@thegibson There are some potential levellers of these risks.
Highly-organised, complex, and multi-party entities (states, businesses) can be strong but brittle, and be highly loss-averse.
Loosely-organised, simple, and collective entities (mobs, the public, irregular military forces) may be relatively weak, but resiliant against attack, and more able to face risks.
So David occasionally trumps Goliath.
Enhancements in ranged and automated attack systems makes that increasingly costly.
