Most Hideous Reason To Avoid Nuclear War

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and others have recently warned of the great danger of nuclear war. I concur. The USSA government has put the world on a path to nuclear war.

There are satanic lunatics running USSA foreign policy. Their policies seem designed to force military confrontation with China and Russia, both nuclear armed powers, with a full brace of powerful nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them on target anywhere in the world within 30 minutes.

If sanity does not prevail soon, unthinkable events with unimaginable consequences could be put into play. 

The problem with nuclear war is not just the initial blasts of detonating nuclear warheads and bombs. Those are more than bad enough. The terrific concussive pressure of a nuclear detonation, coupled with the tremendous heat and release of radioactivity are enormously destructive, in and of themselves, easily capable of causing tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of casualties, depending on the yield of the weapon and the population density of the target area.

As Steven Star has made clear in his recent article, The Lethality of Nuclear Weapons, even a so-called "limited" nuclear war could result in up to 2 billion human casualties. A large-scale nuclear exchange would effectively be an extinction level event  for the human race and many other life forms.

It would not set us back to the Stone Age; it would wipe us out. It would permanently erase us from the face of the Earth.

And that is just from consequences like fall out and nuclear winter sorts of effects.

It Gets Even Worse -- Much, Much Worse

The problem is that not only would the massive firestorms of a shooting nuclear war produce millions of tons of smoke that would rise into the upper atmosphere; thus creating a prolonged nuclear winter that would plunge the northern hemisphere (at least) into a decade-long deep freeze that would shut down agricultural production, thus creating mass starvation --

No, the even more serious issue is that in that scenario most of the nuclear power plants on this world would cease to function, would melt down and/or explode and then there would be a cascading series of follow-on nuclear catastrophes that would not and could not be fixed.

In effect, there would be 100 Fukushima-like nuclear power plant failures, or 200, or 300.  The hellish horror of nuclear war would be taken to an even deeper level of hell, by the follow-on failure of great numbers of nuclear power plants.

Game play it out. Many nuclear power plants are  near major cities and if the cities suffer nuclear strikes, then what happens to the nuclear power plants?

Answer: They fail outright, maybe in the initial nuclear blast, sending literal tons, thousands of tons, of highly poisonous nuclear fuel as a radioactive aerosol, up into the stratosphere in the towering mushroom clouds. And all of that radioactive, death dust will fall out over the face of the Earth, into the sea, into the rivers, onto the forests and farmland. Into the air you breathe, into the water you drink, into the food you eat. The deadly implications are obvious.

Or, say the nuclear strikes are farther away from the nuclear power plants, but that they devastate the infrastructure of the country. Roads are impassable. Civil society, or what remains of it, is in an uproar. Lawlessness runs rampant, in the face of the collapse. 

Do you imagine that the technicians, engineers and maintenance staff required to run a nuclear power plant will be coming to work under those conditions? Of course not. Nothing will be working. Those who survive the initial blasts will be looking out for their own self-interest. Going to work, even assuming they are physically able to do so, will be the farthest thing from their minds.

And conditions will rapidly deteriorate from there, as one nuclear power plant after another catastrophically fails. There are hundreds of them in the USSA, Europe, Ukraine, Russia, India, China and elsewhere. Something like 98% of them are in the northern hemisphere; there are only a handful in the southern hemisphere.

In other words, game over for humanity.Vast clouds of deadly radioactivity will sweep the face of the planet, sterilizing it of the human species and many other species.

That is why nuclear war must not happen. If it does, no one will win. Everyone will lose everything.

That is why I have gone out on the nuclear missile silos in the USSA again and again to stage nonviolent, peace demonstrations.

For the life of me, I don't know why everyone in the world wasn't out there with me. But they weren't.

Mass psychosis? Magical thinking in the face of extinction level threats? Or just damned shallow and superficial?

My Current Situation in Ecuador
 
After more than a year of intense struggle, the shaman who assaulted me has been indicted and has now been arraigned. There will be a trial hearing in less than a couple of months.

I have been pushed to the wall by this ordeal, to my financial limits and beyond. The case is actually bigger than me, in that there certainly are other victims of shamanic abuse in the Amazon region. I am not the only victim. Indeed, I have already heard from another victim of the same shaman who has nevertheless declined to pursue justice or even to support me in my case. But unlike 99% of the others, I have elected to stand up and fight back, no matter the odds. And against all expectations, my assailant has been indicted and is going to trial. But the battle is not over.

I have no illusions about what I am up against. I was almost killed.

What happens in the Amazon is vitally important to what happens on this planet. The shamans of the region theoretically have an essential role to play in healing the Amazon and showing the way for humanity to deeply bond with the natural world -- but not if they themselves are abusive to the very people who come to the region to consult the sacred power plants in search of hyper-conscious communion with Mother Nature. 

And so I need your assistance. I am asking for your aid. I know that some of you are more than able to assist me. For USA dollar contributions please e-mail me at: dr.samizdat1618@gmail.com  and I will tell you how to send a donation.
