“US government is using nuclear weapons daily as a gun pointed at the head of the planet.”
Yet the threat of nuclear annihilation has not caught the imagination of the wider public as has the issue of climate change, important as that is. The evidence suggests we are nearer Armageddon now than during the Cold War. We must look to history for the answers. And remember it is ultimately humans not technology that causes war: rivalry for power that blindly leads nations into catastrophic conflict; the delusion that is pulling us towards world war three.
