I grew up in the 80's, under the constant shadow of nuclear war. There was a long lull. But now, Russia is rattling it's sword again. Does today's youth fear nuclear war enough? I'm not trying to earn a ban here, but really, I think we've grown complacent

The US is vastly superior to Russia in practically every sector.

We still have the strongest military the world has ever seen not to mention world class universities and research centers. We will be on top for awhile we are far more stable than China and Russia to by a long shot.

90s child, so I guess you could consider me the youth? I've always been aware between the tensions of countries probably more so than others since i've studied history before. Dropped it because they kept on teaching me the same crap. But anyway. Even if I am aware of the potential of nuclear war it's the last thing on my mind. To me I feel like it's something so big and out of my control so I pretty much ignore it.

I have private thoughts about this that I won't put into words. But what I will say is that I'm pretty much betting some sort of WW3 is inevitable. It just matters how long it takes to get there and who attacks first.

We're at war every day with foreign countries. Asymmetric warfare.

Don't even get me started on all the daily attacks that happen on our many corperations and infrastructure. The technology age will determine the next great war. Not nukes.

Side note...I also grew up in the 80's. I feel ya on the age thing. And yeah Americans are pretty complacent as a whole.

I'm more worried about our global economy... with fewer and fewer long term jobs and the jobs that are available are either low paying or short term (6mths - 2 years). Then your looking for another job again... with no retirement for any of the people that are under 50years old right now... yeah the moment they can't pay the welfare checks this country will be gone... the government will turn on its people at that time because is the South every business will be robbed in a week. This is closer than you think too with more and more companies making their products outside this country but expect us to have the money to keep buying their stuff... soon Americans won't have the money to buy anything except for what they have to have they will stop buying new cloths etc and these others countries will start to suffer..

Seems pretty doubtful that civilian populations will be serious targets in modern wars. The main threat is just the civilians themselves turning into criminals at the first sign of a breakdown in order.

Everyone's complacent nowadays because no one is crazy enough to launch nukes with the knowledge that it will end the world.


Well... There is one exception.
