Nuclear Experimentation: Year 73

Ethan Indigo Smith

73 Anniversary 



After I mentioned I am a writer to a new friend he inquired what I was writing about. At that point in time I had been writing and researching nuclear experimentation. I told him I had been writing a lot about the incident at Fukushima and related nuclearism. He responded, ‘Oh, so you’re the one.’ He was not familiar with my writing. What he meant was that there were so few people looking into the subject that I might in fact be among a very few if not the one.

My conclusion has long been that nuclear experimentation is an industry of fascism to the letter. Nuclear experimentation is an oligarchical collectivist dream in which rarified elements are mined, refined, burned for energy and then transformed to weaponry, and ‘stored’ as waste. The functions of nuclear experimentation is embedded in the military industrial complex and so death, pollution and secrecy is normal even when things go as planned and especially so when radiological events occur.

The inception of the nuclear experimentation era began with a test detonation in a remote area of the Nevada desert on July 16, 1945. Indigenous populations were moved and the scientist/military team moved in. The area was aptly named Jornada del Muerto Valley long before the experimental detonation. The Valley of The Journey of Death was named so when just travelling across the desert valley was dangerous. And now it is aptly named so for surely it is where mankind began the journey of death. Prior to the detonation the scientist team debated on whether the detonation reaction would cause the entire Earth atmosphere to explode. And they did it anyway. The military industrial complex does not care and will set fire to the very atmosphere to destroy the enemies and fulfill order. This is important to know for it reveals where the experiment comes from and notes further that nuclear experimentation destroys the right to self-defense. The dangers of nuclear detonation belittle all attempts of self-defense directly if anywhere near a would be blast zone. And the dangers of the rest of radioactive elements routinely leaked from power generation experiments and ‘storage’ indirectly pierce and maim, as does the stew released from depleted (more accurately, reignited) uranium weaponry.

Recently, President Trump, an oligarchical collectivist of the highest order long before his presidency, proposed to further subsidize the mine, refine, burn oligarchical model of the nuclear and coal power industries. The proposal would continue funneling money into subsidizing the infernal coal and nuclear power generation industries. He and the leader of North Korea also met towards peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea is positive as well. However it seems only nuclear and ballistic capability got them a seat at the table. If there is peace, then praise is certainly due. However how much longer should the entire planet be reliant on the responsibility and restraint of nuclear leaders?

The Fukushima event, at a six reactor experimentation site, is the worst environmental disaster ever. It also is a window into the happenstance of nuclear experimentation. The event continues to remove the inherent ability to defend ourselves releasing a stew of burning elements that our biology cannot deal with effectively without remediation. The stew is being released directly into the Pacific Ocean. When radioactive elements make contact with ocean water or any water that is not of the highest purity and especially ocean water, it reacts and turns into more and more, smaller and smaller pieces. This is from where nuclear industrial jive talkers get the idea that the ocean will dilute Fukushima radiation releases. In fact there is no diluting radiation in this case, it is more accurately dispersal of radiation.

And yet who would know? Soon after the Fukushima event Japan enacted the Secrecy Law and since then everything related to Fukushima news is government sanctioned – or else. This is eerily similar to the way the nuclear experiment has operated since its inception, and not so coincidentally is exactly how the USA government has approached the subject specifically of and relating to depleted (more accurately, reignited) uranium weapons, and of course nuclear detonation weapons. Militaristic institutions rule by way of controlling information. Democratic institutions work by releasing information. 

When exposed to radiation people can become lethargic and incapable of forming coherent thoughts –before being sickened. Take that truth and stack it on top of the truth that nuclear experimentation developers continued and approached the experiment that the problem pertaining to disposal and storage of waste would be solved by more intelligent people in the future…

On top of a degraded environment in total, increased toxins threatening all life present and future and on top of forcing abandonment of whole regions nuclear experimentation results in:


Less peace

Less ability to defend self and others

Less freedom of speech

Less individual liberty

More institutional dependence

More militarism

More oligarchical institutionalized energy

Increased apparent stupidity due to radiological exposure





Despite the fact that radiological exposure inhibits the ability to think critically it is obvious the reason we think little about nuclear experimentation and about most anything of substance and importance is more because of political induced apathy, rather than radiation induced stupidity. The political steering is as obvious as the assumed impacts of The Secrecy Law in Japan and of the US Presidents all supporting nuclear experimentation, or as subtle as irradiated elements themselves.

The world needs to unite to denuclearize. Due to nuclear experimentation itself the world needs to come together to end the experiment.
