Re: Political self-obsession and onanism

Machiavelli was writing just when Venice was losing its power. But I wasn't being entirely serious citing an example that's almost a thousand years old.

"Irregardless, you've misunderestimated how different it is to fight and die compared to fight and kill."

Not at all. You've overestimated, by a huge margin, the ratio of people in the military who actually do any fighting to those supporting the frontline troops logistically. You can outsource support roles.
