    I just watched the movie WarGames again, for the umptieth time. Matthew Broderick plays a teenager who is trying to get free advance game downloads, and accidentally hacks into NORAD. Chaos ensues, all is well.

    the computer, WOPR, code name Joshua after the inventor’s dead son, finishes the scenario with the suggestion that “the only way to win is not to play”

    however, with so many millions of aggressive fear-driven us-and-them ers running things, mostly men, YES, MOSTLY MEN !!! … the ‘big countries’ are always going to play the game, also the wannabes. And North Korea. Not Bhutan, though. :)
