well that's an interesting question
first, i'd back the enemy of a competitor, socially, politically and financially, but do so
then, i'd back the competitor, publically and financially to go to war with its enemy and then i'd
stage a campaign to make the competitor look like a homicidal maniac so i could
count on its enemy gleaning sympathy for the actions of the competitor, globally.
then i'd raise up a war against the competitor, by backing any groups or orgs or
countries that were willing to go up against it, thus eradicating my competitor so
i can steal all his wealth. and i would do this as many times as necessary till i owned
everything and everyone.
but, before i started, i'd have to be sure to do this in the right order. it's easy to make
fanatics look wacko and much harder to make moderates look wacko.
so if my competitor was moderate, i'd have to take him out first, cause he'd be the
biggest threat to my conquest. and i'd do this by backing the enemy privately, secretly,
behind the scenes so that my name wasn't associated with him and on the pretense
that my competitor needed to be removed because he was evil. the fanatic
would approve of this because he wants to be rid of evil, especially if evil can be defined
by variations in religious/non-religious or financial positions. this would be a case of the enemy
of my competitor is my friend. but this is only a temporary condition.
then once my competitor was gone, i'd make the enemy of my competitor my new enemy by
raising up groups and orgs and countries, willing to wipe out my new enemy for being wacko.
this is the easy part.
when the dust cleared, i'd be like smaug the dragon, sitting on my piles of gold and king of the
