When is the Dissuasion Power the Key to Win Confrontations?

Confrontations can only be won avoiding “battles” if there is a notorious technological supremacy. As Sun Tzu said, “Battles are won or lost before they are fought.

The purpose of a confrontation is to impose someone’s authority upon others. This can happen in any field (military, economic, personal, emotional, etc.).

The Dissuasion Power is given by the capacity to expand without needing to confront. But the capacity to develop the dissuasion power depends on the technological supremacy.

The one who imposes a standard, a culture, values or duties is the one who rules and implicitly is the one who won a confrontation. The active function of confronting is eluding confrontations in order to avoid paying the prices of an explicit conflict. *

The capacity to defend the vital space is what provides a minimum strategy to the confrontation context.

Paradoxically, the maximal strategy of any confrontation is not to confront, and this can only happen when the technological supremacy is accepted and feared and therefore the dissuasion capacity is extreme. When this is not the case, not confronting is not a winning strategy, it is just not competing.
