Military inventions from all the way back to when people were using stones to smash each other in the head, to nuclear bombs have changed the outcome of War. For example in World War II if nuclear bombs were not a thing the war would have gone on for a very long time. Or when we came up with the gun if that never happened we would probably still be using swords.
Think about it like putting one team against another but only one has swords and the other one has guns. Who do you think would win? My opinion is definitely that the team with the guns would win. Even going back to one of the earlier lessons, the lens could be a very powerful weapon. It’s basically a laser.
