In Remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am sorry that my recent speeches on Vietnam has cost us your support. However, I feel that war is no longer, if it ever was, a valid way to solve international problems. Even the negative good served by a war against an evil force such as Hitler can no longer be considered worth the costly risk to mankind, for the ultimate weapons of today mean only the destruction of mankind. Man can no longer afford war. We must find a non-violent way to settle the problems of the world. (Read the full letter here)


Thanks for UFPJ for the photo and the quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.  I remember thinking years ago, that the final death toll from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were still unknown, since there are still nuclear weapons available for humans to use.... and until they are totally gone, we will have that specter of total annihilation over our heads.  Furthermore, we have to get rid of nuclear power, since the technology for building nuclear power will get you about 90% of the way to building nuclear bombs. 

Violence is not the way to solve problems, and it never was.  And having enough bombs to wipe all human life off the planet is insane.
