What is all comes down to is that those who are against captivity understand that these beings are highly intelligent creatures and would prefer freedom at any cost over incarceration; while those who support captivity feel that the emotions of the cetaceans are irrelevant.

Comment on Censorship by r j c http://blog.darkstardust.com/2011/12/26/censorship/#comment-126 Mon, 26 Dec 2011 15:26:36 +0000 http://blog.darkstardust.com/?p=314#comment-126 Further to my note above, I figure (like you it seems) that well-meaning people worry: “oh no if YT shows animal abuse videos it will encourage more to do it!” But people are already doing it; always have done; there’ll always be some psycopaths who do so and especially if they think they can get away with it. It’s only the truly idiotic psychopath who would post a video of something they’ve done. In any case, the best thing we have to combat evil acts/deeds/people is to be able to expose it in the light. Like you point out, it woud be a major bonus to animal-abusing industries if we could no longer expose them.

Comment on Censorship by r j c http://blog.darkstardust.com/2011/12/26/censorship/#comment-125 Mon, 26 Dec 2011 15:13:43 +0000 http://blog.darkstardust.com/?p=314#comment-125 I totally agree. Censorship is bad – making it so we cannot “see the evil” (like disabling our ability to post videos of abuse, which exposes abusers and raises public awareness and may lead to some justice) just empowers the evil to flourish.

No sentient being wants pain: all wants happiness instead.” – Dalai Lama

“It all comes down to pain and suffering. Not intelligence, not strength, not social class or civil right. Pain and suffering are, in themselves, bad and should be prevented or minimized, irrespective of the race, sex, or species of the being that suffers.” – Joaquin Phoenix | quote from EARTHLINGS

“A time comes when silence is betrayal.” – Martin Luther King

“To me, you’re either an activist or an inactivist.” – Louie Psihoyos | quote from The Cove
