I knew it was bad, but I had no idea it was that bad. We are a blight to this planet and, frankly, the COVID pandemic is nothing compared to what we deserve for the damage we have inflicted and still are inflicting to Earth. It’s hard not to be a misanthrope these days. I try not to, but it just gets harder and harder. We should know better than to do all the things we are doing to our oceans, to the sea life and, ultimately, to ourselves.
We carry tiny and super advanced computers in our pockets, we send rockets to the outer space, we create life in vitro, and yet we cannot (won’t) understand something so simple as the fact that we can’t keep treating the Earth as if it were our trash can, and the animals as products to be used by us. We can’t keep ignoring the fact that everything on this planet is connected and coexists in a delicate balance.
I haven’t eaten fish (or other animals, for that matter) for the last ten years, and I hate to be that guy that advocates or preaches about whatever to others, since I believe any change, to be meaningful, must come from within. But it’s really up to us to do something to save the only planet we have and the future of the generations to come.
I’m terrified by the idea of bringing a child into today’s world. I wish I wasn’t and I wish I wasn’t so gloomy, but I can’t help it. This documentary is very depressing, but just because it is so, it doesn’t mean people shouldn’t know the truth about the huge consequences of their daily seemingly innocent choices. They are not innocent and they have blood on their hands. We all have, directly or indirectly. You can be the most helpless, most coward, and weakest person in the entire world, but you still have the power to make a change simply by saying “I choose not to buy nor eat this. I can eat other alternatives and still enjoy a meal and live a healthy life.”
