Yesterday I posted about the fusion breakthrough at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory.  It is truly a breakthrough that could change the future of the human race.   The problem is that I am old and I have seen too much of the human race; a façade of civilization to cover up the most base instinct buried in our DNA.


We must step back and realize that the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory is the government entity responsible for all of our nuclear weapons.   Almost all of the technology we enjoy today came as spinoffs of weapon development.


Look at the world.  Women are publicly beaten by the morality police and there are religious beheadings throughout the Moslim world; The Uighurs in China are forced into labor camps; There are gulags in North Korea and Russia; school girls are kidnapped in Nigeria by Boko Haram and forced into marriages; Untouchables still exist as an underclass in India; Russia is bombing the civilian population of Ukraine; China has the largest navy in the world and is threatening Taiwan; North Korea is developing long-range missiles that could reach the United States carrying nuclear warheads; The United States, one of the most warlike nations ever to exist, invaded Iraq to replace Saddam Hussein and ended up destroying the country and killings thousands-of-times more people than the despot replaced…  

Look at our history and look at the atrocities man commits in the name of politics, religion, and ego.   From the first mythical family when Cain killed Able, mankind has shown itself the most violent and destructive animal to ever inhabit the earth.



The invention of a clean, eco-friendly, unlimited power source has the potential to change the world for the better; but that would be disregarding who we are.  


These are the things the Ol’Buzzard thinks of when he can only sleep five or six hours a night.

  1. The human race is conflicted and torn between good and evil alright. Don't lose sight of the good things though. They are important too.

  2. Can human nature be changed? Communist ideology said it could and the end result was Homo sovieticus. Religions make the same claim and we have the Taliban and Republican Jesus Christians. We do the best we can where we are with what we have and maybe the best we can do is slow it down. Many individuals seem to be less evil than groups. “Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.”― George Carlin
