In the materialistic world today, whaling seems to become a norm to the society as it happens around us in the world everyday. In Japan, it was defined as “Japanese Whaling” and it begun in the 12th century. Whaling is an activity that people hunt whales from the sky blue ocean to make profits from it, use them for research purposes and extract the nutrient from their body for human consumption that is essential for human’s health. In fact, it is just an activity that kills whale for human’s own good. There are people believed that whaling has been done for years.
The Norwegian and Japanese positions and arguments to be permitted with the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption should not be considered. According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, “the whaling industry is in decline and the demand for meat is falling” (WDC, n.d.). Given this statement, I would support the ban of whaling worldwide. In addition, it would be difficult and costly to monitor the whaling activity that is taking place in waters where whales frequent. The separation of non-endangered species will not deter whalers from hunting any whale in sight.
The answer is no. One of the purposes of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling was to preserve the natural resource, Whale, as recognizing some species are in endanger. After years of protection under the provision, some are still in endanger, but some species increased the population. Does it mean that the member countries of IWC are allowed to hunt the Whale for cultural exemption? My response to the question is to suspend the
Hello, everyone. Today, I’d like to introduce to you the decreasing of blue whales and think together from moral standpoint about some words which are carelessly used now and then. I’m afraid this topic a little deviates from environmental problems, but to prevent us from repeating same mistakes in nature, it is necessary not only survey natural environment but also overturn our thought against nature and all living things in the earth from the root. It has passed long time since the decreasing of the number of blue whale started to become the problem. We can attribute this problem to over whaling for the commercial purpose.
Adversity breaks one down until they can be broken no more, and although adversity has a negative connotation, overcoming adversity can make one stronger, turning it into a positive. When America was discovered and colonized, the indigenous peoples faced real hardships. Americans disliked anything that wasn’t European culture so they tried to eliminate tribal identities and assimilate the Native Americans into their culture. They outlawed certain Indian rituals such as the Ghost Dance and forced Indian children to speak English instead of their native languages. The constitution did not outline specific details for relations with Natives, so as America grew older, the government was left to deal with the Indians however they pleased.
While this is popular world opinion does not always mean it is correct, or in some cases wrong. To balance the claims extremes should not be taken. As with allowing whaling, moderations could be put into place. It could be allowed with only a certain number of whales per year or in keeping with a nation's sovereignty leaving the decisions about whether or not to allow whaling to the nations in which whaling exists or is part of the culture. I am still strongly for allowing or denying certain things only if they are for everyone or no one.
There are two sides of this debate within the convention. On one side, you have the people who are in favor of sustainable whaling subject to scientifically based regulation and then those who believe that commercial whaling should be banned even though scientific findings determine that certain whale stocks can recover from regulated commercial harvests (Aron, 2000). The ICW, in 1982, put in place a moratorium by bringing the quota levels of whale catches to zero for all whale species in its binding (Rolland, 2014). In a nutshell, a moratorium prohibits the use of factory ships for whaling, the only exceptions are the smallest and most populated whale species (“The Whaling Controversy”, 2002). Many want a change of wording within the regulations of the International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling, who created the ICW, because many of the anti-walling supporters within the convention believe that the clauses have granted the right for the pro-whaling people to keep doing what they are doing.
Although these days people in the 21st century are against Ritual Slaughter as they feel it mainly affects Animal Rights. People feel animals shouldn't be killed for the reason of religion but this ritual has been followed for many years. In this report I will be examining
Arguably, Benedict had a free choice whether to accept the risk or not. However, the defence of ‘volenti’ would be hard to prove because debatably Benedict was unaware of the risk and so, could not have consented to it as Jenifer’s statement created a ‘false sense of safety’. There is also the defence of contributory negligence which will reduce compensation payable. This arises where the claimant causes or contributes to their own harm by failing to take reasonable care for their own safety. This is assessed by asking what the reasonable person in the circumstances of the claimant would have done to avoid injury.
The United States of America failed in preventing the Communist takeover of Vietnam and had to reexamine its policy and initial involvement in the region. All around the world including UNO criticized the American involvement in the Vietnam War. Failure of US in this war was a big setback for the American hegemony. After that incident, USA never tried to use the forces in Southeast Asia. In case of North Korea also it is using diplomacy policy and trying to solve the issue with the help of dialogue because they are well aware that, military action may lead to Vietnam II.
However, this wasn’t a wise or fair way to do this. Instead, this method is just creating more bad blood between the movement leaders and Native Americans. The leaders could have slowly introduced Native Americans into modern society. Perhaps giving them some rights that made them feel a part of the United States, instead of complete outsiders, which is what the Dawes Act accomplished. I feel like the act was very unjust and shouldn’t have occurred.
The court later revised this number to $122.5 million by compounding a 5% interest annually (Churchill 135) but the Lakota response to this was that they were no more willing to take the new offer than the old one. The Lakota even coined the phrase “The Black Hills are not for sale” to demonstrate that they are not interested in a monetary sum but rather the land itself. This is disingenuous however because while the Lakota base their claim to the land in the idea that it was illegally seized, they cherry pick
The president during the enforcement of the Indian removal act, Andrew Jackson, thought that the indigenous people were less civilized and moral than the settlers, although many of the tribes had adapted to the European lifestyle. He did not believe that the more “civilized” people should live alongside the indigenous people. When congress passed the Indian removal act in 1830 that stated that it was legal to force indigenous people off of their land, he fully enforced it, pushing tribes west. When there was an auction of Cherokee land, he claimed he couldn 't do anything to stop it, but he didn 't truly want to. The indigenous people wanted to coexist in peace, as Red Jacket stated, “‘You have got our country but are not satisfied; you want to force your religion upon us….
The Indian Removal Act In the beginning, The United States recognized Indian tribes as separate nations of people entitled to their own lands that could only be obtained from them through treaties. Due to inexorable pressures of expansion, settlement, and commerce, however, treaties made with good intentions were often perceived as unsustainable within just a few years. The Indians felt betrayed and frequently reacted with violence when land promised to them forever was taken away. For the most part, however, they directed their energies toward maintaining their tribal identity while living in the new order. The United States under the leadership of President Andrew Jackson dealt with settling the Indians the most humane possible way, for
Jackson is basically lying saying it will enable them to pursue happiness in their own way but the natives didn’t get there own way since the US signed the treaty of New Echota that took away the land. The natives were constantly fighting back against there removal. In the Cherokee letter protesting the treaty the stated, "The instrument in question is not the act of our nation; we are not parties to its covenants; it has not received the sanction of our people." So saying it will enable them in their own way is a complete lie the government was using to make it sound like the Indian removal act was a good thing. The US never got the ok from the natives to give up the
