2019 marks the 70th anniversary of Mutually Assured Destruction. On the 29th August 1949, the United States and the USSR faced each other with weapons capable of ending human life. In fact, the Soviet arsenal alone was capable of killing 22,000 million people. But there were only around 4,000 million to kill. This awful shadow, or what Elaine Scarry called a “vast structure of cruelty”, has been part of our lives since then.
