Gods and Generals: The Imjin War and the Rise of Admiral Yi Sun-sin

In true fashion of the Ruler's Dilemma, once achieving the unification of Japan, Toyotomi Hideyoshi needed more resources to satiate the warriors that maintained his seat of power, hence the invasion of Korea.

This Kings and Generals animated historical documentary covers the Imjin War, the 1592-1598 Japanese invasion of Korea, battles of Hansando, Imjin River, Sacheon and Okpo, as well as the rise of Korean admiral Yi Sun-Sin.

The admiral's naval prowess and armored turtle ships changed the course of the war against the proud samurai and the daimyo leaders, leading to a quagmire and an ultimately failed campaign.

In true fashion of the Ruler's Dilemma, once achieving the unification of Japan, Toyotomi Hideyoshi needed more resources to satiate the warriors that maintained his seat of power, hence the invasion of Korea. In the quest to control more resources political actors must dominate more land and capital to redistribute and buy support. When a monopoly ruler runs out of resources at home, unless blocked by an external hegemon, they inevitably go abroad.

Conquest, at home and abroad, is the inevitable result of tolerating a monopoly on violence. This is why the whole body of a people, trained to arms and organized to execute the law is necessary to the security of a free state. An armed equilibrium diffuses political power and denies monopoly political authority from arising. This is the true meaning of the Second Amendment as being necessary to the security of a free state, and one that does not go abroad in search of monsters to slay.

In other words, everyone must be samurai, every day, and the use of force, in service to security and justice, cannot be left under the purview of an exclusive caste.
