Kindred’s Kaleidoscope: Zugzwang

In all the years of having seen depicted on the airwaves or in the press by journalists, political and military leaders and writers one term defies mention so far as I can recall.  Is this merely an oversight or is there some element to the very word discussed here as being completely new to the realm of national and international intrigues.

We can all find terms used to discribe current events, words to describe and emphasize the points being made–stalement, check, ploy, gambit, strategic plan, stratagem, checkmate, chess game, or battle of wits, swindle, blunder, errors, mistakes, miscues. But one word that is missing from all these is ZUGZWANG. Nowhere have I seen this term used by the parties mentioned.

ZUGZWANG is a term given to a chess position where any move played in the position loses at least the balance wherein the adversary will benefit usually with a full point as the result.

What circumstance might arise on the scene in life that might suggest this term to be applicable? It is a question I do not relish an answer for but most recent events in the Iranian affair with NUKES being an issue might give rise to such a term especially regarding the complexity of what and how Israel’s leaders weigh in.

The 21st Century is here and it is a time of dangerous games being played out on the field having many mountains and valleys. Such conditions can lead to such a term as ZUGZWANG!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

      Hi! You should develop your imagination in creating articles of your own. There are many things happening all around us that I feature in my own blog articles. They all emerge from my own thoughts and imaginative brain power that I am sure you have too. Part of the trouble I find in writing these essays is that so many believe I simply download articles that I read. I wouldn’t waste my time if that were the case to have my blog which takes a good part of my free time. Zugzwang is just one example. Over time I have used all of the terms in columns and afterwards started seeing these politicians and news media folks using my language more and more. I do not say I am responsible but not long after my article on Zugzwang appeared, I found it mentioned on the interviews on TV. It is not a term that hopefully ever finds reality in the real world outside of chess. That would leave little room for real debate and maneuvering by our leaders./Don.
