Yale Institute of International Studies. The original paper/dissertation of Bernard Brodie, which was the first to really theorize and expand on the new reality of Nuclear Warfare. Again, because Nuclear Warfare was so absolutely altering to war, I believe a lot of these theories and thoughts can be studied and applied upon our new reality of UAS warfare and robotic systems changing and altering the field of war. I further believe and want to vet out and theorize that unmanned systems (US) warfare may actually be more altering to war than even Nuclear warfare. Austin, R. (2010).
Science fiction is a form of fiction that principally deals with impact of actual or imagined science upon individual or society as a whole. Much of the fiction which is characterized as science fiction is horrific, born out of fear or even depicts hatred towards scientific view of the world. This genre formally emerged in west during the transformation caused by industrial revolution which caused marked levels of anxiety and made writers, artists etc. apprehensive about the prospects of future, the impact that this emerging age of machines and technology will have. Science fiction became a medium to disclose the utopian aspirations, political agitations etc.
Man should never be allowed to play god, but creating life is something that has always been an enticing concept (American Scientist). In order to feed our fantasies about cloning and producing life, we turn to fiction novels to amaze, and sometimes to scare us. One of the best-known archetypes of this is Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. Hailed as the eighth most popular English novel in history (The Guardian), the classic story of a mad scientist named Dr. Victor Frankenstein has been the basis of countless movies and parodies (Romantic Circles). Though the name Frankenstein has become very well known, the original story as penned by Mary Shelley has been overwhelmed by the numerous derivatives that were published afterward in different forms of media including movies, plays, and even comic books.
It is hinted that it is some sort of nuclear bomb that will be deployed and be so devastating to the world that the war will ‘finish as quickly as it started’. This event is very similar to the situation between Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump, where there was a conflict that involved the potential release of nuclear weapons. The only differences between this case and the one shown in the book; is one the situation, in this case, was de-escalated, and two; the warning signs, and media coverage shown in Fahrenheit 451 were disregarded because people were too absorbed in their ‘families’ in their ‘TV parlours’ to show any sort of interest or attention to the outside world. When Montag was trying to get people to see, to understand, he had a ‘conversation’ with his wife, Millie, with him saying ‘Jesus God…How in hell did those bombers get up there every second of our lives! Why doesn’t someone want to talk about it…I don’t hear those idiot bastards in the parlour talking about it.

Throughout the class, different movies have been shown that deal with a wide array of subjects. The subjects taught in these films have been political, often dealing with issues that are contemporary and relate back to American society. While these movies try to portray or satire politics to show a glimpse into how politics genuinely are, they have at times misstepped at portraying American politics accurately, veering into a direction that is more fantasy than reality. One such example of a film not accurately depicting American politics is the 2005 thriller V for Vendetta, In which a masked man attempts to overthrow a ruthless fascist government through destructive violence and by inspiring the general populous to rise against the government.
But in 21th century, China grew vertically, and the North Korea started to their nuclear test. Also, after President George W. Bush declared ‘War on Terror’, the Middle East countries, especially Iran became a magazine. So even though the whole world wants denuclearization but United States still needs nuclear weapons. North Korea is one of most dangerous country in the world. If South Korea have a nuclear weapon, it would be easy to deter North Korea.
As a result of this, they believe the Heptapod’s are hostile, and they turn hostile themselves. These issues escalate the conflict into an unwarranted war waged on the aliens. The movie goes on to show how this conflict is solved, and all it takes is a person to take on the role of a bridge between the two cultures and approach the other side with an open mind. Despite being a movie about an interaction between unlikely sides, Arrival has an important message to deliver about any intercultural communication for those who are willing to hear it: Do not let your fears dictate your actions, keep away from preconceived ideas, and keep an open
The 1950s was not only a time of a growing threat of communism and the fear of nuclear war, but it was also a time of increasing satisfaction in the latest consumer product: the television. TVs captivated the American public to the point where books were being forgotten about. Though books were still being bought and sold, some never made it to the shelf because of the growing amount of government censorship. The government not only censored books, but they also censored movies, content on radios, and other creative works. This censorship controlled what the American public read, watched, and heard, which in turn limited the information available to the public.

The text appeals to ethos because we know that the author is a famous cartoonist Herb Lock (automatic ethos). The newspaper his cartoons are in, The Washington Post is also very credible. It appeals to pathos because when you see the words “war, poverty, prejudice” you automatically have a vivid picture of those horrible things. He wants to show people that even if you can go to the moon, you can’t escape these problems on Earth and he believes that people should be spending their time on these problems rather than going to the moon. The picture does not appeal to logos but people must already know about the moon landing to understand this cartoon.
Classics are known as the objects which endure the passages of time, only to passed on again and again while encompassing continuance and a sense of adventure. The War Of the Worlds by H.G. Wells was considered to be the “Father” of the science fiction genre and apply the use of curiosity to employ his readers to discover more about the otherworldly species who have invaded the diverse universe this author has created. Throughout this classic novel you follow an undefined protagonist who must endure the chaos the aliens of Mars had brought upon the unsuspecting world. This novel definitely exceeds the qualifications for the privilege of being considered a Classic with an intellectual protagonist, detailed use of metaphors and foreshadowing
While this novel is a work of fiction, Postman believes that perhaps “man’s infinite appetite for distractions” and media like the TV are the ways in which our society could be controlled (Lecture 9/8). Before my day without electronic media, Postman’s opinion seemed very farfetched to me. But after analyzing my experience of cutting out electronic media, I can understand Postman’s argument better. Media has become such a significant and essential part of my generations’ life that it is the source of much of our happiness and amusement. Having all media taken away from us is a concept that is terrifying, and Postman may be right that we are controlled by our dependence on electronic media and the entertainment it
