Randomness as a defense

The fact that randomness is actually a better tactic in some military actions has been brewing in my head and the association with analyzing attractors and it is clearer now. What a military planner wants is control achieved by force and the ability to predict the behavior of a system gives you control if you are able to modify it to achieve a desired goal. The entire process depends on the ability to predict the result of actions and if a randomness is introduced, the system become too complex at a single point and thus an enemy cannot predict the outcome of that situation and must wait until the action evolves to a point where actions are no longer random.

The ultimate goal of control does not require the use of force in the extreme and the better the ability to measure and predict, the less energy is required to alter the outcome in a manner that is favorable. I suppose the principle is true from the point of advertising to propaganda to full out war. It seems that the act of war is merely a last ditch effort to achieve dominance when cooperation and persuasion can lead to a quicker resolution that is less destructive in cases where you are dealing with sensible individuals.

The concept of extension of "control" is where I personally have difference with the method. By accepting the principle of dominant ethic, a person has established themselves as god, in a sense, as they have reasoned, wrongly, that they are the highest state of the universe. It is easy to see that reason is twisted by desire and nature to rationalize dominance for survival and procreation, however, the act of accepting that which is illogical as logical would seem to prove that the prime assumption of absolute perfection is false.
