That’s a nice insight. These high-tech wingsuits could be weaponized. I should’ve thought of that myself. All I saw was how cool that technology was. But, as you imply, no matter how “cool” an innovation might be, it won’t really capture the public’s attention or generate maximum profits until it can be used as a weapon.
A man named Robert Ardrey wrote a book entitled African Genesis back in the 1960s. He argued that, in terms of evolution, mankind should not be described as the “tool-making animal” but should instead be described as the “weapon-making animal”. More, he argued that the advancement of weapons technology was the true, central focus and source of all human, technological progress.
It was a radical argument (for the time). Today, it sounds more reasonable. Apparently, if you can’t turn an invention into a weapon, do we really need it?
Mankind–whatta species, hmm?
