Plant Security   [open pdf - 815KB]

"Also, we must look at the entire problem in the light of its detailed components, because it was only when we began to break down plant security in all its phases, into its detailed components, that we really began to understand that we had to take a more or less scientific approach. We cannot understand a problem, or begin to solve it, until we can see the differences between its various elements. Therefore, we must look at it as many an artist has to contemplate a great masterpiece. We see it from a distance so that we get the impression the artist wished to create; then, we step forward and look at it closely to see its detailed composition. This study that is being conducted today on this problem must be continued. I repeat that: it must be continued, because I am fully convinced that never again will we have the chance, or the opportunity, or the time to go through all the errors we went through during this war."
