Technology and War
Based off of Gwynne Dyer’s “War”, Dyer argues that war might not be in our genes but something very much like it is. And that the underlying purpose of war has not changed: an act of mass violence is applied against an opponent so that the vanquished will submit to the will of the conqueror. The primary changes have been technological which has permitted us to make war, not necessarily more deadly, but more effective. Discuss how technology has helped shaped the way we fight wars. How has it changed the culture of war?
