Persuasive Essay On Whaling

Submitted By

Pages 4
According to Greenpeace (n.d.), the Natural Resources Defense Council (n.d.), and The Whale and Dolphin Conservation (n.d.) the main concern about the practice of whaling is that it endangers the population of whales. They all believe and propagate that under no circumstance should whaling be allowed. However if the facts are examined closely, it appears that their argument doesn’t hold up to what is actually happening in countries that are defending their tradition of whaling. The minke whale is primarily hunted by Norwegians and is also frequently sought after by the Japanese. According to the website of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) this whale is listed as “least concern” on their …show more content…
I believe that these activities would have to signify a tradition that is deep rooted in a country and would have a considerable impact if they were taken away. Each country would have to agree to participate in the proceedings (much like the WTO model) and acknowledge an obligation to honor any decisions that are established there. If this criteria is met, the delegates for the tribunal committee would then be handpicked from the organization’s administrative board. This committee would always be made up of people who are objective and can fully understand the issue at hand. Having an informed panel will help to give a fair judgement and hopefully avoid imposing one culture’s beliefs on another. For Norway’s and Japan’s whaling tribunal, the committee would be made up of scientists who have studied whaling, data analysts who can analyze the whaling population and the impacts whaling has on it, economist that are familiar with Norway and Japan’s economies, and also cultural experts who can explain and defend their heritage. Enforcement of the outcome will always be tricky because there isn’t really a global police and one organization doesn’t necessarily have any authority over a country. However, I hope that if real science and real facts are used to come to a final judgement, all countries involved will feel adequately represented and will be able to respect the

...1. Literature of the 17th century. John Milton. “Paradise Lost”. John Bunyan. “Pilgrim’s Progress”. The peculiarities of the English literature of the 17th century are determined by the events of the Engl. Bourgeois Revolution, which took place in 1640-60. King Charles I was beheaded in 1649& General Oliver Cromwell became the leader of the new government. In 1660, shortly after Cro-ll’s death, the dynasty of the Stuarts was restored. The establishment of new social&eco-ic relations, the change from feudal to bourgeois ownership, escalating class-struggle, liberation movement and contradictions of the bourgeois society found their reflection in lit-re. The main representatives of this period is: John Milton: was born in London&educated at Christ’s College. He lived a pure life believing that he had a great purpose to complete. At college he was known as the The Lady of Christ’s. he Got master’s degree at Cambridge. It’s convenient to consider his works in 3 divisions. At first he wrote his short poems at Horton. (The Passion, Song on May Morning, L’Allegro). Then he wrote mainly prose. His 3 greatest poems belong to his last group. At the age of 23 he had still done little in life&he admits this in one of his sonnets. (On his 23d B-day) In his another sonnet he wrote on his own blindness.

Anthropol. 1999.28:i-xxiii. Downloaded from www.annualreviews.org by 197.179.183.136 on 11/03/13. For personal use only. Marshall Sahlins Department of Anthropology, University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois 60637; e-mail: m-sahlins@uchicago.edu Key Words: modernity, indigenization, translocality, culture, development n Abstract A broad reflection on some of the major surprises to anthropological theory occasioned by the history, and in a number of instances the tenacity, of indigenous cultures in the twentieth century. We are not leaving the century with the same ideas that got us there. Contrary to the inherited notions of progressive development, whether of the political left or right, the surviving victims of imperial capitalism neither became all alike nor just like us. Contrary to the “despondency theory” of mid-century, the logical and historical precursor of dependency theory, surviving indigenous peoples aim to take cultural responsibility for what has been done to them. Across large parts of northern North America, even hunters and gatherers live, largely by hunting and gathering. The Eskimo are still there, and they are still Eskimo. Around the world the peoples give the lie to received theoretical oppositions between tradition and change, indigenous culture and modernity,...

Nelson, 1979 The Migration of the Indians to the New World. It is believed that the people who Columbus saw when he came to the New World were nomadic hunters from central and East Asia who followed the buffalo and deer. When the herds moved, people moved after them because they were dependent on the animals for food. It is therefore suspected that the herds led the people out of Asia by the north-east, across the Bering Strait and into North America. They crossed the sea by an ice –bridge when it was frozen over during the last Ice-Age. They did not know that they were crossing water from one continent to another. Map 1 Amerindians migration from central Asia into North America. The Amerindians settled throughout North America and were the ancestors of the many Red Indian tribes we know today, as well as the Eskimos in the far north.
