A Quote by B. F. Skinner on behavior, change, control, environment, holocaust, nations, needs, people, pollution, population, and war

Better contraceptives will control population only if people will use them. A nuclear holocaust can be prevented only if the conditions under which nations make war can be changed. The environment will continue to deteriorate until pollution practices are abandoned. We need to make vast changes in human behavior.
