If I were in charge of a national nuclear power program
But you're not. And there are valid security reasons, hence why such a debate must happen and not handwaved like you did there.

People in charge of these programs agree that the proliferation of nuclear weapons is a problem and that safeguards must be put in place to avoid... unsuitable use of civilian nuclear power. Why? Because — contrary to you and luckily for all of us — these people don't refrain from using their brains.

Downloading pdf of scientific books and articles from the latter of these websites is really awful and an immoral act that deprives the poor publishers from their absolutely deserved money considering the major contributions they provide to all scientific publications. It would be very uncool to download stuff for free there. Very. Uncool.

Tell us more about this sort of awful, immoral and uncool behavior.

Oh noes, we can't have this new technology, somebody somewhere might weaponize it!
(Other than ourselves, of course...)

And when it becomes known how to make a nuclear explosion using only fusion, with no fission stage to start it, what then?
