Cannot help mention that, but for the atom bomb, our World to-day would have been very different. Democracy would have disappeared, back to ‘might is right’.
I lived through the second World War years, the contempt for other nations that Germany and Japan had needed to be seen to believe. To-day the constitutions of both these countries have a declaraton that they will never, ever, rear an army or go to war with any other nation. I can see a different world to-day, where, mostly, reason prevails, debates have a place, dissent is permitted. All this change resulted from the dropping of the bomb in Hiroshima.
Our mythology is full of such instances where The Lord incarnates to destroy evil forces to restore some kind of equilibrium in society, kind of checks and balances. The ‘bomb’ was one such.
