About the Book

This book is a must-read because the political landscape has appreciably changed from when, after the war, I served in Korea as a Detachment Commander for the 121st Hospital where your word was your bond. Regardless who you were, it didn’t matter, for you were completely trustworthy in most instances, what you said is what you got. That most certainly is not true today. The political parties are equally dishonest when they believe they are fully earning their room and board in serving We the People when you figure they spend most of the time quarreling over who’s politically right and wrong rather than the political issues of the day. Tragically, today’s political situation is where compromise is no longer the pressing issue of the day, but rather, just plain survival has taken front and center, not only in politics, but life in general. Global warming and artificial intelligence will kill us unless we can keep them under control. If AI is eventually used for destructive purposes, just like the atomic bomb was used to end WWII – this time the force can be made stronger, therefore more deadly, all of our futures are in jeopardy. We can mollify or destroy the ill effects of global warming or artificial intelligence respectively, if all countries that have AI and those nations that are members of the United Nations’ Climate Control Convention agree on a course of action that they’re able to pledge themselves to support preserving life. Even that may be questionable because what they say and what they do may mean two different things. Therefore, what’s being said represents a real conundrum that makes all the political and domestic struggles that I mentioned in the book secondary in importance even if extremism prevents compromises to occur in our country today.
