This is the key observation. We expend a disproportionate amount of effort
keeping units on 'life support'.
I also sit on the District Committee and meeting after meeting, month after
month, it seems like we spend 90% of our energies trying to keep alive
marginal units. (Most of whom die anyway.)
I would rather see half as many units with super programs that to nurse
along the living dead. Think how much we would gain if we just let the
marginal units die. If we were able to take that 'wasted' effort and focus
on building 'super' troops, the headcount would naturally rise just because
of the better programming.
