A total nuclear freeze is counterproductive -
especially now,
when technology is rapidly changing and the Soviets
have some important strategic advantages.
- Herman Kahn


 

Nuclear war is such an emotional subject that many
people see the weapons themselves as the common enemy of humanity.
- Herman Kahn

Because of new technologies, new wealth,
new conditions of domestic life and of international relations,
unprecedented criteria and issues are coming up for national decision.
- Herman Kahn

My guess is that nuclear weapons will be used sometime
in the next hundred years,
but that their use is much more likely to be small
and limited than widespread and unconstrained.
- Herman Kahn

Deterrence itself is not a preeminent value;
the primary values are safety and morality.
- Herman Kahn

World War I broke out largely because of an arms race,
and World War II because of the lack of an arms race.

Human and moral factors must always be considered.
They must never be missing from policies and from public discussion.

Failures of perspective in decision-making can be due
to aspects of the social utility paradox,
but more often result from simple mistakes caused by inadequate thought.

- Herman Kahn

Nuclear weapons are intrinsically neither moral nor immoral,
though they are more prone to immoral use than most weapons.
- Herman Kahn

Anything that reduces war-related destruction should
not be considered altogether immoral.
- Herman Kahn

The objective of nuclear-weapons policy should not
be solely to decrease the number of weapons in the world,
but to make the world safer - which is not necessarily the same thing.

Many people believe that the current system must inevitably
end in total annihilation.
They reject, sometimes very emotionally,
any attempts to analyze this notion.
- Herman Kahn

I am against the whole cliche of the moment.
- Herman Kahn

It is immoral from almost any point of view to refuse
to defend yourself and others from very grave and terrible threats,
even as there are limits to the means that can be used in such defense.
- Herman Kahn

For some years I have spent my time on exactly these questions -
both in thinking about ways to prevent war,
and in thinking about how to fight, survive,
and terminate a war, should it occur.
- Herman Kahn

A healthy and fully functioning society must allocate
its resources among a variety of competing interests,
all of which are more or less valid but none of which
should take precedence over national security.
- Herman Kahn

Hopefully, nations will refuse to accept a situation
in which nuclear accidents actually do occur,
and, if at all possible, they will do something to
correct a system which makes them likely.
- Herman Kahn

To the extent that these advanced weapons or their
components are treated as articles of commerce,
perhaps for peaceful uses as in the Plowshare program,
their cost would be well within the resources available
to many large private organizations.

order or mankind would be destroyed in the process.
- Herman Kahn

and if they acted on that conviction,
then billions of others might be deprived of any realistic
hope of gaining the opportunities now enjoyed by the more fortunate.
- Herman Kahn

Projecting a persuasive image of a desirable and practical
future is extremely important to high morale,
to dynamism, to consensus, and in general to help the
wheels of society turn smoothly.

attention to the possibility of a thermonuclear war,
to ways of reducing the likelihood of such a war,
and to methods for coping with the consequences should
war occur despite our efforts to avoid it.
- Herman Kahn

The widespread diffusion of nuclear weapons would make many nations able,
and in some cases also create the pressure,
to aggravate an on-going crisis, or even touch off
a war between two other powers for purposes of their own.
