Being an old fart I do occasionally enjoy my TV and Deadliest Catch is one of our top 10. Lately they have been pimping a new show on Animal Planet (one of the Discovery networks); "Whale Wars" which without watching it; seems to be a reality show documenting the "Enlightened Ones" in their attempt to disrupt whaling operations. Wether or not whaling is right or wrong, legal or illegal, moral or immoral: By showing and seemingly taking the view of the "Enlightened People" in their quest: Isn't the Disco network condoning the diruption activities? Again I have not watched the show nor will I as I have a very strong opinion against Eco Terrorism and I believe the disruption of legal activities and the putting people in danger by: Spiking of trees to prevent logging in the N.W. by Earthfirst and other groups, the spiking and booby trapping of B to V and the throwing of projectiles or spraying of firehoses at Firsherman intimidate and threatening/trying to intimidate them is nothing more than another form of terrorism... Maybe next they'll will do a series on a wonderful group like the Sierra Club, preventing Evil Off Roading in prestine locations as Outlet Center Drive. That would make all the armchair, feel good, types send in a few bucks to the good guys to make themslves feel like they contributed to society. I for one wonder where the line is? Could the Disco group be pimping specific agenda's? Is it really all in the name of ratings or is there more??? Their links on their site are interesting: Planet Earth, Planet Green, and they recently aquired "Treehugger" an eco friendly blog site for $10M... They say we are destined to become the things we mock and dad is kind of a conspiracy nut at times, always looking into what the real story is and who's really behind it. When I was 16 he was clueless, 22 he seemed to have a few things that made sense, and now he seems like he really knows his stuff. I wonder if there is an agenda behind this network that the community should be aware of or is it all in the name or ratings? Either way I'll be steering away from the Disco network as I'm pretty black and white and it looks to me like they are promoting and condoning acts of Eco Terrorism...
