Discipline and Strategy

I have had trouble explaining that the discipline you now adhere to made it hard for me to discuss the General Strategy points I make here.

You are supposed to stick strictly to the points that hit the enemy, not deviating at all from the Mantra if possible. Yet at the very same time you must be prepared to recognize the strategy you must follow as our discipline gets its results, how to make sure we get our revolution and that you get your part in it.

As is so often the case, when I am totally puzzled it turns out that I am just complicating a basic truth.

The fact is that this problem of discipline and strategy is as old as western warfare.

Before armies adopted personal discipline, there was very little strategy.

Before legions and formations, the only thing a general did was try to trick the enemy on a gross level. There was no strategy as we now use the words, moving a column here and holding units in reserve there. The whole Oriental host got as many warriors as it could and charged.

In other words there was no general fighting strategy until the individual soldiers became rigidly parts of a disciplined war machine.
In exactly the same way, the vague dreams of other pro-whites of a torchlight parade When The Enemy Is Exposed do not lend themselves to thought about what changes to look for and what to do when they happen. Everybody will suddenly join together and hang the bastards.

The idea is delicious but not practical. As with the Roman Legions, the development of real discipline in the ranks makes strategy more essential than ever.

As often happens, what has been so confusing to me all this time is actually embarrassingly simple. I do not need to keep reminding you to maintain discipline when you are at the front.

But I do need to discuss strategy. In fact, as I said, only disciplined soldiers can carry out a strategy. Unlike our News and Jews brethren, I need to discuss with you what changes to look for, how to respond. I have said many, any times that Mussolini almost missed the March on Rome he himself had caused. He had called for a March on Rome but was not prepared for it to happen.

When disciplined armies first began to rout their enemies, they often broke ranks and pillaged and were destroyed. Their officers had to be trained not only in how to win but what to do when they defeated the enemy.

Maintain discipline on the front and help me plan strategy here. This apparent contradiction is actually a historical basic.
