ABSTRACT
The article argues that if the world is to avoid living under the shadow of nuclear weapons, then scientists from all countries must cease and desist from creating, developing, improving and manufacturing further nuclear weapons. The United States, lacking a superpower rival, has struggled to justify the existence of nuclear weapons and the large budget allocated for it. Rather than embrace its commitment to give up nuclear weapons, U.S. nuclear managers have sought to save themselves by turning to their oldest ally: fear.
