I seriously wonder if you are dianogsably an idiot. Do you realize that Los Alamos National Labs’ Biology department was the first to sequence the entire human genome? Do you realize that we are starting to make massive breakthroughs in quantum computing? Do you realize that many of our current technologies we love today derive from war? (Computers, the Internet, airplanes, radar, just to name a few.)
Does that mean war and killing is good? Not necessarily, but it certainly isn’t because los Alamos exists that war does. Sure we developed the nuke, that’s our claim to fame. But that doesn’t mean our operations are completely focused on killing people. Maybe if you did some research you’d find out all the projects we are doing today that have huge humanitarian benefits across the globe, from purifying the most contaminated waters to developing efficient renewable energy sources.
Furthermore, let me introduce what I’m sure is a very mind blowing topic for any supporter of this aritcle. It’s called Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). This is the concept that a full out war between any two nuclear capable nations would result in the total destruction of both. THIS IS A MASSIVE DETERRENT FOR WAR. The Cold War may have been a lot bloodier had nukes NOT existed. In fact I think is is completely reasonable, and even proveable to say that the deterrent aspect nuclear weapons has saved far more lives than nukes have ever damaged including dementia.
The world isn’t perfect, stop thinking you can just make everything right by your pitiful little words. So long as there’s disparity there will be conflict, if you can’t wrap that around your head, go write fairytales instead.
You complain about Los Alamos being some death machine but I find it ironic that you are bitching about it by typing on a machine that uses thousands of technologies that stem from the thing you hate. Perhaps what’s most important in this world for resolving conflict is not trying to shut down anything that’s remotely affiliated with weapons. Instead look to grow communities both socially and economically, to respect each other, but sometimes we need to kill. Sometimes we need to intervene in atrocities that others commit, sometimes two ideologies of life that both exist cannot coexist, and sometimes that means war is necessary. Weather by greed, humanity, or self defense, the US were able to liberate Jewish internment camps but with the blood of thousands of Germans on their hands? Was that justified?
