The Sun Interview

Indefensible: David Krieger On The Continuing Threat Of Nuclear Weapons
“The path to security doesn’t lie in keeping a stash of nuclear weapons for ourselves and preventing other countries from getting any. . . . We cannot indefinitely maintain a world of nuclear haves and have-nots, and we cannot go attacking every country that we think might be on the path to making a bomb.”
By Leslee Goodman

“Note to self: don’t worry about your readers. Don’t worry about your reputation as a man with big ideas. You don’t feel big today.”

“The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.”

David Friedman

Erased Edges
Essay by Barbara Hurd
[March 2001]
“No places are more ambiguous than swamps and bogs. Their identities wander from solid to liquid, slosh back over the line between firm and yielding. . . . How did such a sloppy place get past the Creator?”
