Watching a U.S. produced documentary about WW2…
“When a truck runs out of gas, you bring up more gas. When a horse runs out of food, it dies.”
This is clearly the viewpoint of a nation that believed that gasoline would always be available and with sufficient vehicles to transport it.
The counter argument: When a horse runs out of supplied food it will find and eat alternatives. A horse will continue to work at reduced efficiency. A truck will simply stop.
As we know, the factory eventually overcame the farmer, but the logic is false.
