The golden handcuffs prevent this. I have NEVER EVER worked knowingly for a Defense Department contract and eschewed all companies that could potentially put my code into a “death machine”. it has not been easy, but I have to look in the mirror. I have refused to write code that could be used to KILL people, but charting such a course has not been easy. I cannot judge too harshly those that were forced through economics to make a different choice.
