good morning everyone
with the modernization in world technology in electronics , digitization and of course modernization of weapons in military is a serious threat to human as well as biotic diversity . today each country is indulged in developing chemical weapons , atom bomb , nuclear weapons without considering how much bad it would have impact on human on this planet . 7 billion people can die if u bombard 20 atom bombs . with the atom bombs going into the hands of Iran and Pakistan , i am afraid that the world end is not too far . there is so much hatred between communities , organization and countries that a a little violence can lead to mass destruction . during 80's Russia couldn't maintained its Chernobyl nuclear reactor and the whole Europe have faced the consequences and still they are facing so . the gas leakage in Bhopal have killed near 20,000 people that too in 80's when the politicians and experts have got to know that these weapons are not for human welfare, why after 80's these weapons have been manufactured , there is 800% rise in weapons if u compared to than in 80's . why we human didn't learn a lesson from 80's disaster? nuclear weapons were never and will never be useful for human , they are being engineered in countries to finish the world .

Hi,

Nuclear and Chemical weapons aren't harmful by themselves. The basic motive behind these weapons is to provide a tool for self-defense. If a carpenter uses a hammer to bang a human head open, we blame the carpenter and not the hammer. Tools are, thus, morally neutral. It is us humans who derive immoral benefits out of them.

Apart from being a method of self-defense, weapons have other benefits too. They form an integral part in research. Eventually, they could be used to power the world and relieve us from the renewable energy crisis. Not to mention, the extra-terrestrial benefits weapons could have in future (like shown in movies, weapons used to destroy asteroids that are trajected straight towards earth).

The closest example to anyone would be the presence of a knife in your kitchen. Whilst it could be regarded as a lethal weapon due to carelessness or evil motives, it is also a tool that saves our day. In the very same way, we cannot put nuclear weapons to trial. They are neither good nor bad. It is we who attach a label to them. Looking in the wrong direction leaves us horrified of war. Knives do not lead to death and weapons do not lead to war UNLESS WE HUMANS TURN EVIL.
