The goal of the ultimate economy and the goal of the ultimate war is similar to the actual goal of sexual union: productivity. At least that would be God's take. God is very much not a sportsman.

However, since productivity creates prosperity, it seems that risk must be enhance3d in order to combat the stagnation within safety. Going whole hog on risk is very much akin to warfare. If nobody has any motive for wining and strategic advantage can be achieved without it, it is not really a war, it is the stagnation of the trenches.
Is riskless war possible? So far, such a thought can only be glimpsed at when one considers Jihadist warfare or Kamikaze capitalism, and productivity would have to be considered at the extremes of their plausibility.
