Have you ever watched the show "Whale Wars" on animal planet? I watched an episode the other night, I had never even heard of it. Here is the rundown. A bunch of hippies have banded together to get on a ship and go after some Japanese who are whaling. (Whaling is illegal by international law, there is a loophole though, whaling is allowed for research purposes but each nation may set their own quotas. The Japanese have a very large quota.) Anyways, the hippies are going after these whalers; they believe they are in the right, because killing whales is bad. I can dig that. But the Japanese think that they are the good guys, and the hippies are "eco-terrorists, out to terrorize them." It makes you think about perspective. How other people can perceive you. You may think that you are doing the right thing, but everyone else could see you as a monster. It makes you want to take a good long hard look at what you are doing. Are you truly doing the right thing? Or have you somehow talked yourself into thinking its the right thing. I look at those people and think they are unexperienced people without the right equipment risking their necks for some whales. Its all about perspective, the way you see yourself and the way others see you are totally different, so watch out!
