Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1001 to 1500
~ Idea 1193 ~ 16 October 1997
Napoleon thought that he was very smart when he decided that his militaries should not be educated and trained in Universities and created military academies where they would be taught a science of war, a strategy of war and a methodology of war. The German general Clausewitz in the 19th century thought that he was smart to proclaim as a guideline for the militaries that "there was no limit to the form and use of violence".

Well today the world should be happy that they had these wrong ideas, because as a result Universities do not have any military programs, at a time when wars, armaments and militarism are becoming obsolete, and the militaries are confined to their academies, on the defensive and facing year after year an increasing unpopularity and final extinction.

If you can just appreciate each thing,
one by one,
then you will have pure gratitude.

Even though you observe just one flower,
that one flower includes everything.
