    Although Daniel Ellsberg is best-known for his 1971 role in delivering the Pentagon Papers (the Top Secret Defense Department study of U.S. involvement in Vietnam) to the American people, he spent much of his 13-year career as a military analyst at the highest levels of the U.S. national security apparatus grappling with issues of nuclear war. Ellsberg reports that, “contrary to the cliché that `no nuclear weapons have been used since Hiroshima and Nagasaki,’ U.S. presidents have usedour nuclear weapons dozens of times in `crises,’ mostly in secret from the American public (though not from adversaries).” Ellsberg’s conclusion is stark, but follows logically from this evidence.  “Any social system that has created and maintained a Doomsday Machine and has put a trigger to it, including first use of nuclear weapons, in the hands of one human being―. . . still worse in the hands of an unknown number of persons―is in core aspects mad.  Ours is such a system.  We are in the grip of institutionalized madness.”

    Humanity is connected by common threats and shared benefits. You must also realize that nuclear weapons constitute a common threat and their destruction benefits us all. No matter if the country is large or small, a permanent arms or military economy offers no solution for the world’s biggest problems.

  • Russia and China have been arguing for years in the halls of the United Nations that the world needs a treaty to prevent stationing such weapons in outer space in order to maintain global “strategic stability” among the major powers and enable nuclear disarmament. Although the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 prevented the placement of weapons of mass destruction in outer space, it never prohibited conventional weapons in space.

The UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) provides a pathway for all nations to abolish nuclear weapons. All nations should take that path.
