[progdltp] War is strange

Because peace is Pareto superior to war, it is surprising that war occurs.

It could be occurring because of incompetence (and probably is, according to the adage), or because of malice.  The latter suggests the most profound conspiracy theory: every war, after a point in history in which communication and observation technologies have developed enough, is the result of manipulation of a secretive third party who is benefitting from the unrest caused by the war.
