What you are witnessing are not difficulties with some particular reality of human life on Earth, namely the use of some tool technology, but of its abigarrated use. To this contribute the technologies being less and less understandable for most out of sheer complexity. On the contrary -I chatted the other day with a woman of here- nothing in the present to-war scenario has gone unseen by historical humanity but the awesome potential of destruction. Other than that, the tactics and intents, and who knows if even the results -if the whole weapon potential is not unleashed- have been seen even for almost every instance of the things you see everyday in the news, and you can read it in texts illustrated men of the past left us in the intent of that out of historical awareness we might be so fortunate as to attempt to avoid the repetition of what they or some before them witnessed to be awesome unhuman errors.

In short, more than some difficulty in understanding or human shortcoming in the knowledge area, we are meeting repeteadly the human trial of mastering or wills.
