Victory Before War

Charts from Dr. David Leffler's interview on The Simplest Ways with host David Adelson

Can we end a war before we send our soldiers into a dangerous "hot spot?" Can it be possible to prevent the birth of an enemy before war becomes inevitable - or to end existing conflicts - through meditation? Sounds outrageous, but research shows a simple technology we need to consider. Dr. David Leffler, Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Military Science discusses Invincible Defense Technology which has been successfully applied by the military. He explains that if more militaries were to apply these non-destructive and non-lethal technologies, they could reduce collective societal stress and therefore, prevent war and terrorism. Below are the charts he refers to in his hour-long interview Victory Before War.
