I’m having second thoughts about publishing a tell-all book.
Using violence I'm going to expose the truth! This is disclosure. This is exposure.
The reading for 暴 is strange and new, not what you learned with the kanji. Just think about how when there is disclosure or exposure of something, you are surprised. You can't believe that's the truth. You have to take a step back (ばく) to deal with the new information.
