Greetings, Professor Falken
Well, we keep on inching closer and closer to Nuclear War 2.0. I know I keep on revisiting this, but damnit, this is *THE* topic. All roads of bitching and moaning lead back to this:
Only now it’s not just the US and Russia anymore. There are too many players at the Saloon’s poker table with their fingers on the triggers – and they all know our status as the most aggressive Cowboy. The problem is, if everyone knows how to make and use the same big gun, then it’s just a matter of time before someone uses it, right?
So why not destroy the guns instead of inevitably using them? Oh yeah, duh. We’re human. And humans are greedy – though we have the potential for peace. It would of course, have start with the world accepting that we are all doomed unless we begin to live another way. Just ask any truly reformed alcoholic.
I wish there was better news. I am getting exhausted from thinking about it all the time. But while I still drive to work, buy food from the grocery store, think about buying a new digital camera, and participate in American society in general, I am a contributor to the problem.
We are one people, one planet. As an organism at war with itself, if anyone has a real solution for world peace, I’m all ears.
