This chapter warns of possible errors in the future. Fukushima is the apocalypse to what was Hiroshima. By using atomic power, it becomes possible to dissuade confrontation, and hail this as a strategy toward achieving peace, toward balancing and stopping terror. But this weapon of dissuasion begets in others also the desire to own and possess such weapons. This use of atomic weapons does not enhance relationships because there is no kind of relationship that exists to speak when everything is confronted with nuclear weapons as deterrents. It is not like David and Goliath, nor Ulysses and the Cyclops. This kind of balance destroys any and all relationships as there is no longer confrontation, as it is already so much dependent on human will to command. A little mistake or the proverbial mad scientist can end it all. This situation is therefore beyond anything calculable as the effects of the decision itself would be immense.
