Question by ANDERSON P: Can you call this as culture?
Recently, there are quite a news on whale hunting, save the bluefin tuna, the academy award winning document ‘The Cove’ or dog eating, snakes etc etc…(pls google it, if you want more info), I cant help but wondering is just because some countries doesnt eats certain animals they doesnt allowed other nation to eat or hunt for it? I putting this question unbiasly and hope all answerers could help me to identify if we could call this as a culture.
1) Is banning bluefin tuna hunting a necessary measure now because the Japanese is totally against it and called it a ‘depriving them from their eating culture (tuna is their food culture). Is it part of the western gimmick to surpressed Japan?
What about other nations that doesnt eats turkey? WHilst the west eats thousands of turkey for christmas dinner, is fair to say they are also slaughtering a cute bird just for a festival?
It often to hear the west condemned Japanese on such slaughtering and then the Japanese condemned the Chinese, Korean on dog eating (which is already the past, although there are still a small percentage now) and vice versa but when one happen to themselves, they call it, it is their culture! How far could you justify this ‘culture’ and how far could one use culture?
So how do you justify

Yes I agree, those in Rwanda putting honey on a stick and digging around in a rotten tree looking for bugs are much more civilized.
