Review of Sun Tzu’s Art of War
- Do not attack an enemy who is attacking from a high place in a low place.
- Do not attack an enemy on a high hill.
- Do not attack an enemy whose morale is high.
- Do not oppress an enemy in distress.
- Do not pursue the enemy as he retreats to his homeland.
- Once you have surrounded the enemy, be sure to leave an escape route open.
- Do not pursue enemy decoys.
- Do not accept provocations disguised as retreats.
- If you are going to garrison troops, a high place is preferable. Low ground is undesirable.
- When moving troops, check the surroundings frequently from a high place. It is important to maintain a clear field of vision.
Donut Army Winner
- The donut army took up high ground. (They were in Sanchi, but were not immediately defeated).
- The ants attacked the enemy on high hills or challenged them while climbing to higher ground. (Cause of defeat).
- Ali deliberately woke up sleeping enemy soldiers. (Serious mistake).
- The donut army aimed for high ground instead of low ground and encamped on high ground.
- The donut army succeeded in securing its field of view by garrisoning in a high place.
- Considering the fact that they are in Sanchi, they are focusing on driving out the enemy rather than defeating them.
- The ant army is overwhelming the enemy in a small area.
- The donut army is not pursuing the enemy who is retreating back to their homeland.
- The ant army has no concept of dismounting as soon as it receives a small amount of prey.
Sanchi is a proper noun from Sun Tzu’s Art of War. In plain English, it means a defensive battle in one’s own country. It is called Sanchi because it distracts the soldiers.
Sanchi is a very unfavorable place to fight. Soldiers cannot concentrate on fighting because their families are nearby and they are worried about their families.
Furthermore, there is little to be gained by winning this battle, and the more they fight, the more their hometown is destroyed, making it easy for morale to drop.
If you must fight, make it your goal to drive the enemy out as soon as possible. (Sun Tzu’s Art of War)
A complex battlefield called the kitchen
To us humans, it is an ordinary place. But from the perspective of donuts and ants, it is a completely different landscape.
The low space of the floor, surrounded by high places, is like a high mountain.
Stoves, cookware, dishwashers, sinks. These are like the traps provided.
This space must be too big for the ants.
The donut army in their own country knows in advance what is there and where the dangerous places are.
On the other hand, the ants that happened to enter the area were not familiar with the geography and simply moved vertically to reach their prey.
This is a video made for children.
Well, well, well, that’s an interesting video.
I don’t care about that, I want to eat potato chips.
Also, I don’t understand English.
Oi! Stupid frog!
What have you been doing for 40 years?
A little study of Sun Tzu’s Art of War can change the way you look at a video so much. Even though the video is aimed at children, the strategy makes good sense. Because it is for children, there is no violence or abusive language. Not a drop of blood or tears, no deaths or injuries.
