Slaughtering Whales As an Expression of National Culture
If you listen to the Japanese government and the whaling industry lobby it serves, whales are plentiful and, besides, whalers are merely exercising a cultural prerogative. Sure. It’s kind of like origami or flower arranging, only you use an explosive charge packed into a harpoon tip.
Of course, using the word “culture” is a smokescreen anyway. This isn’t about culture. Like almost everything else in the world that stains the human spirit, this is about greed.
It’s just an Expression of National Culture. How many evil deeds are being commited in that name around the world!?!
