Oppenheimer.  The atomic bomb kept the peace for 50+ years, at least 
there were no "major" shooting wars for 50 years because no one wanted 
to risk a conventional war getting out of hand.  Probably the first time 
that a weapon was actually too terrible to use.

The free man owns himself. He can damage himself with either eating or drinking; he can ruin himself with gambling. If he does he is certainly a damn fool, and he might possibly be a damned soul; but if he may not, he is not a free man any more than a dog.
