The Aug. 15 editorial “Dangerous revisionist sentiment” shows excellent thinking. Yes, we should learn from history so we do not repeat it. And, maybe, just maybe, former Air Self-Defense Force Chief of Staff Toshio Tamogami is saying the same thing (when he calls upon Japan to arm itself with nuclear weapons to avoid a third nuclear attack).

Those powers wanted Japan to modernize and learn “civilized” ways. Japan not only learned them but improved on them! Maybe it’s time to re-examine our notions of who did what to whom and why and, in the Christian spirit, stop concentrating on someone else’s “mote in the eye.”

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
