This is the shame of Japan. Again, hundreds of dolphins were slaughtered in Taiji. For how long will Japan shame itself amongst nations as being the only country to allow the cruel mass murder and hunting of dolphins, an intelligent mammal that does no harm to humans? This is sickening. Please do not pretend it is a valued culture. It only started recently, it did not start 400 years ago. It is driven by greed and violence. Do not defend it. If something is wrong, then it is time to improve your behaviour and move onwards to a better future. This is not a case of the West attacking Japan, it is a case of your fellow humans showing you that something you are doing is evil. Stop the posturing. Stop the pretending. Stop trying to divert blame elsewhere. Do the right thing. We beg you.
