The headlines today are shocking, that the U.S. has indicted 12 Russians in 2016 hacking.
These people may be guilty or they may be innocent, I have no idea.
But what I do know is we risk reigniting the Cold War, and it could lead to an accidental nuclear war.
And if accidental nuclear war happened, it would be a medical and public health crisis of massive proportions and could lead to the extinction of human beings. As Drs. Jim Muller, John Pastore, and recently I wrote in an op-ed in our Op-Ed in the Boston Globe:
The relation of massive nuclear destructive force to national security requires such a change in human thinking that our leaders will not be able to bring us to safety without broad public support. It is time, with the help of an informed citizenry, to address not just the symptom but also the underlying disease: the existence of thousands of legal nuclear weapons threatening billions of innocent civilians.
In other news, it’s a beautiful Saturday day here in Boston. The birds are chirping and I feel lucky to be alive. I want to share some music from my friend Leonardo Aguilar.
