Realists are really romantics
Working on book with working title, From Gods to Tools. Why that title?
We treat nuclear weapons as though they were gods.

Nuclear weapons are symbols of power. They give advocates of nuclear power the feeling that they are gods.
But nukes are only tools and they are not very good at being tools.
They are supposed to be good at deterrence, but in reality, they are not, and deterrence is a very unreliable concept. It is subjective and will fail.
Risk of war is high now because of the crazy factor in the US, N. Korea, India

Theres a belief that every one wants nuclear power. Thats just not real. When the UN had a treaty for eliminating nuclear weapons, 122 nations voted for it.

Nuclear war as apocalypse is disempowering.
The main obstacles to getting rid of Nuclear weapons is belief systems.

Protesters are facing 20 year prison sentence. They argue against nukes from a moral viewpoint.

The talk the president gives

The challenge is to change peoples minds enough so that when you say nuclear weapons they think clumsy, dangerous technology with virtually no real utility. We need a movement that changes perceptions

Why can we look realistically, when before that wasnt possible?

How would getting rid of nuclear weapons affect our values?
