The Conscientious Man and the Bomb

The Conscientious Man and the Bomb

In the Public Square: Remembering that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed on August 6th and 9th respectively in 1945, Host John Snyder, Alexandra Berauer and David Llewellyn discuss the development and history of the atomic bomb, the military necessity of nuclear weapons and moral objections and the arguments in favor of the use of the bomb. Was the use of these weapons on Japan morally defensible? The In the Public Square team discuss the legal, cultural and historical arguments for and against—and even sing a song: The Merry Minuet.
