Death is a reality. Men should be conscious of thatreality. I say men, because the willingness to die fora cause is most likely inherent to our sex. We (theman) were hunters running after wily beasts, andnature most likely gave us the cruel gift to becontentedly conscious of our fate ( the jaws of theprehistoric predator before us!)If the soldier can imagine his enemy to be the beast,then perhaps he can die with this intrinsic honor. Throw total war away, leave the unprepared civilianbe.
The death of a civilian, bombarded by the atomicbomb is beyond all wrongs. The atom bomb is amanipulated force, the product of the human mind,misdirected to defile humanity and naturesimultaneously. It gives the victims no time toprepare their life for their sudden exit, or worse, fora life tortured by atomic mutilation and shame. Maya human be granted a death of peace, or at least,one of honor? The soldier has been forced to accept his role. Heis fighting for his nation, against another nation,which is his enemy and he, perhaps, can perceiveas evil. Perhaps he has considered his death.
Thiswill give him honor in that death, an otherwise emptydestination. Let they who do not wish to be heroes or enemies,be. It is indeed morally wrong to end a war by killingcivilians, regardless of whether their lives will savethe lives of soldiers. To save our American soldiers these bombs werehurriedly created by physicists under the guidanceof Oppenheimer. Later he would refer to it as the”scientists sin”. Perhaps all of human civilization is an atom bomb.
We harness nature, in order to destroy both it andourselves. Yet nothing in our civilization is as overtas the atomic bomb. Who are these moralists? These moralists whobear objective truth? There is no truth? The atombomb is natural? It is in our nature to destroyourselves? So it is inevitable that we would forgethe bomb, that our destructive nature would reachfor the golden apple. But what is it? Its a vile apple with worms and rotand dripping poison. We annihilated two cities filledwith human civilians,( not living in a democracy, butunder an emperor, with no influence on thegovernments decision to bomb Pearl Harbor), for agolden bomb.
It wasnt gold. The United Stateswould not extend an apology years after the fact. Anapology would mean nothing. But the absence of anational apology leaves one wondering if we stilljustify Hiroshima? There is no honor in the bomb.
Itis not gold. The atom bomb is not just. The bombingof Hiroshima was immoral beyond justification.BibliographyLifton, Robert and Greg Mitchell, Hiroshima inAmerica, NY:1995, Avon BooksHershey, John, Hiroshima NY:1995, Avon BooksCategory: History
