Structural, Environmental, and Nuclear Violence: One World or None

Our Truth and Restoration Town Hall, “Structural, Environmental, and Nuclear Violence: One World or None,” took place on Saturday, November 20, from 11:00 am – 12:30pm ET.

You may recognize from the subtitle, “One World or None,” the famous book that Albert Einstein, H.H. Arnold, J.R. Oppenheimer, and others brought together 75 years ago as they launched a project for our collective survival in the Atomic Age. It later became the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, which sets the Doomsday Clock every year. We are now at 100 seconds, the closest humanity has been to its doom since the creation of the Clock in 1947. The World Mental Health Coalition now declares our era “the Psychological Age,” where a correct understanding of our own psychology and mind will be critical in determining whether humanity will perish or persist.
