Oh, How I wish!!! But then the warmongers would join forces and find a method with which to destroy Gort, then return to fighting. It is disturbing to think that fear of annihilation is the only thing that has the power to keep people from destroying each other. Beneath the Planet of the Apes, also had a theme of 'Stop war or face annihilation' but showed annihilation as inevitable. The Day the Earth stood still was more optimistic.

Excellent post BUT sooner or later anti-Gorts will be constructed and after that anti-Gorts that destroy the creators of the Gorts and then Gorts that destroy those that create anti-Gorks. Excellent theory though, BUT Mankind has proven that for every action there is a reaction!

I'm surprised that everybody thought that this was a brilliant idea.

Ghandi once said, 'An eye for an eye and the world goes blind'.

But you don't care about eyesight. You just want to get the job done. Efficiently. The Borgs used this same method.

Who would really follow in the footsteps of an assisain? Maybe Beau is right. Maybe this is comedy.

Totally nuts... after the Gorts eliminate war - gradually going down the scale to gang warfare, domestic violence, school bullying, hurt feelings, and mild cusswords, what are they going to do? Eliminate anything that's immoral (who decides?) fattening or potentially carcinogenic?

Using technology to promote peace is a truly frightening prospect!
