Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane, LLP Invites Reflection and Dialogue on the Threat of Nuclear Weapons

 

Amidst military conflict between world powers, our minds stir uneasily with fears of nuclear warfare. While often they recede in times of peace, even then the specter of nuclear holocaust remains.  At their inception nuclear weapons seemed destined for eternal existence, and as they have proliferated in the decades since that notion has been reinforced to the point of becoming axiomatic.  Within this paradigm there arises the alarming fundamental question – accepting that we must co-exist with nuclear weapons, how do we stop the world from using them to destroy itself?

 

Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane, LLP believes that, despite the discomfort it may induce, we must ponder this question in earnest.  What mechanisms might nations employ to prevent the use of nuclear weapons?  Must they formulate a copious and delicate balance of economic or governance incentives and disincentives, and precisely how might they arrange such a structure?  Or is the optimal solution more straightforward?  MHTL intends to confront this issue meaningfully and generate thoughtful dialogue.  We will follow with further plans and ideas in this regard.  In the meantime we invite you to consider these issues and let us know your thoughts.
