Bernard Baruch Quote

Plan for international control of atomic energy:

We are here to make a choice between the quick and the dead. That is our business. Behind the black portent of the new atomic age lies a hope which, seized upon with faith, can work our salvation. If we fail, then we have damned every man to be the slave of fear. Let us not deceive ourselves. We must select world peace or world destruction.

The American plan for the control of atomic weapons became known as the Baruch Plan.

United Nations Atomic Energy Commission, June 14, 1946
