To think that a nation possessing nuclear weapons will never be provoked to use them is a delusion. The existence of weapons of mass destruction means the probability of human extinction or at least the end to life on Earth as we know it. I want a better future for my children. Here’s a quote I thought very poignant by the German philosopher Karl Jaspers, “We can enjoy the happiness of existence in the interim granted to us. But it is a last respite. Either we avert the deadly peril or prepare for the catastrophe… Today we stand poised on the razor’s edge. We have to choose to plunge into the abyss of man’s lostness, and the consequent extinction of all earthly life, or to take the leap to the authentic man and his boundless opportunities through self-transformation.” We have the power through individual self transformation to change the course of history. We can choose to fight for a future filled with hope or we can live in apathy and delusion and think that war and destruction will never happen to us. I choose hope!
