If the American government obtained a working time machine, what would they use it to do, for good or evil? What would happen?

    I suppose it would be highly dependent upon who was in control of it.

    Changing history significantly could have severe negative unintended consequences.  It would be foolish to attempt such things, like killing Hitler.

    Imagine someone went back and killed Hitler before he gained power.  Now imagine the German Communist Party gaining ascendency, and then allying with the Soviet Union to take over Europe.

    Changing things is tricky if the result is unknowable.

    The NY Post story was planted. The FBI has known about it for months now. It's fake. Rupert Murdoch owns the NY Post. It's a tabloid. You are not supposed to take it seriously.

    There isn't a good way to use a time machine. The permanance of consequence is our teacher.
