Reconciling Science With War

Ever since WWII with the dropping of the Atomic Bomb on two cities in Japan, we, the human race, have been placed in a great quandary.

It is easy to condemn those who make weapons of mass destruction, but it is we who have created this monster.

Do not condemn the scientist, young man. Condemn rather the laymen who cannot agree amongst themselves and as a result force us to play the part of destroyer.

War existed before science. The crime which is done now is that war has made a tool and slave of science, and man's knowledge, painfully and laboriously compiled, is made the instrument of man's destruction.
