Compared with the force of the all-powerful weapons that exist today, we are nothing, even less than ants. And yet those weapons were not made by demons or aliens from another planet. They were made by humans just like me and you. . . . If we ever press the red button, others will do the same. If we bomb them, bombs will rain on us. That’s cause and effect, and it will just go on and on. So what can we do? Only one thing can help us: loving-kindness. Loving-kindness is the very foundation of a civilised world.
