The methods of warfare are violently changing as science produces new and improved weapons at such a rate that the whole conception of war must be constantly adjusted. While no one can accurately predict what the future may bring, geographical facts suggest physical limitations to the activities of man. Malthus foresaw these limitations as they effect man's reproductivity. Similar limitations may also exist to man's ability to create destructions and survive.
