Issues like this sure bring out the cynicism in people.

Well, exactly. Dolphins are pretty smart, by most accounts, and one can imagine they suffer a much higher degree of mental anguish because of this. That's pretty much the idea, anyway. Not that tuna fish don't suffer physical anguish, but well, we assume they don't suffer the same degree of mental distress.

Pretty easy to not eat meat, if you feel bad for the animals then that's a valid feeling that shouldn't be thrown away imo.

i care about the dolphins but this is not just about the dolphins; what about the whales? i think this is a question of extinction. these animals are not being 'farmed' like cattle, sheep, chicken and whathaveyou; those fisherman do not own those dolphins or whales and they're not breeding them to replace the numbers they kill. eventually, they'll kill off all dolphins and whales. and then they'll move on to industrialising some other animal/s.

i think it's a bit sad that she's really made an effort to make a difference in the world and there are people out there who think she's just going through sort sort of phase. i truly applaud her, isabel and everyone else involved in the protest for taking action. even though it was a morbid scene to be in, i wish i could've been there to support the cause.

i'll end with this comment from isabel:
Quote:
“The worst part is that whales are probably all dead by now. We couldn’t save these whales but hopefully shining the light on their deaths will save others.”

It's hard not to be cynical though, because a lot of people think dolphins are better than other animals they consume which quite frankly, is really hypocritical. Yes, it's good that they make an effort but how long until she picks another cause and gives up on the dolphins. Probably not long.

If you're going to eat animals at all, don't be hypocritical about it. This sort of thing reveals so much cultural bias.

We should all take the time to educate ourselves in other cultures before just popping in to do whatever one feels like..... But I know, those Dolphins are sure cute! :p Nothing lives forever! Eventually the Dolphins will die, just like so many other species...and those other species weren't even touched by humans.

Aren't dolphins suppose to be smarter than monkeys?
