Narrator: Umehara participated in the government’s reconstruction design council.
Japanese Philosopher Takeshi Umehara: [...] Actually, I’d call it a civilization disaster. Our civilization is met with disaster.
What is this civilization? It uses nuclear power to enrich human life and make it convenient. That’s the civilization that’s met with such disaster. I consider this a judgment on our whole present civilization. How shall we respond to this judgment against our civilization?
