Linus Pauling: Now the time has come when war has to be abandoned as a means of settling disputes between nations, and replaced by law,
international law and justice. I am glad. I believe in morality. I abhor the immorality of war. I am glad that these great
bombs exist in the world. They prove to all of us that the time has come now when the evil of war has to be abandoned, and
I am confident that it is going to be abandoned, I am confident that we shall achieve disarmament, that we shall be able to
develop international law in such a way that the nations are governed by it. I am happy to think that our great nation, the
United States of America, will become a moral nation along with the other nations in the world, no longer relying upon the
immorality of war, but instead accepting the principles of morality, the ethical principles that have been taught by the great
religious and philisophical leaders and that are accepted by individual human beings. And I hope that as this change in the
nature of the world takes place, it will be our great nation, the United States of America, that takes the lead.
