In 1945, two of these killed 200,000 people in Japan, injured millions more and circulated radiation throughout the world.
There are now 9,220 exponentially more powerful ones in existence, That we know of.
Over the next few decades, the US, Russia and China will update most of the 9,220 with new Artificial Intelligence-driven delivery platforms, including space. By 2045, the three big powers will have spent upwards of $3 trillion on weapons of mass-murder.
THE INSANITY OF IT
With nuclear weapons, the best that can happen is that they are never used. That is, we (humanity) only win if we waste the $3 trillion! If they are actually used, any worries we have about our personal appearance, meeting the mortgage payment or even climate change are literally vaporized!
WASTE $3 TRILLION OR DIE!
Waste $3 trillion or die is the insane dichotomy the generals feed the politicians, who feed the media, who feed us, normal people. We are powerless to stop the insanity.
Or are we?
