There's something fundamentally wrong with making war and killing so easy and robotic.
IMHO there is something fundamentally wrong with making war and killing, period. The rest is simply irrelevant.
We took a major wrong turn somewhere and people's blind faith in science is leading the charge.
Sorry but once again I find your logic quite flawed. Science and technology evolved in any era. It used to be that in naval battles an enemy ship would need to be boarded to assure victory, or set on fire from a very close distance. Some time later, naval guns were developed. To contemporaries, they sure seemed "easy and robotic" compared to wielding a sword. Now, they seem quaint and heroic.

Please don't take offense, none was intended, it is just that your first line and your last line seem miles apart from my perspective.
