Interesting - I didn’t know anything about this. Loved this quote:
“The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living.”
The speaker was not a famous professor or antiwar activist. It was five-star Gen. Omar Bradley, the World War II hero, speaking in 1948, shortly after the only time nuclear bombs were detonated in wartime. Sadly, his words ring even truer today.
