Have you seen a child playing chess that is literally shaking with fear? What happens when he is subjected again and again to these stressors? What happens when he is insufficiently prepared or trained and sent to fight Goliath? What happens to a community that experiences failure after failure with no respite and no solution in sight?
Here. Is there any relevance? What do you think?
If it is true, can chess be used to develop strong thinkers instead? What would that look like?
