the motives behind such conflicting statements to guess who has the most to gain
from their prevarications: the scientists, who at the most can garner only a

which -- if it can play the proper chord of
fear and safety on its atomic
guillotine -- stands a chance of
maintaining the biggest, bestpaid murder organization in the
history of the world.

are destined to change life on ,,
this planet. This is data that r,ri
