34. Representations that human adaptability is high and continues to grow beyond all bounds thanks to new technologies

          Human adaptability is high, but the power of attack is progressively overtaking the power of defense. There is no missile defense barrier that can resist a full-on nuclear attack. There is no universal vaccine that can immunize people to resurrected or engineered superviruses. There is no easy way to defend against a Predator drone lobbing a missile in your general direction. It is always easier to break something than to fix it.
