Russell-Einstein Manifesto

The Lal Masjid case in Pakistan is a grim reminder to all of us regarding where humanity is heading at the moment. Religious extremism, war, economic disparity, injustice... people have no idea that how beautiful and happy this world could be, only if we could remove these obstacles.

On this day in 1955, the Russell-Einstein manifesto was issued, and it called for world leaders to seek peaceful resolutions to international conflict. Its words still offer us a hope:

"There lies before us, if we choose, continual progress in happiness, knowledge, and wisdom. Shall we, instead, choose death, because we cannot forget our quarrels? We appeal as human beings to human beings: Remember your humanity, and forget the rest. If you can do so, the way lies open to a new Paradise; if you cannot, there lies before you the risk of universal death."
