We turn tonight to the subject ‘This Shall be the Plague.’ And we see the great and tremendous events that are now shaking the world and the situations that are also facing the people of the world. And we try to find a situation that relates to survival and to every individual. There are many things that people do not think about. And when they do not think about them, they are not disturbed by them. We have been toying with the word ‘brinkmanship. This word came into being in the days of Mr. Dulles. We have been on the edge before, we have been told, and this all depends on what we have been told. And we have been saturating the enemy with tapes and then we can be assured that they took the reaction that we wanted them to take. Of course there is nothing to assure you of this at all. We are told that because Russia did not hit us the day after with a nuclear bomb, then they guess, that they aren’t going to do it. After all, that is a strange game to play if we thought that she was going to do it. If we had any idea that we were going to be hit with a nuclear bomb, we should not be at war with the Viet Cong.
And This Shall Be The Plague
