The Dark Place
I am much more of an optimist than I used to be, but sometimes late at night I visit that dark region of my soul that allows me to think the unthinkable. With all the crap going on today, I wonder if we are long for this world. Iran and North Korea either have or are fast-tracking nuclear weapons. Combine this with the rest of the nuclear community, and I believe it's only a matter of time before someone uses that power unwisely. Should we take out Iran and North Korea? Or should we just sit back and hope it doesn't happen? I don't think diplomacy is going to work with dictatorships run by crazies. Not to mention terrorists possibly getting their hands on nukes. Complicated matters in an increasingly complicated world. Technology does so much good... and so much harm.
