I feel that, if that story could be widely discussed, and the
movie Casablanca could be seen by Russians and Americans,
together, communication that might make us all safer, and happier,
and richer, might come.
I think clergymen should read it, too, and people interested in
the arts and literature. There are things about the story that
"secular humanists" and people of all faiths, ought to be able to
think about together, and agree on. If we can't get agreement on
some matters as fundamental as this, we ought to be terrified
by current nuclear arrangements.
(If people knew more about the mathematics involved, they'd be
much, much, much more afraid, but that is a separate issue.)
We need to apply "the Golden Rule" to people as they are. It
we did, the world would be delivered from nuclear destruction. And
many of the ugliest aspects of our human condition in the world
might be adressable, by the people involved, as they actually are,
from where they are, step by step.
