The Keyboard Is Mightier Than The Nuke: Thoughts
The Keyboard Is Mightier Than The Nuke

By: David Rader II on July 21, 2007 @ 4:52 PM

If the pen is mightier than the sword, which in many ways it is, then what would that make the keyboard?

I think a lot of people can type much faster than they can write. Most people who can type these days have access to the internet, so what is typed has a high likeyhood of being read world wide within less than a few minutes, when back in the old days, likely when the "pen became mightier than the sword," it would of taken a least a few minutes just to get the ink and feather pen ready to write. Now writings are at the worlds access within less than minutes, readable, and roughly translatable extremely quickly.

So the scale from which writing can be compared "the feather pen" to the "keyboard," seems like it would likely be comparable to the sword to the nuclear power. Or am I exaggerating? I think not. You don't even need to attack a bird or dig into a mountain for the right stones to get a wring tool these days. It's so simple.

The keyboard is more mighty than the nuke.

It may even stand to reason that pens are more mighty than the nuke as well, or more perhaps type writers. When the cold war happened, the keyboard was not too popular.

So that would make the keyboard dwarfing the nuke. One thing the keyboard doesn't do though, is dwarf the ego's of some tyrannical rulers.

What can dwarf the ego's of tyrannical rulers? Perhaps that is a question left up to everyone. To keep in mind, at least for myself, is the thought that tyrannical rulers may not see themselves as truely tyrannical, and perhaps that may make them not be, but realization can be harsh to accept for both a tyrant, and those who have not experienced a tyrant coming in to realization.

Depending simply on our points of view, a tyrant can easily be seen as a hero or a tyrant. A goal may be to, through peaceful communication, become sharing of the same basic view.

I just wish more nations would focus on elaborate defense systems than attack systems. Perhaps it is easier to throw a rock than to catch one. Warlords need to learn the principals of aikido.

Morihei Ueshiba communicated (Founder of Aikido):
To injure an opponent is to injure yourself. To control aggression without inflicting injury is the Art of Peace.
