Mutually Assured Destruction
Imagine two cars speeding towards each other on a collision course. The drivers know that a crash would be catastrophic for both of them, but neither wants to be the one to swerve first. This is a classic game of chicken, where the stakes are high and the consequences severe. In the world of war and military strategy, this game is played on a much larger scale, and it’s called Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD).
