The two greatest threats to world peace are nuclear weapons and criminal terrorism. The challenges humanity faces to dispel fear and to build trust must be undertaken because of these things. Nuclear weapons don't have to be used. People who think surprise murder of innocents is somehow justified must be re-educated. All of this is part of an effective strategy for peace. It must be ongoing and tireless.

Bok makes is a clearly written and powerful argument for ways to work for peace. I'd like to see an updated version, and will be looking for more of her work.
