Levy noted several other ways by which the baleful effect of rigid plans was aggravated by other factors. Beliefs about the nature of the conflict – that the offense had a big advantage over the defense; that a time lag in mobilization could be disastrous; that initial mobilization could be conducted in secret; that war was inevitable, that the worst case analysis should govern military decisions, that the damage to prestige incurred by backing down after mobilizing would be unacceptably expensive – all fed the desire to use force.

Any set of strategies that yield payoffs to players that surpass those obtained under complete defection is ‘supported’, that is, can persist indefinitely under given conditions. Thus, as the authors note, the ‘strong functionalist thesis that the outcomes are Pareto optimal does not hold’. Such a situation is one of multiple equilibria, and within the confines of game theory, there is no obvious way to select a unique equilibrium. However, another mechanism identified by Bendor and Swistak offers a basis for believing that more deeply cooperative strategy sets will, in the long run, prevail: more efficient (that is, more cooperative) strategies require smaller frequencies in the population in order to stabilize in a group.
