That is why I know nuclear weapons tests - including subcritical experiments - are abusive. In most situations we would have two options for dealing with abuse: confront and work with the abuser to change their behavior, or get out. For most of us 'getting out' - finding citizenship elsewhere - is not an option, so we have to confront the abuse and the abuser head on.
Subcritical experiments, in no way, lead towards a healing change of behavior by the U.S. government. As abuse victims, we need to demand an end to these subcritical experiments because we need to defend ourselves from further harm and remold our nuclear-military-industrial complex to reflect the true aspirations of 'the people.'
