He and his fellow gang members are disgusted with the way Japan is heading and its developing social mores. The oral thoroughly uncovered how Mishima followed similar beliefs to Noburo to a lesser extent and how the characters intertwined with his belief. Another aspect which was lightly touched in the oral was the meaning of the title. It seems to me as if the sailor, Rjuji, is a metaphor for Japans old ways as discussed before and the sea is a metaphor for Japan. Several times during the novel, a loud boat horn is sounded.
First, the two articles seem to have the different purposes. The article “SeaWorld: The Truth...” is biased toward the image of theme parks while “The Case Against...” ’s aim is the status of captive killer whales. This dissimilar point can be seen clearest at the introductory of the two articles. “The Case Against...” starts with affirmation that some theme parks should not keep orcas in prisons. “Orcas – intelligent, highly social, amazing,” the author claims, “beings – deserve their freedom.”(“The Case Against, par.
Stand up and speak for animals that In Michael Kirby's article in The Age in August 2011 "stand up and speak for animals that cannot", he discusses the issue of live cattle export from Australia to Indonesia and the terrible conditions that affect them when they arrive. He contends that the export industry should be ended and that "we have a historical opportunity to... act on a shared belief that grave cruelty to other sentient animals is unacceptable. Kilby uses the notions of patriotism and inclusive language to help convince the readers of his point and to make the readers see him as equal to him and him being the same as them. He begins by saying "Australia must decide" which makes people think it's their duty as well as everyone else's and also identifies himself as someone included in in this decision, and that it is not just the decision of the politicians and leaders. He later says "we have a historic opportunity..." which is another example of inclusive language, which again reaffirms the fact that Kilby is the same as the readers and that they are all a part of this.
Our animals are being captured, caged and confined on vessels, packed in hundreds, if not thousands as they travel for weeks across the seas, often deprived of food and water. Sounds familiar? Well it certainly wasn’t much different from when Africans were brought into America as cheap slaves. In front of the government and all my parliamentary colleagues here today, I would like to say that we, as the government, are failing to ensure the welfare of animals being exported from Australia as sheep and cattle continue to suffer inhumane treatment under the government's live export supply chain assurance system. This system is flawed as it was never designed to ensure animal welfare.
Disadvantages of Animals in Captivity Elizabeth Weise in her journal for International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) stated that approximately 18000 more species on the top list of endangered wild animals and 1940 species of the latter are listed as critically endangered wildlife (E.Weise,2011)¹. However, conservation is not the main reason for keeping animals in captivity. For thousands of years, animals have lived without being captivated by human. Keeping animals in captivity have a lot of disadvantages such as animal abuse, limits animals’ freedom and changes in animal behaviors. Firstly, keeping animals in captivity promotes animal abuse.
2-44)? Of course I would apply the concept of ethnocentrism to some of these customs that certain societies are so used to. I think that it is very cruel in my opinion to eat a monkey’s brains out of his/her head whether they are alive or not. To me it is very different because I didn’t grow up in a society that had this as their culture, so I could not relate to that what so ever. Eating cats and dogs is something that I could not relate to either.
Dogs can be trained to do things and cats cannot. According to Bradley Trevor Greive, a New York Times best selling author, “On September 11, 2001 many people died and thousands of lives were lost, but there were 17 People at ground zero that didn’t die because of the bravery of search and rescue dogs.” Nobody was saved by a cat on that terrible day. Dogs can be trained to do tricks and to not pee on the floor. When was the last time you seen a “cat show”? Dog shows have and will always be a form of entertainment for us as humans; they are fun to watch and very entertaining.
No matter how much we may try to replicate their own habitat and surroundings in a zoo and it will never get to its full potential. Predators need to hunt and taking them from the ability to do so by taming, caging and drugging them is beyond cruel. A study in 2008 found that Asian elephants in European zoos have a maximum life span of just 18.9 years compared to 41.7 years for wild elephants in an Asian logging camp. We should just let nature take its course. Wild animals in zoos suffer unnecessarily.
It is inhumane to keep animals in small enclosures like that where they wouldn’t even get room to stretch their legs or get the chance to behave like they would naturally in the wild. The more intelligent animals (dogs, cats, pigs, primates etc) suffer from severe cases of loneliness because they lack the rights to run around and be free. How would you feel if you could not run around in a free environment? My second argument is using animals for testing cosmetics. It is estimated that over 1 million animals are killed due to companies that test their products on animals and those companies tell us that they use animals to test the safety of their products.
White Tiger Case-Study Surprising to most people, the only way that white tigers are produced is through genetic manipulation and severe inbreeding done by humans. This results in many deformities and defects in all of the white tigers that are put through this unethical process. The myth of there being a rare White Bengal Tiger is just an illusion or an excuse that people use to delude the public into thinking that these tigers are an endangered species and need to be preserved for future generations to come (Baskin 1). In reality the people who breed the tigers are using them for entertainment purposes, economic purposes, and their personal benefit not for the conservation effort that they claim is much needed to preserve the white tiger species. We need to educate ourselves of this fraud and take measures to stop the cruel inbreeding that is being done, and consider the well being of the tigers.
