Will War Drive Civilization Underground?
 
Will War Drive Civilization Underground? [ Literature -> Article ]
Posted by cazsim83 Tue 01 Jul 2008, 4:04 AM

For those who've never heard of PaleoFuture.com, usually using various old sources, they spark up different ideas of alternate futures based on strange stories from the past. (Correct me if I'm wrong here, they're hard for me to put in a nutshell)

A neat little article that seems oh-so-familiar for those of us who've played a certain legendary post-apocalyptic nuclear RPG came out recently over at the PaleoFuture website.

Will War Drive Civilization Underground? - here are a few excerpts from the article:

The December 13, 1942 Montana Standard (Butte, MT) ran an interesting piece by Gardner Dane about the world of 1975, devastated by war, forcing people to move underground in order to survive. The original article appeared in Every Week magazine...

...Does this mark the end of a city's existence? Does it mean the Grand Climax of civilization? The ultimate Armageddon? The wiping out of a nation as one would crush a hornet's nest?

...The author (naturally) concludes on a pessimistic note:

Prophecy is always dangerous!

But if the past history and total experience of the human race has any value as a criterion of the future, within a half century there will be another war.

Each war, we like to say, grows more horrible! But each war brings its defenses against the diabolical, horrible offensive weapons devised by the race of man.

It seems certain that when the dogs of war are unleashed again on some future, unhappy date, civilization will have to move underground for the duration.

Thanks to LateWhiteRabbit for the heads up.
