The Call To International Disarmament (Revised)

The Call To International Disarmament (Revised)

. . .


Today, October 19th 2011, I call for international disarmament: The dismantling of all existing nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, and the cessation of their production and testing.

To any and all nations possessing such weapons: Disarm, and lead the way.  To any and all individuals and companies involved and invested in their manufacture: Redirect your resources and intelligence to technologies that sustain and improve quality of life, not technologies designed to devastate the human population. 

Long enough has the anxiety of mutually assured destruction hindered international relations.  It is time to move forward.  It is time to write a new chapter in which this costly and fruitless enterprise is abandoned, and thereby build trust among nations.

"In January 2006, Norway announced last month that it has stopped investing, via its state pension fund, in seven companies which it says are involved in the production of nuclear weapons as those activities “violate fundamental humanitarian principles,” the BBC reported."  Bellona, 06/02-2006
