I already wrote earlier in the parallel russian blog in ZeroNet that they faced rejection of military equipment in the decentralized SSB Patchwork. The person then asks a question - "Is it really beautiful"? Well, my answer:
Human psychology is so arranged that we like it optimized. It does not matter in nature or technology. Therefore, we admire predators, for example, cats or dogs, despite the fact that they are murderers. We like birds, because they are extremely focused on the mission of the flight. And many people like military equipment, especially military aviation. Because this is a case of very strict optimization and calculation. It is beautiful.
