UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres says humanity is “just one misunderstanding, one miscalculation away from nuclear annihilation.” Guterres said the world has been lucky but added, “Luck is not a strategy. Nor is it a shield from geopolitical tensions boiling over into nuclear conflict.”

Socionomists note that how people feel influences how they behave. Feelings are governed by social mood, which fuels the level of concern about the potential for nuclear war at any given time.
