I've been having a look at this hack, and this rendition of the idea of scale is quite interesting; the idea that at greater scales you're changing the rules of the game rather than just their scope.
It's obviously still a little vague in execution, of course. For example, what does it mean when the General can declare War on individuals and use War moves at the personal scale? Does it metaphorically mean he can Fortify his Position against the Courtier's political advances, or just literally against the Warrior's attack?
Yes, definitely. However, as FigureFour says, the General has to go to War. Now obviously that doesn't quite mean what it may mean today, but there are formalities and there are rules (metaphysical ones) and it won't be quiet or clean.
A General who fortifies his position against a Courtier. He becomes an unmovable mountain (assuming he's successful) - he's not politely saying "no" he's the person who is now unshakeable in his convictions potentially shouting down the Courtier. It's not pretty, it's War!
