What consequences were bad?

Prompt: In many ways we continue to mourn the losses experienced across the globe in World War II, which with the genocide of the American Indians and the Black Death ranks as one of the biggest cataclysms in human history. The war’s lasting imprint can be seen everywhere: from maps of the world to the drugs we take, from city skylines to town squares, and on and on. While most of the consequences are horrendous, there are some positive, lasting legacies (or at silver linings) that came out of that terrible ordeal as well.
Write an essay reflecting on the war’s consequences with respect to at least three of the following categories: demographics, world diplomacy, technology, medicine, geopolitics, and economics. What consequences were bad? Which ones were good? And can the good consequences outweigh the bad or, barring that, at least help prevent future tragedies as widespread as those experienced during WWII?
Be sure to incorporate Stein’s Family Papers into your answer, as well as ALL applicable lectures and posted documentaries.
