Dividends are benefits gathered while meeting the requirements of the goal. If the requirement of preventing a war were to have the biggest stockpile of weapons, then I’d say making money would be a dividend. But if making money only happens if the war happens, and thus failure has occurred, then making money is the result of failing to achieve the goal and thus is a consequence.
Look at it logistically rather than emotionally. The information just is what it is. Emotionally, making money might be a wonderful consequence to failing to prevent war and might even be a consequence worth giving up the goal for. Or it might be a horrible symbol of all the blood that will be on ones hands for providing munitions. Either way it’s still the result of failing to prevent the war in Mikes’s example.
