There is a dilemma, a burden of which writers are perhaps the only solution; how to pass on crucial knowledge, experience, warning, and memories of something vital and gigantic to distant generations to come?
And a secondary issue; how to know if we are over protecting our children, and where the line exists that should or should not be crossed?
How can a warning be given without teaching? And how can something be kept relevant in the minds of future children whereby their protection is assured?
How to protect by allowing attack?
And how to do these things without needless fear or panic? But what if controlled, limited fear is necessary?
I’m referring of course to Chernobyl and other catastrophic time bombs that will affect / harm people for many thousands of years.
International debate of worried people happening right now.
