It's not whether you win or lose?

I have no complaints about being misrepresented as to my playing style on Civ II. Having said that, I would hope that if I was ever in control of a real kingdom I wouldn't behave quite like this...

Unless the game is one where the main point is to take part/have fun (like the Caucus(?) race in Alice in Wonderland) I do like winning - probably the legacy of playing lots of chess when I was younger.

I recall a comment in Pratchett's 'Jingo' by one of the Klatchians about the Ankh-Morpork war leader who has a similar philosophy to yours: "And knowing this, his men still follow him?" :
