Skye and I went to the Santa Monica Drive-In at the Pier to see the Season 4 Premiere of Whale Wars. We both love the show and since we don’t have TV in the house, this was perfect timing. Plus we would get to see Captain Paul Watson up close and in person.
It’s funny to me the idea of Paul Watson as in “eco-terrorist”. The whole point of “terrorism” is to instill fear, terror in order to push an agenda, usually political in nature. Very often the relative randomness and attack on innocent bystanders is what makes it so terrifying and horrible. There must be a better term to use for who he is and what the Sea Shepherds are doing. Perhaps more in the lines of “civil disobedience” .
