is] today's technological development which has turned modern war into a suicidal
nightmare and which will put an end to war. This was already predicted by Kant,
who expected "perpetual peace" to be established not due to the moral perfection
of man but due to modern warfare, which would be so unbearable that mankind would
see itself forced to guarantee everlasting peace.
those who are in power today think beyond this day and consider the future of
mankind. Their responsibility is enormous. Today, an altogether new order can
be created for the benefit of all peoples. Short-sighted misuse of that power
can ruin everything.
