Dude, I guess your Kool-Aid says to trust in nothing. Fortunately, we no longer require flagmen to walk in front of automobiles to ward off pedestrians and horses. This, in spite of 10's of thousands killed in automobiles every year in the USA alone. Why? the risk/reward ratio favors it. Again, it is as illogical to automatically reject technological advances as it is to blindly trust it. And as for TMI, the whole thing was an ACCIDENT, caused by chance occurrences. It just so happened that this accident revealed a number of weaknesses in the physical plant and operating procedures that now made fission power plants MUCH safer. Internal combustion engines are "inherently unsafe", using your same criteria. It's so typical to see people eschew simple logic in order to push their personal agenda, and then try to marginalize people with better sense that disagree with them.
