Why would they do that?

So why would they build those 6 nuclear reactors, including their now infamous MOX-plutonium reactor in one of the Earth's most seismically unstable locations; in a location where 3 tectonic plates come together in anger; in a place called Fukushima? That is the question on everybody's lips.

We can't ask the TEPCO boss. He's tucked up in hospital, said to be suffering from high blood pressure. We can't ask the 600 Fukushima workers down the nuclear chain of command. They and their families have been told not to say anything to the media, according to latest reports on RT the Russian satellite channel. Incidentally, those 600 workers have only been provided with personal radiation detectors for 300. That means that 300 of them don't even know how much radiation they are getting!

So who can we ask? (a) GE - the manufacturers? (b) The Japanese Government? (c) Ourselves?

The answer is (c) Ourselves. And that's because we have nothing to hide.

We, the people of the world, have sleepwalked into this. We are nuclear somnambulists. Alarm clocks having been ringing for years and we have ignored them. We have turned up the central heating and gone back to our dreams. Our dreams that need 2.5 Earth size planets. Sometimes an occasional nightmare wakes us up. But that's a small price to pay. We take another pill and nod off again.

So why did they do it? Why did they build them there, knowing it was only a matter of time before tragedy would strike?

Here's the one answer. It's the chief reason for wars, man made disasters and pestilences.

Their souls delight in their abominations. (Isaiah 66:3)

It gives me no pleasure to quote this piece of wisdom. But it is the truth. And the truth is important. There is a part of Man that is abominable.


  1. Too many parts of us, methinks, are abominable. *sigh*

  2. Agree one hundred percent. If the slate was wiped clean and we could all start again, our memories of wars, disagreements, religions all wiped away - we would soon be back like this. Human nature, sadly.

  3. Mike, thanks - we can but try!

    Pat, thanks also - interesting that you mention religion in connection with wars - yes, we often make wars about mystical belief systems instead of getting on with life - we're strangely unique in this way.
