Got to agree about Feynman. What a marvelous human being. Perhaps the ones who worked on the bomb but didn't see it's horrible potential would qualify. Wasn't Teller a defender to the end?
Rockefeller? Whichever one it was (John D) who ordered his goons to fire on the striking workers at Ludlow?
It was John Sr who delighted in massacring strikers, especially Colorado miners. A marvelous fellow.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
