Come hear David's advice about how to deal with the continuing threat of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, based on his decades of advocacy, research, and government service:
* Build a world of enforced law;
* Build the global democracy needed to keep law enforcement accountable; and
* Elect local representatives to a security congress of municipalities that the nations will have to listen to and that will undermine terrorists in their home towns.

Doom is foretold in endless Armageddon novels and films. Americans are apprehensive, but they are settling for victimhood. They conceive of themselves first and foremost as a nation, but nations today are not what they need to be when it comes to protecting their populations. Nations have more on their minds than saving lives - weapons, profits, glory, politics, are the stuff of nations, even before human security.

It is time for the targeted populations of the world to make common cause, not huddle down while nations pursue arms races with missiles and nuclear weapons. The alternative to huddling down? Get the political power that is accessible through cities and towns.
