Quote, " "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed." A militarized world "is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children." Unquote.
