The people at the scene were no fools. They immediately came to realize that Jagoan’s opinion made sense and felt enlightened.
Judging by the current situation, the manipulation of the clubs’ world had already been planted in the minds of people, so there was nothing they could do to stop it anymore.
Moreover, it was the information age and information traveled so quickly that it could be spread to every corner of the world within a second. It was different from the old days when information could be blocked.
Hence, it would be almost impossible for them to stop the situation from happening completely. It was also possible that trying to stop it would backfire and result in resistance from the people!
After figuring this out, they admired Jagoan even more. On the other hand, the top-level personnel who had been displeased with Jagoan initially felt guilty after realizing that they had misunderstood him.
However, someone soon discovered a crucial aspect.
“Sergeant Larson, your statement makes a lot of sense and is constructive, but have you considered the problem at hand?”
“If we were to allow the situation to progress, the scale will tip toward the clubs’ world. If it were to go beyond the level that we can withstand and we can’t choke it anymore, what would we do?”
Yes, it was a fair point worthy of consideration.
Even though diverting was better than blocking, allowing the situation to progress would mean it would worsen over time.
When it reached the point that the country’s force could not stop it anymore, what else could they do?
Would they just allow all mankind to fight until the survival of the fittest and constantly depleting the resources lead to an apocalypse?
However, Jagoan seemed to have thought about the problem from the start, and his expression remained unchanged. On the contrary, he chuckled and said, “That won’t happen.”
Paxton was astonished to hear Jagoan’s remark, he asked, “Oh? What do you mean? Please elaborate, Jagoan.”
“If we were to do so, firstly, it would help to desensitize the clubs’ world. Secondly, it will help the ordinary people not too interested in martial arts training gradually realize the hardship of all people learning martial arts.”
“After that, these ordinary people will join us. Other than that, we can also greatly slow down the pace of the clubs’ attacks on the common people!”
Everyone became even more confused upon hearing Jagoan’s remark. How would the pace of the clubs’ attacks on the common people be reduced?
Should they not be assuming that the clubs would attack even more?
However, it was apparent that Jagoan had figured out the crux of the matter.
He said nonchalantly, “It’s a simple principle. If we were to go against the clubs now, the common people will be forced to choose between two sides.”
“If that’s the case, the clubs will certainly kill those who resist constantly in View of their ruthlessness. Moreover, the clubs will use ordinary people yearning to learn martial arts to take out the others.”
“If that happens, the clubs will get what they want. That’s why we can’t do that! Since the clubs have already made a move and it’s an open conspiracy, we shall beat them at their own game.”
He paused for a moment, and then his eyes glistened as he said, “We’ll wait until the majority of commoners have focused on studying martial arts.”
“If that’s the case, the fatalities can be reduced and at the same time, we can keep the battlefield between powerhouses. That way, the powerhouses from the clubs will fight against the powerhouses from the common world!”
“On the other hand, when we defeat the powerhouses of the club, the pressure on the ordinary people will be resolved without effort,” Jagoan said with a smile.
Antony smacked his thigh and said in an excited tone, “That’s ingenious. Hah-hah-hah, Sergeant Larson lives up to his reputation of not only being an extraordinary martial artist.”
“His intelligence is also countless times higher than ordinary people. That’s why he got to the crux of the matter so fast.”
The rest of the people smiled when they came to understand it.
