  3. J. William Fulbright:

    It seems to me that it is these extremists who are advocating a soft approach. Their oversimplifications and their baseless generalizations reflect the softness of those who cannot bear to face the burdens of a continuing struggle against a powerful and resourceful enemy. A truly tough approach, in my judgment, is one which accepts the challenge of communism with the courage and determination to meet it with every instrumentality of foreign policypolitical and economic as well as military, and with the willingness to see the struggle through as far into the future as may be necessary. Those who seek to meet the challengeor, in reality, to evade itby bold adventures abroad and witch hunts at home are the real devotees of softnessthe softness of seeking escape from painful realities by resort to illusory panaceas.

  4. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Faith is the exoskeleton of success. 2. Selfishness creates abundance, which creates reality in the oblivion of nothingness. 3. The end of the world is a logical death from vicious, childish stupidity. 4. Everything turns into a technological formality, humanity into the politeness of hypocrisy, the technocracy of indifference, everything is the absolute emptiness of robotic consciousness. 5. The scenario of life is a scheme of life like a blueprint of a building, an abstraction of an illusory labyrinth of paradoxes, a space of dimensions of endless karmic confusion. 6. Life is a space of endless emptiness and illusions in it create an abundance of hallucinations and mirages of narcotic feelings of karmic cycles of déjà vu. 7. The way to the highest dimension of thinking is only through love. 8. 1. Life is a hypnosis of illusions. 2. A cry into emptiness, loneliness in the world of egoists, sensual suffering and emotional hell, from painful awareness, you die of awareness and resurrect differently, humility is like the death of a person in a straitjacket.

  5. Vipin Narang:

    The procedure for nuclear launch authority grants POTUS the sole authority to order the launch of nuclear weapons, none are, contrary to popular belief, in the nuclear launch chain of command. Therefore any 'safeguards' that could effectively prevent POTUS from exercising sole authority to launch nuclear weapons are either illegal or illusory.
