84.07 Hi-Tech Militarism

We enclose a reprint with this title from the Nuclear Free Press Summer 1983. A subsequent Issue 20/Winter 1983-84 carries a follow-up article describing recent high-technology developments in conventional weapons. The Pentagon with its usual inimitable turn of phrase says: “a nuclear freeze is survivable” — meaning of course not that we shall survive but that the militarization of society will escalate at an even faster rate if we control nuclear but not conventional weapons.

Canada is committed to high technology research and development like other industrial nations. Science for Peace has the responsibility to alert Canadian scientists to the dangers of perversion of this enterprise through applications to high-tech. militarism. (EF)
