3.11 Miscellaneous Thoughts - We are all the Eichmann

Hannah Arendt, the political philosopher who defected to America from Nazi Germany, abd sit in the Eichmann trial, wrote that the following things.

Below, quoted from Stuart Hughes 'The Sea Change' (Harper & Row, pulished 1975) .

"Eichmann and his colleagues made a bizarre inversion of qualms. They could overcome the feeling pity for the physical pain by changing direction of the feeling toward around.

Instead of saying "I wonder what it was terrible that I did those people," they said, "in order to carry out the mission, and terrible things I had to see.

Eichmann, but only occasionally witnessed the atrocities, he certainly was touched to witness. but he didn't show - - like many others who also - instead of showing the normal reaction of pity, the pity is deserved, because of the extraordinary liability, but rather those who have such a position and that's got to convince himself. "

Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant installed in the first place of this, many errors occurred in the past and is "carried out atrocities," instead of, as a result, "nothing done in order to avoid cruelty and not taken "in that, is different.

Bizarre inversion of such qualms, in a bureaucracy where responsibility disappears in the hierarchy is possible to happen to everyone.

3.11 Miscellaneous Thoughts - bureaucracy

Since the accident of March 11, Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, the biggest points I wondered were, why TEPCO do not have capacity to converge accidents, why the Japanese government and the Committee of Nuclear Safety and Conservation coud not give proper guidance for the Tokyo Electric Power Co..

Of course, in almost over half of the northeastern region, they had to rescue the refugees, in addition to those bigs they had to rebuild the infrastructure, rescue the victim, also search for a body.

Nevertheless, Why?

Officials, of the nation where politic life went around to every corner of the country, how would they be so incompetent? Or bureaucracy is that when things go well is good but it is useless in an emergency? Alternatively, the real purpose of the bureaucracy might be a different thing than protecting the public?

3.11 Miscellaneous Thoughts - Fukushima Fifties

3.11 or later, I feel like that memories are vague.

Because, I forgot the news that after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, some workers remained there. I had squirreled the news away in the bottom of memory. Recently, I noticed it.

Search to find a separate article,I accidentally discovered the New York Times article. It was for the engineering team of 50 people remained in Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power.

At the time, it was talked about as Fifty People of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant" on overseas media.

But in my memory, it was the only news or somewhere NHK "left with some workers."
In addition, many people are pretty angry (likely me) that in the country the news of the engineering team of 50 people was not coveraged at all, but in fact, it have been reported.

In the Web edition there was an article of the Asahi Shimbun, TEPCO said on Wednesday 15, "due to the explosion in No. 2 in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, have personnel other than the workers irrigation to cool the reactor falls move to a safe place."

Because large amounts of radioactive material might spill, so have everyone evacuate and about 50 people leave, said.

According to the Sankei Shimbun, "(March) 15 today, in the Fukushima No. 2 nuclear power plant first, TEPCO employees and employees of partner companies are about 50 people" TEPCO said. "Increase the amount of exposure and will be replaced by the following units" that says.

So did not the mainstream media coverage, or imposed a blackout on news is not true. But then, what happened to these 50 people, do not know. Wewe these men of 50 that were working long after the accident at the nuclear power plant?
