On Nuclear Proliferation

A group of people with a stockpile of nuclear weapons (and other weapons of mass destruction, no doubt) has not the moral authority to dictate to other groups of people about possessing nuclear weapons. I don’t know if the small group of people known as the “government of Iran” seeks to create nuclear weapons or not, but the small group of people known as the “United States Federal Government” is not in a possession to forcefully prevent them from doing so. If one group of people wants to argue that another group of people should not possess or seek to possess nuclear weapons, then they should first demonstrate their commitment to nuclear disarmament by destroying their own nuclear weapons. It’s the height of hypocrisy to demand others stop doing what one is not willing to stop doing. And that’s today’s two cents.
