Saying "yes" to Hiroshima

The contemporary West is built, not on Auschwitz and Treblinka to which we have said 'No’, but on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to which we have said 'Yes.’

What will you do?

You have asked me what I would do and what I would not do. I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe whether it calls itself my home, my fatherland or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of art or life as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use - silence, exile and cunning.
- from A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
