Introduction to Control of Armament

The monopoly of all effective weapons of destruction is an attribute of all contemporary governments. In the totalitarian dictatorships, however, which provide no legal means of effecting a change of government, popular revolutions, such as the uprisings that occurred in East Germany (now part of the United Federal Republic of Germany) in 1953 and in Hungary in 1956, have scant prospects of success. Tanks, flamethrowers, jet airplanes, and other weapons provide the totalitarian dictators with strong defense against revolution.” (1)
