“Puoi conoscere il cuore di un uomo già dal modo in cui egli tratta le bestie”

 Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)

“With nuclear weapons, you’d think you would probably stop after killing 100million. Smallpox won’t stop. Because the population is naïve, and there are no real preparations. That, if it got out and spread, would be a larger number… … Should the world be serious about this? It is somewhat serious about normal classic warfare and nuclear warfare, but today it is not very serious about bio-defence or natural epidemics… ...They do tend to say ‘How easy is it to get fissile material and how accurate are the plans out on the internet for dirty bombs, plutonium bombs and hydrogen bombs? “They have some people that do that. What I am suggesting is that the number of people that look at bio-defence is worth increasing.

Bill Gates

“Most people have forgotten how to live with living creatures, with living systems and that, in turn, is the reason why man, whenever he comes into contact with nature, threatens to kill the natural system in which and from which he live.” 

Konrad Lorenz (1903-1989)

“Between animal and human medicine there are no dividing lines – nor should there be. The object is different but the experience obtained constitutes the basis of all medicine...”

Dr. Rudolf Virchow (1821-1902) 

“BW [biological warfare] is a special weapon, with implications for civility of life that set it apart from many other kinds of violence.”

“...the intentional release of an infectious particle, be it a virus or bacterium, from the confines of a laboratory or medical practice must be formally condemned as an irresponsible threat against the whole human community.” 

Lederberg J., 1999, Epilogue, in Lederberg, J., ed., Bio- logical weapons: limiting the threat: Cambridge, Mass., MIT Press, p. 321–329) mentioned in Friend 2006.

The world really is just one village. And our tolerance of disease in any place in the world is at our own peril.

Joshua Lederberg (May 23, 1925 – February 2, 2008)
