Rethinking the Traditional Teacher-Student Relationship in Conflicts

I woke up to a post from Bruce Ivar Gudmundsson that lead me to this important piece The Ignorant Counterinsurgent: Rethinking the Traditional Teacher-Student Relationship in Conflicts by Maj.

PODCAST: Tactical Decision Games with Bruce Gudmundsson and Don Vandergriff

"Certainty, risk, and uncertainty. In everyday language, we make a distinction between “certainty” and “risk,” but the terms “risk” and “uncertainty” are mostly used as synonyms. They aren’t.

In an uncertain world, not everything is known, and one cannot calculate the best option. Here, good rules of thumb and intuition are also required." ~Gerd Gigerenzer, Risk Savy
