I said that weapons themselves are the worse invention ever.
let me say something right now about your position on weapons. i believe that it is inherent in human nature to be evil and to make evil things (ie
weapons). humans will always find ways to kill each other with wahtever is at hand. Why do you think people used to be stoned? because stones were
plentiful. why do people kill with guns? because guns are plentiful and more efficient than stones. myself, i would rather be shot than stoned, and
rather annhilalated in an atomic fireballl than shot. its cleaner. when i die, i want it to be quick. what i am getting at is that you cannot have
nuclear reactors without nuclear bombs, for instance. you can't have cars without people getting run over on purpose. it is INHERENT IN HUMAN
NATURE to do bad stuff with potentially good technologies. so nukes themselves aren't bad. they can't be, they are inanimate objects. what is bad
is people using them or threatening to.
Do you see that image? That is what happens when that energy is released
that energy can power an entire country for years. that is good. creating a nuclear wasteland is bad.
i've heard there are two paths to peace. one is to be a total pacifist yourself, and hope that others will follow your example. the other way is to
show how horrific war is so that no one will ever want it to happen again. the latter method was used with the holocaust and nukes. people know how
bad it is and so don't want it to happen.
and changing human nature so that bad things won't happen is taking away free will, which is the most beautiful thing in the universe. anything that
does not have free will cannot truely be called alive. eventually i hope we will become mature enough as a collective species to realize what is bad
and what is good, so that horrific uses of bad technologies doesn't happen. that doesn't mean they can't, its just people would be mature enough
to realize why it souldn't happen.
now the last part of the above paragraph will never happen while humans are too narrow-minded to see the bigger picture of the world than themselves
and what beleifs they were brought up with. a species cannot sqabble among itself and hope to survive for long. nuclear weapons will just bring the
end around all the quicker, and with the end, mybe our enlightenment as a species.....
