“Did the first amendment protect us from the atom bomb, or the nuclear arms race or Vietnam or Iraq? No, it didn't. Everybody kept their mouths shut.”
Daniel Ellsberg is the 90-year old whistleblower that leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971. Since the end of the Vietnam War, Ellsberg has been a lecturer, scholar, writer and activist on the dangers of the nuclear era, wrongful U.S. interventions and the urgent need for patriotic whistleblowing.
In this episode he joined Foresight’s Intelligent Cooperation group for a three hour long discussion on the ever-present risks of doomsday due to nuclear weapons.
