Vote on nukes are fake post 3 Replies +20 like thisGood comment on the nukes are fake topic. A few thoughts on why we should not assume the existence of nukes. 1) In areas of real technology, progress is rapid. With nuclear weapons, space exploration, and even nuclear power, there has been no progress over the decades. In fact, the progress has been negative. Supposedly we put men on the moon in the 1960s, but in the 2000s, America can barely lift a man 10 feet off the ground with a rocket and definitely can’t get a man out of low-Earth orbit. This is just not how real technology works over 50 year periods of increasing spending and exponentially increasing computing power. We see the same thing with the nuclear program. Just absolutely stagnant, in spite of massive military spending over many decades. It seems that we’ve lost the ability to even maintain the “nuclear arsenal,” much less improve it. And while government is inefficient, this, again, is just not how technology works. 2) Fearporn campaigns are designed to create fear. Once the campaigns have played out and become less effective as fear porn, TPTB tend to abandon them. Which is very revealing regarding the true purpose of these campaigns. TPTB are now pumping the Virus Crisis, which has crowded out the Climate Crisis, which crowded out the War on Terror, which crowded out The Nuclear Threat. None of those “threats” diminished or resolved themselves. But they’ve all been strongly de-emphasized. Because they’ve become less effective at generating fear. Given supposed nuclear proliferation and loose nukes and rising nationalism and rising tensions and aging arsenals, the threat from nukes would be HIGHER now. If there WERE a threat from nukes. 3) A good source document which helps show (without trying to) that Nagasaki and Hiroshima wouldn’t have had to be nuked to be flattened is the documentary The Fog of War by Errol Morris, about Robert McNamara. There’s an amazing sequence talking about (and showing photos of) Japanese cities alleged to be flattened by firebombing. The pictures look exactly like the pictures of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No nukes required to level Japanese cities, apparently. Here’s the 2 minute video: 4) Finally, as we sit here in the middle of The Virus Crisis and look around at our fellow man, it is easy to see that the old criticism of “conspiracy theories” (“too many people would have had to keep it a secret”) has it exactly backwards. 90% of the American population is eagerly embracing, promoting, and signalling belief in unproved claims about invisible particles promoted by known liars. There is incredible social pressure to “believe,” to SAY you believe, and to ACT like you believe. (Where’s my surgical mask?) If 200 million Americans have become active promoters of the Coronavirus hoax, then it isn’t difficult AT ALL to imagine that 100,000 military people could keep a straight face about “our nation’s nuclear weapons.” Source: Friday Morning Poll: Nuclear Weapons – Piece of Mindful Support the site via Patreon | Other ways to donateShare this:EmailFacebookTwitterWhatsAppMorePinterestSkypePress ThisLinkedInLike this:Like Loading...
