Planetary security

We feel that we must have weapons to protect ourselves from weapons of the enemy. This fear legtimizes the development and stockpiling of new weapons and results in the election of public officials who will not hesitate to use violence. This, in turn, attracts the warrior to politics, and reinforces his belief that military might is the best assurance of security. If the public were convinced that there were real, viable alternatives to war, such figures would lose their mandate. Therefore, it is vital that a new concept of security is formulated, which puts earth and its inhabitants first.
— Dr Rosalie Bertell
