One Happy Family

Gunpowder
was the child of an ancient Chinese alchemist.

Tanks
were the creation of a pious Bohemian.

Rifles
were invented by a brilliant mathematician.

Machine guns
are the work of a former doctor.

The combat drone
was first made by an model airplane hobbyist.

Agent orange
was the inspiration of a botany professor.

The A-bomb was
Oppenheimer’s world-shifting offspring.

So many fledglings
from our imagination!

We’re one happy family, huh?
Frida: Our understanding of military technology has developed far more rapidly than our understanding of ethics, education, or ecology.
Ying: Yep! In my darker moments I feel that human extinction is almost inevitable.
Dmiritri: Many religions have an Armageddon prophecy. However, I’m not sure things have to end that way.
