The more we attempt to insulate our kids from death, the more they grow up without understanding the permanence to consequences to actions. I am not suggesting they view torture, yada yada yada…but do you ever wonder why the kids that are introduced to the “natural path” at the youngest ages tend to be the most responsible with regard to violence and crime? (partying and adolescent brawls aside, I am talking serious) it’s because they get the permanence of consequences some of your serious actions have.
I vote a clear destruction of culture and tradition. Nature is cruel herself, often more cruel than anything we humans can dream up: anybody who tells you different is somebody who has never spent much time in nature or atudying it. Ie–a desk jockey hippie.
I will say that even though I side against the bans, I understand the concept of banning bullfighting…on TV (or having a minimum age to view)…since in a hunt the fox is not taunted and stabbed in non-deadly ways for time on end before a final coupe de grace. [/quote]
Ok, are you for the killing of people for sport as well? If your not, how can you justify the killing of animals. I don’t give a rats ass about some countries culture. If their culture was killing newborn babies, would that be destroying their culture also, if we banned it. you simply can not justify the murder of innocent beings. People say, "well, we kill alot of animals for food anyways, mine as well let the slaughter bulls and foxes. Ummm, 2 wrongs don’t make a right. Both are wrong. I can understand if you live in the mountains somewhere and you need to kill to survive, but in modern society, its simply not necessary. And whether you guys like it or not, in the coming years more and more bans of animal abuse is coming. So get ready.
If I go deer hunting and make venison jerky I will go to prison for that?[/quote]
sooner or later all forms of sport hunting will be banned. it started with the banning of killing whales it has moved to many other species. its not going to stop and thank god for that.
