Absolutely nobody here, least of all myself, is calling nuclear war 'winnable' (that's actually quite the opposite of reality) and nuclear power 'safe'. I've loudly argued with many here that I really don't care how safe any scientists wish to call it, no nuclear generator is worth the risk, ever, imo. I take a very hard line approach to being entirely opposite to what you're calling is indoctrination. If anything, I may be 'indoctrinated' into an extremely anti-nuclear view regarding it's power and energy. All that said, the tech changed things about every layer of society and about every technology built onto the same understanding. As Toffer is making clear. Whether we had launched a nuke at an enemy or not, it would still be a fair name for this age.
