Since Japan is one of the USA's most trusted allies, I wish our government would have a persistent, public conversation with them about the whaling violations.

If this involved Putin and Russia we'd hear about the bad actors on a daily basis.

Shouldn't there be an alternative to whaling by now?

Surely there must be something else that could replace the "products" they take from them.

I know that until there are,nothing is going to change(in that supply meets demand kinda way).

That's like saying you abide by the Declaration of Human Rights and then drone innocent people so you can get one guy.

The human race won't be happy until there's nothing left to ruin, nothing left to mine or pump, and nothing left to endanger or kill.

In way too many respects, we are not good at managing our resources.

Ethics and logic have been dropped in the pursuit of money.
