American Nuclearism

5 pages in length. The nuclear world is characterized by the dynamic interaction between nuclearism – the faith in the omnipotent power of the bomb as a source of salvation and nuclear fear – and the fear of explosive forces unleashed by this power. These two images interacted in the first half of the twentieth century, effectively leading most Americans to embrace the bomb, as well as support the idea of nuclear supremacy. Surmising that the pro-bomb consensus, which was developed in the first years after World War II, was driven by atomic power's hopeful and fearful images, people embraced its omnipotence with a combination of exhilaration and apprehension. The writer discusses that through its slick marketing tactics and diplomatic approach, the American government successfully manipulated both public hopes and anxieties about the bomb by building support for the pursuit of security through nuclear supremacy.
