We are like the Jesuit order. We attempt to teach and train soldiers
to think. . . . We read Christopher Alexander (can you imagine?).
We read John Forester, and other architects. We are reading
Gregory Bateson, we are reading Clifford Geertz. Not just myself,
but our soldiers, our generals are reflecting on these kinds of
materials. We have established a school and developed a curriculum
that trains “operational architects”. – – Shimon Naveh
