Jack Geiger's Message
approaching the half-century anniversary of a landmark event: the successful effort by a handful of
physicians and physicists to tell the somber truth that nuclear war was not
survivable, and to counter the false and dangerous military (and so-called
“civil defense”) promises that it was. The then-fledgling PSR and, later, International
Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War have continued that effort ever
cannot be just a celebration -- or a self-congratulatory acknowledgement of past
history. It is, equally, a warning and a challenge to a new generation of
medical students, residents and Physicians
to take up that challenge, to recognize that our planet is still awash in
nuclear weapons and the fuels to produce them, to know that the threat
has -- perhaps -- changed in form but remains as ominous as the acronym of the 1960s:
MAD. It is your task, now, to finish what we (and many others) began so long
ago: to lead the struggle to eliminate nuclear weapons and make a reality of another
1960s acronym: SANE, for the sake of humankind.
