Arms Race

You can see a pattern stretching back to antiquity. Every decade, military men invent ever more lethal, terrifying and cruel weapons. Even when the weapons are considered unspeakably horrible, they eventually end up being used. Massive military budgets and technology have accelerated this evolution, through war, peace, boom and bust. What is the end point of this progression? the extinction of man. We are utterly nuts to march toward a goal nobody, not even war-profiteering Republicans, wants.
