00:00:34 17:24:17 MCU Truman speaking, SOF: “Ignorance & its handmaidens, prejudice, intolerance, suspicion of our fellow men, breed dictators. And they breed wars. Civilization cannot survive an atomic war. Nothing would be left but a world reduced to rubble. Gone would be man’s hope for decency. Gone would be our hope for the greatest age in the history of mankind, an age which I know can harness atomic energy for the welfare of man & not for his destruction. And so we must look to education in the long run to wipe out that ignorance which threatens catastrophe. Intelligent men do not hate other men just because their religion may be different, or because their habits & language may be different, or because their national origin or color may be different. It is up to education to bring about that deeper international understanding which is so vital to world peace.”
