“We Don’t Do That Anymore” – A Disarmament Ditty

If there is one cliché that I am tired of hearing in security and arms control circles, it’s “That’s the way the world works.” This is usually accompanied by condescension and/or mansplaining. But of course, “how the world works” changes all the time. I never thought you could put this ethos of humanitarian disarmament campaigning — things don’t have to be the way they are — to a tune, but The Burning Hell have done it! I present to you: “We Don’t Do That Anymore.”

Now I have all kinds of ideas. Perhaps now that Lin-Manuel Miranda has opened Hamilton (hip hop magic about historical wonkery), he could write us Cluster Bombs: The Musical.
