"We have to recognize that the military and governmental policies that have created nuclear and other kinds of toxic contamination and kept them secret continue today, everywhere. They're not confined to Churchill County or Sand Springs Valley, but are literally global in scope ... We have become a drastically militarized society, and yet we seem to be unaware of this fact. In the meantime, the military is devouring our resources and talent, destroying the environment, and providing violent models for conflict resolution on both national and individual levels."
