Peace Or Atomic War - Albert Schweitzer

     Peace or Atomic War is a collection of radio broadcasts written by Albert Schweitzer, the famed medical missionary, theologian, and philosopher. In them, he shows the stupidity and danger of the continuing nuclear arms race and nuclear experimentation going on during the early Cold War. The broadcasts go into the effects that such continued experimentation could have, and the danger it poses to human life everywhere. Schweitzer also goes further to recommend disarmament, but argues that do so would require a drastic human development: Humans must develop a new "spirit" of trust and brotherhood, which will be achieved by people realizing that it is the only way to future progress and prosperity. However, in his words, "It can only come if the awareness of its necessity suffices to give us strength to believe in its coming." Inspiring and truthful words, though sadly, humanity has yet to embrace them.
