And if you want a preview of the sort of twisted cheer you might find in a bunker, try reading Wool.

Nuclear war isn't going to happen. No matter how high tensions get between the US and Russia, we won't go to war. There might be proxy wars like in Syria but we won't directly attack each other.

Actually, there's little reason for two nuclear powered nations to ever invade each other. The one use of nuclear weapons that the world would sanction is defensively nuking your own territory in order to repel an invading army. That is why the US and Russia will never actually attack each other with actual armies.

However, there's a new type of war starting and the US is pretty far behind. It's cyber warfare. If an attack ever happens, this is how it will happen. A major cyber attack that wipes out infrastructure and finance. It would freeze supply lines, cities would starve in hours, and people would overthrow their government within days. If Russia wanted to take out the US government (or vice versa) a sustained cyber attack is how it would be done. No invading armies, just citizens overthrowing their government.

Think all it would cost? And how much would be lost?
And what could of been built instead.
Maybe something really pulls on the human spirit to push the recycle button. Willfully? As the species reaches opportunities to advance or neutralize itself.

Hopefully as other members have stated there are hidden mechanisms to prevent such actions.
That is 1 painting optimistically-

But then, if we blow ourselves up, we don't have to worry about all the other issues that plague us this day and age. So there is that.

Unless some are plagued in another dimension, by being in closer contact with whatever had/has interest in the human spirit enough to pull them their, through manipulation.
Into it's manifestation-realm-paranormal supernatural dimension of where it primarily resides possibly more metaphysical like, similar to the human spirit.
If this is all that some think there is, not seeing beyond "this" can make it easier to contain some. Because they never considered their actions here, having opposite reactions some where else.
