“The H-Bomb exploded today, young man, but we condemn you just the same, even though you say you stole the wood to warm yourself. You might have been more easily acquitted if your case had not been called up last. Now it is late and we have little will to debate and so concur with the president, who has great respect for private property. And then in the brain crammed with images of extermination which the explosion evokes, your fate is no landmark.
“I suspect I am the instrument of a vendetta, at times the vendetta of one man against another man, at times of the above-mentioned against the rest of mankind, unarmed.”
