ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's perspective on the mythology of the atom and its connection to the nuclear disarmament in the U.S. He points that the answer to the problems in nuclear warfare is to be found within the area of nuclear weapons. He also notes premises to these problems which include the maintaining of powerful nuclear and conventional forces with delivery systems to prevent nuclear war, and putting an end to arms competition through a negotiated program of disarmament with the Soviet Union.
