New Book on Jesus, Diocletian, 4GW, and COIN

D.M. was kind enough to join the hype-cycle for my new book, which will soon be followed on by a published version of the “John Boyd Roundtable,” edited by Mark Safranski of ZenPundit fame.

Revolutionary Strategies in Early Christianity

I wrote Revolutionary Strategies in Early Christianity: 4th Generation Warfare (4GW) Against the Roman Empire, and the Counterinsurgency (COIN) Campaign to Save It to help explain the persecution experienced by the early Christians in light of strategic theory. I believe that Romans, who martyred so many Christians, were not foolish or stupid. I think they knew what they were doing: they understood that if the Christianity triumphed, the world they knew and loved would be turned upside down.

The Romans acted according to the same basic rules that guided the Nazi fight against la Résistance in France… and the American fight against al Qaeda in Iraq.

I hope my book will be useful to those who want to begin learning about modern strategy, and for people who wish to know a little more about the rise of Christianity. From Joseph Caiaphas to the Prophet Muhammed, I describe the early enemies of Christianity as wise fighters who used strategies that now have buzzwords for names (COIN, xGW, and so on), but whose use goes back to the dawn of time.

Sexual Predator Convicted of Involuntary Manslaughter

Of course, this is better than merely letting the predator go free, but the charge implies a lack of intent, that the killing did not take place during the commission of a felony, and that it was not a crime of a sexual nature.

Cry of Rape Lands Cheating Wife in Jail – AOL News
FORT WORTH, Texas (May 3) – A Texas woman who caused her lover’s shooting death by falsely crying rape was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter.

Tracy Denise Roberson, 37, cried a bit when the verdict was announced. The punishment phase was set for Monday, and she faces two to 20 years in prison.

(Thanks to Adam of The Metropolis Times for emailing me this news.)

This blog has previously discussed sexual predators who never served a day, served only one day, and served only 365 days.

Until sexual predators face long prison sentences and are placed on a list so that locals can avoid contact with them once they are released, the justice system is mutely encouraging their behavior. Too bad.
