<p>The way people were handled and manipulated by Nazis and the Stalin regime
have many similarities with the treatment of livestock. The similarities are
not only between slaughterhouses and the extermination camps, but also the way
the victims were manipulated before reaching the kill zone. One of the ideas
presented by the George_PĆ³lya at his 1945 book,&nbsp;<a href="./ainfo/4b12eb60608c6d08">"How
to Solve it"</a>, is that one of the thing to try, when looking for a solution
to an unsolved problem, is to look for problems that are similar to the
unsolved problem, <b>look for an analogies</b>, and then try to fit the
solutions of the analogous solved problems to fit the problem that is to be
solved. Mass murders, extermination camps, are very similar to slaughterhouses.&nbsp;</p>


<h1>The Problem to Solve</h1>

<p>Defining the problem is a difficult task in its own right. The most simplest
approximation might be: <b>how to escape an extermination camp.</b> A slightly
more nuanced problem to solve might be: <b>how to avoid that part of the
prison, from where there is no escape.</b>&nbsp;An even more nuanced problem to
solve might be: <b>how to be useless for the exterminators and avoid being
"collateral damage" for exterminators, who do not care to be economically
rational.</b> May be the problem to solve is: <b>how to exterminate the
extermination camp owners, without having any collateral damage.</b>&nbsp;May
be in stead of a single problem there is a group of problems, like, <b>how to
avoid being captured and how to destroy extermination camps.</b> &nbsp;May be
in stead of a single group of independent problems, there are multiple sets of
problems that depend on each other within their respective sets of problems.&nbsp;</p>


<p>The thing to keep in mind, when defining a problem, is that <b>objective
functions depend on the culture of the person, who defines the objective
function.</b> If the objective function is defined, then the <b>questions for
looking for a way, how to drive the output of the objective function, also
depend on the culture of the person, who asks the questions.</b> Supposedly
that's the reason, why the American CIA failed to predict the collapse of the
Soviet Union. <i>(May be the CIA "failed" to predict it, because they were
afraid to loose their jobs that were mainly about spying after the Soviet
Union. Their counterpart, the KGB, had the problem that agents reported crap
data just to look more useful and tell their bosses more, what the bosses
wanted to hear.)</i></p>


<p>One possible approach is to look for analogies from games like chess. In
chess <b>it does not matter, what the other player thinks</b>&nbsp;and desires.
<b>The only thing that matters is, WHAT IS TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE for an
adversary to do</b>&nbsp;and the subjective, culture based, part is, how to
calculate the damages that the adversary can induce and what kind of
prioritization algorithm one uses to minimize the damages. The prioritization
algorithm of the defending side can use data about the technical capabilities
of the defending side.</p>
