WWIII - a pictoral poem by T Newfields
Satoru: There have been doomsday prophets throughout history, but life somehow goes on . . . .
Frida: You're too nonchalant. The weapons being developed now and probability vectors suggest that future deadly conflicts are all too likely.
Satoru: Perhaps so, but what good are prophecies of gloom?
Dmiritri: We must balance skepticism with optimism. It's necessary to have both skeptics and optimists. Pessimists remind us of what to avoid and optimists what to aspire towards.
Ying: Hmm. Isn't balance hard to sustain on almost any level?
