Trump’s Brilliant Response to Iran Explained
You’ve heard of the Prisoner’s Dilemma. It’s a game of cooperation and betrayal between two people where each party must choose how to treat the other in an exchange. The available choices are to share, to give, or to steal. No one knows what the other party will do until after both decisions are locked in. Whether or not any given move will pay off depends on what the other person does.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting. In the 1970s, the prisoner’s dilemma was played out in massive competitions. Contestants created simple computer algorithms that played the game for them over many successive sessions. It was discovered that the best algorithm, the one that took gains in the largest amount of sessions reliably, would always start the session fairly — but after that, it would treat other players exactly as it had been treated by them in every single instance.
The lesson here is that in our relations with others, we should always treat them with fairness and with grace in the first instance. After that, you treat them how they have treated you. There’s an old term for it, it’s called an eye for an eye. It could also be described as ‘love your neighbor as you love yourself’- or ‘love your neighbor while you love yourself.’
This optimal approach to the prisoner’s dilemma also describes President Trump’s foreign policy, and if the corrupt Washington Left will shut their fat gobs for a while, the whole nation would benefit.
