Great article.

Very few ideas are novel. Even fewer doctrines, tactics or anything in the military is truly innovative. But, it doesn't have to be. In many respects the last 20 years of technological development has skewed the perceptions of what is and is not 'a good idea'. It must be dozens of office Fitness Reports I've seen that used the term 'paradigm breaking'. Where as none of the officers' work really was. But, the only thing that seems good any more to most military minds is something so game changing so 'paradigm breaking' that is pretty much is impossible, or the true effects are blown out of proportion (DDG-1000, LCS, FCS, any major military procurement).
