If a nuclear war--so far unknown--should happen in our time and leave as its aftermath most of mankind dead and much of the planet devastated, nobody should complain about such a result. Everybody had years of warning but its deterrent effect was too small against immense stupidity, indifference, cruelty, short-sightedness, and wishful thinking. Neither the memory of past agonies (in two world wars) nor the imaginary picture of coming ones would then have been strong enough to teach us the dreadful lesson.
