  Thanks THH, I read about this man, whom of course we will never meet. He went by his own thoughts instead of indoctrination by a system that was just as bad as any other side. A beautiful, thoughtful and brave human being.

Thank you, Stanislav Petrov.

Petrov died on 19 May 2017 from hypostatic pneumonia, though it was not widely reported until September.
