Thank you for your response.
First you ask me to show you about the money and true pet lovers, this one is easy.
Every granny/grandpa, or decent person will and do contribute to what they think are good causes, elderly people with retirement savings get hit by
these people first, because grannies and grandpas really do care. Then you have the euthanasia list, which you don’t have to argue with me about,
for I understand that many of the animals are in dire need of it after abuse. But many are not, and when homes aren’t found the act takes place.
“They hunted the seals for food and fur, to keep warm. The Inuit hunt accounts for only 3% of all seals killed”
With all due respect this is what I mean by how detached most are. The furs were to keep warm. Yes they did make leathers from some, and oils from fat
for light, and eat the meat. You are overlooking the biggest part, the fact that this is their currency in a barren land. Grain, medicines, art, fur,
meat, and friendly relations. This is the true story, while I’ll agree that many people hunt traditional lands that have no right to it, the Inuit
currency has been crushed, their trade routes gone. I am sure a McDonalds isn’t going to fix their problems.
PETA are rich, yuppie socialites who buy up add time/space, while there are always hard workers in causes like this. If PETA truly cared about
anything on this planet they would have been named themselves PETH, get it ? Whoever preaches to save something that has nothing to do with our fellow
man is a hypocrite, detached and disillusioned from reality.
I don’t see it that way, I see it as people thousands of miles away, watching from a TV or PC are going to voice their opinion. Go look it up, wiki
it, get your news where you may. It’s still only a stitch in fabric of these peoples live you would destroy to save a seal.
“Just try, for once, to put yourself in the shoes of the animal on the other end”.
I do put myself in their shoes, their meat, their fur and their lives. The part you’re not hearing is, we make sure they are not hunted to
extinction, but it also controls the population of “fish” eaters in the area, which makes up a huge part of Inuit diet. You do realize we live in
a food chain right? Our whole means of survival depends on the food.
Why is Africa not fed and wells of abundance drilled? Why are we killing people in foreign lands for “their” resources? Because WE my friends need
new TVs and new cars and toasters, where the hell is it supposed to come from? There’s no shadow government it’s us, the “chewers” the
consumers, we expand and conquer, we “take” what we need and want, instead of what is right and what we should be doing. This is why we are ruled,
we want to be.
This for me is the tip off the iceberg, if you want more questions I have millions so don’t tell me how ethical it is to starve and drive people
from their lands because you can’t stand the sight of how reality works.
