Brocker I 290
Diplomacy/Morgenthau: Morgenthau finds the safest conceivable method of permanently preventing war in the gradual development of statehood on a global scale. For the time being, it will remain a system of sovereign nation states. Against this background, says Morgenthau, realistic decision is called for, in other words: the return to a foreign policy that promotes one's own interests but absolutely prevents war. Their most important instrument is diplomacy. On the last pages of Politics Among Nations there is not only a regress from the necessary to the possible, but also a bridge from the analytical to the practical. (1)
Brocker I 291
Even the best diplomacy will never be able to bring about the structural changes of its own accord that the destructive potential of modern technology so urgently demands. (2)
