BRACERS Record Detail
To access the original letter, email the Ready Division.
Attached is BR's dictated "Synopsis of Reply to Gladwyn".
BR responds to Gladwyn's arguments against the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation "one by one".
I) "You point out that the danger of a nuclear war between Russia and the West is less now than it was a few years ago. As regards a direct clash between NATO and the Warsaw Powers, I agree with you that the danger is somewhat diminished. On the other hand, new dangers have arisen."
II) "As to Western unity: your letter seems to imply that unity is to be achieved by all countries of the West blindly following one policy. Such unity does not seem to me desirable."
III) "You find fault with me on the ground that I seem to hold the West always to blame and the Soviet Union always guiltless. This is by no means the case."
IV) "You say, I emphatically agree with you, that what the world needs is less fear and more love. You think that it is to be achieved by the balance of Terror.... Do you really consider that this is a way to promote love?"
There are bracketed notes for "R.S." to supply information.
