Commemorating Japan's First Commercial Whaling in 31 Years/31年ぶりの日本の商業捕鯨を祝う

Today, July 1, 2019, marks the resumption of Japan's commercial whaling after 31 years. For this special occasion, I made kujira no tatsuta-age as part of supper tonight. While making it, I recalled the faces of all those ugly, self-righteous, barbarous, culturally imperialistic, unscientific, emotional, and irrational cetophiliac people, as well as the adamant anti-whaling countries, namely, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the UK, and wished them all BAD LUCK.

Japan does not single out whales and dolphins for protection simply because they are more intelligent than other species. We abhor the very idea of ranking animals according to intelligence. We do not discriminate plant life from animal life, either. We are impartial in many ways, and life is no exception.

Not all whale species are endangered, and we will hunt only minke and other whales, which that are abundant in our territorial waters and EEZ, in a sustainable manner. In fact, there are so many of them there that they cause trouble to fishermen.

Anyway, I hope to be able to get my hands on the freshest whalemeat soon!
