Get Mad About Nuclear Madness

Author: 

https://worldbeyondwar.org/get-mad-about-nuclear-madness/ By David Swanson, September 24, 2022 Remarks in Seattle on September 24, 2022 at https://abolishnuclearweapons.org I am so sick and tired of wars. I’m ready for peace. What about you? I’m glad to hear it. But pretty much everybody is for peace, even the people who think the surest way to peace is through more wars. They have a peace pole in the Pentagon, after all. I’m pretty sure they ignore it more than worship it, although they do make a lot of human sacrifices for the cause.

By David Swanson https://davidswanson.org/riotsville/ A preview of the film “Riotsville” is here. There’s a good review of the film here, and another here. In the late 1960s, the U.S. military built a fake town called Riotsville (or a fake “inner city” actually) on the Fort Belvoir base in Virginia, and then another at Fort Gordon in Georgia — the same state where the Atlanta police are now working on the construction of an enlarged, updated, high-tech Riotsville commonly called “Cop City.”
