On Hiroshima and Emperor System  広島と天皇制

A political scientist Thomas Schelling once reasoned that Hiroshima had played a part to keep the long peace since WW2. The Emperor System, on the other hand, is thought to play almost the same part within the country. In this point there can be one thing that these two have in common: it is something that leads a pack of people into unity and order. It may be called 'fear' or something I don't know for sure. It is certainly by learning fear that we can learn nobility, importance of love, and how short life really is. No one is more scarey than those who don't know fear at all.
