The Radical Sheen

From the days when traditional Catholics were not knee jerk nationalists:

      ‘See how much the world has changed? Now, what made it change? I think maybe we can pinpoint a date: 8:15 in the morning, the sixth of August, 1945… It was the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima in Japan. When we flew in the American plane over this Japanese city and dropped the atomic bomb on it, we blotted out boundaries. There was no longer a boundary between the civilian and the military, … between the living and the dead.¬†For even the living who escaped the bomb were already half-dead. So we broke down boundaries and limits, and from that time on, the world has said, “We want no one limiting me.” ‘
