Abstract / Summary
Rough notes for a speech, December 1962. Hutchinson writes of three unforeseen events after the formation of the UN: (World War II) alliance fell apart, the atomic age, and colonial revolutions. Writes of conflict over Berlin, Cuba, Korea, the Suez, and the Congo. Notes the financial repercussions of world conflicts. Notes that the US is afraid of an enlarged UN membership and one nation/one vote because there will be an Afro-Asian majority. Hutchinson questions: how to get on with disarmament? She also notes that an atomic test ban is not disarmament.
