What got me on to this was David Lai’s paper, “Learning from the Stones,” available at Would be interesting to know how well the CCP is sticking to this strategy rather than a tit-for-tat approach (e.g., your tariff, my tariff) that’s more like chess.
