Orwellian Speak

Jean Shepherd, quoting a speech just given by Nikita Khrushchev:

” ‘I do not believe in God, but those who do have the moral duty to not build nuclear weapons.’  What he’s saying, in other words, is: I am an immoral person; therefore, whatever I do is moral. What you guys do is immoral, because you have morals.”

Sound familiar?

Track 2- 1963 04 25 Atomaniacs

My paternal Grandfather on the left; around 1910.

Update:  I think that’s maternal Grandfather, on the front right.
