Zapping the Enemy

 Zapping the Enemy

One of the areas tonight's guest, Dr. Nick Begich, has researched is the latest developments in military technology, which seems particularly pertinent now, given our potential war with Iraq. In an article on his website(1) titled Star Wars, Star Trek and Killing Politely, he outlines how technology that could trigger earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and weather changes may already be in the works. Further, he writes about some alarming, so-called "non lethal" weapons that use a kind of electromagnetic energy pulse that when directed at the human body can effect movement, sleep and memory. One military forecast report even suggested that this kind of system could induce the sound of a human voice within a target. This "would be pure terror. A weapon (that) could intrude into the brain of an individual represents a gross invasion of his private life," Begich writes.

Begich believes that just because we may have the technology to control the weather and induce changes in adversaries' behavior that does mean we should necessarily employ it. "The age we are in requires even greater safeguards of personal freedoms, not further constraints upon it. If freedom is what is being defended than freedom is what must be inherent in the actions our governments take...," he writes.
