A body of work. That’s all I have at the end. All of it in the past. What will the future hold?

I gave everything, at the expense of family and friends and love and finally, life. All to achieve the goal. The goal set by my leader. Did I do it for my country? Or for him alone? Or for myself? Pride, a deadly sin. I see that now. I will be remembered in the history books. I will be there, alongside my leader. History will judge me. Call it what you will: Nuclear fusion is the scientific term; others call it the Doomsday Device; or Armageddon; or The Destroyer of Worlds. It will bring death. Their bodies will burn.

History tells us it happened once before. They built it to end a war. Then they destroyed them all and banned them and eventually they forgot. Not anymore. My body of work will start a war. It will ignite the world. My leader will rule them, or they will die. This is the future for the human race.

I only wish I could be there to see it. Long live the revolution, long live the leader.

  4. Powerful, thought provoking piece. Its a futile hope that the world leaders will keep their nukes in their trousers. I fear one day one idiot will let rip and it’ll be game over.

  5. Unfortunately, based upon human nature at its worst, the vivid scenario you painted may be humanity’s destiny.
