Is Science Caused for War

The greatest enemy of mankind, as people have discovered is not science, but war. Science merely reflects the social forces by which it is surrounded. It is found that when there peace, science is construcive , when there is war, science is perverted to destructive ends.

The weapons which science gives us do not necessarily create war, these make war increasingly more terrible. Until now, it has brought us to the doorstep of doom. Our main problem, therefore, is not curb science, but to stop war and to substitute law for force,and international government for anarchy in the relations of one nation with another.

It should be the job of everybody. Everyone must participate, including the scientists. But the bomb of Heroshima suddenly woke us up to the fact that we have very little time. The hour is late and our work has scarcely begun.

Now are face to face with this urgent questions : " Can education and tolerance, understanding and creative intelligence run fast enough to keep us abreast with our own mounting capacity to destroy?" That is the question which we shall have to answer one way or the other in this genreration. Science must help us in the answer, but the main decision lies within ourselves.
