Re: Episode of the Week: 2x05 "Loud As A Whisper"
Hmm, I know where you're coming from but I'm not so sure. At least we knew where we stood during the Cold War. MAD was a stabaliser of sorts, as mad as that sounds. At least we knew who had nukes back then. Now any crazed cell with a grudge has the potential to get hold of fissile material to make a "dirty bomb".
One day soon, man is going to be able to harness incredible energies, energies that could ultimately hurl us to other worlds in... some sort of spaceship.
