Weapons

If you could un-invent something, what would it be? Discuss why, potential repercussions, or a possible alternative.

First thing that came to my mind were weapons. Anything that could make it harder for people to kill each other. I know that to erradicate violence, we would need to reinvent humans, and that’s not possible.

Without conventional and mass destruction weapons, I believe that the number of innocent victims would diminish. The countries would have more money to fund health, nutrition and education. The global spending in weapons in the world was last year more than 1,500 billion dollars. Meanwhile, the UN often has problems to fund its programs to help the refugees in conflict areas, and the needy in countries struck by drought or famine.

Undo.
