Fishing for fun is terrorism.
It’s not the same as detonating a suicide vest in the middle of Tel Aviv, but it isn’t too far away either.
People can roll their eyes at this all goddamn day long but there’s no denying that a disregard for the suffering of anyone or anything that isn’t you is terrorism.
A difference of a degree of course, but where do we draw the line? Just turn on the news and see how we treat each other. With a little self reflection, it’s an undeniable slippery slope for sure.
This comes up today because there’s a fishing camp for kids at the lake I walk around in the morning. Everyone seems happy and the adult supervision is on point but what is this teaching the future adults of the world? That it’s okay to hurt animals for pleasure. That it’s okay to add suffering to the world. That it’s okay to treat others in a way they wouldn’t want to be treated.
Hence, turn on the news and see the state of the world.
Twenty points for a big fish? Ten for a turtle? Really? Listen up people, the whole world isn’t your fucking video game.
Or we’ll find our way onto the extinction list.
