13. Good for them

As long as the harvest is proven sustainable and not in violation of international agreements then why should they not be able to maintain their traditional life? It's not like they are throwing virgins into a volcano or cutting the hearts out of defeated captives, which is what some cultures did and were understandably stopped.

There really are remote communities that can not run down to the supermarket and buy food. Believe it or not, there are still subsistence communities in this country. Would you rather them starve rather than eat the food their people have eaten for thousands of years? Or ship them beef, pork, chicken or whatnot that lived a much more brutal life than those whales? Or tofu. I am sure that a people whose entire culture is based on harvesting(killing and eating) mammals will be willing to forego their lifestyle.

Capitalism almost drove whales into oblivion, not Native Americans trying to hang on to their traditional life.

Have a nice evening.
