Bertrand Russell Society Calls for the Elimination of Nuclear Weapons and Supports Lawsuit

Art: Arturo Espinosa

"The prospect for the human race is sombre beyond all precedent. Mankind are faced with a clear-cut alternative: either we shall all perish, or we shall have to acquire some slight degree of common sense. A great deal of new political thinking will be necessary if utter disaster is to be averted." = The pacifist Bertrand Russell appealed: "We deem it elementary that evil megalomaniac men's rash use of deadliest nuclear weapons to resolve their quarrels is both grave and not ecological. Therefore we beseech the world politicians to reflect and backtrack ere we finish nightmarishly."
