How to redesign whaling. Virtual whaling, of course. Whaling video games would be more profitable and scientific than the real thing.

Whatever else is happening behind the scenes, these are popular local rebellions. People who protest have grievances. If the powers that be paid attention to them this business could be resolved with bloodshed.

Welcome to the world of Article 9. People have been born, come of age, lived full lives, grown old and died (alas too early) in a Japan that never once went to war. Today only the very old have known war. Everyone else, including Abe, have known only unending peace. Perhaps only the very old know how lucky people younger than themselves are.
In nearly 70 years, no Japanese has died fighting in a war and Japan has committed no war crimes. In exchange for the sour fruits of war Japan has developed a civilian economy that is the envy of the world and system of social welfare (in its widest meaning) that almost rivals the social democracies of Western Europe.
Now Abe, the bloody fool, wants to change all that.

The hand of Moscow stuff is much like the shrill John Birch rhetoric that defined anything the Birchers did not like as Communist inspired, be it the Civil Rights Movement or fluoridation. There is no proof right now that Moscow is in any way orchestrating these protests. What no one in the West's mainstream wants to admit is that these protests are popular revolts. Look at the demonstrators: people range from kids to grannies. People revolt not because someone tells them to but because they have grievances. If the latter day Birchites, including the US government and the media, would admit these are popular protests we could get around to asking the protesters what their issues are. In doing that it is very possible to initiate conflict resolution and create a state of affairs where everyone could walk away satisfied.

The Nobel Prize should be given the Japanese people because they have preserved Article 9. Only now do we have a rabid rightist PM wishing to destroy it. Giving the Nobel Prize to the Japanese people (and ipso facto the rest of us here) will inspire all of us here to respect Article 9 and fight to preserve it. The Nobel Prize will keep Abe in his place. It will show Abe the world loves Article 9.

Here is a fact that is not publicized. The Ukrainian government wants her arrested and tried because she declared that it came to power through unconstitutional means. Careful what you say if you are in Ukraine.

One reason not to commit crimes is not only getting caught at it. Your crimes can be brought up at any moment in any place for the rest of your life and after. Japan should be grateful that China only brought up the Rape of Nanjing. There were numerous other crimes against humanity committed by Japan in China. Unit 731 for example.
Suga thinks he is not a denier by playing the numbers game but he is. He want to somehow diminish the horror of the Rape of Nanjing by trying to reduce the number of victims. Holocaust deniers also play the numbers game.

What is "barbaric" is the big lies about this yearly slaughter being "scientific" and, on top of that, a part of Japan's traditional culture. This funneled into another big lie, that the dead whales were dying for a Higher Purpose: Science, slash, Culture. Well, there was no science. And certainly there was no high culture surrounding the growing stockpiles of whale meat that few people wanted to eat.
"Barbaric" is the incredible waste that whaling has created. Perfectly good whales killed. Stockpiles of useless whale meat. Huge expenses for taxpayers. The only thing "traditional" about Japanese whale is the pork barrel politics that promoted it.
And oh yes, since whales are full of dioxins eating whale meat is bad for you.
Shiver me timbers me hearties, the days of Moby Dick are over and done.
Posted in: Neither commercial nor scientific whaling have any place in the 21st century. This decision sends a clear message to governments around the world that the exploitation of animals will no longer be tolerated and animals must be protected at the highest level.

The court ruling stated what has been obvious to anyone who is not a complete idiot. It is commercial whaling that draws no profit from sale but only government handouts. There is an overflowing stockpile of whale meat. Few people actually want to eat it. And they should not eat it because it is full of dioxins. So will Japan now end this brutal farce?
