True but what of the benefits of this knowledge. I agree that this could
very well be a tool used to destroy people. People have the tendency to
destroy. But just because something has the potential for bad is that
any reason not to pursue it? If the US hadnt had the insatiable desire
to get one over on the Soviets (and also have the ability to destroy
them) neither you nor I would be using a computer today or surfing the net.
So yes I agree that this could be bad but before it is condemned weigh
the positive result against the negative.
