The next part of this conspiracy theory is that all of our really big advances in technology happened because of the military:
- cell phones
- the internet
- the Hubble space telescope
- rockets into space
- communications satellites
- jet engines
So my theory is that left to our own devices, people would just putter along peacefully and we wouldn't have any fighting or conflict or war. It's only because some people want to go to the stars, and they want the rest of us to build a spaceship for them, and in order to build this spaceship, we need to develop all this technology, and what you need there is some motivation, and nothing motivates people more than the threat of someone trying to kill them. And just to make the threat authentic, you occasionally have to actually kill some people, which is why we have wars.
Is this a great theory or what? Will it pass peer review? Will it pass Tam review?
