"Everyone dies. It is the final and only ever lasting justice. Evil exists; it is intelligence in the service of entropy. When the side of a mountain slides to kill a village, this is not evil, for evil requires intent. Should a sentient being cause that landslide, there is evil; and requires justice as a consequence, so that civilization can exist. There is no greater good than justice; and only if law serves justice is it a good law. It is said correctly that law exists not for the just but for the unjust, for the just carry the law in their hearts, and do not need to call it from afar. I bow to no one and give service only for cause."

It is someone who got banned because they posted their own material and were caught on it and now they made that profile so they can spout some shit.

How is it that @mygamesarefun could possibly have an opinion on how VideoSift is run, they have never even posted a video, or commented before....

Either, it's a hit and run comment, or a sock puppet is on the loose...

Half the time I dont know why I kill things. Have you seen my kill file. More vids in there then in my sifted. I do think it would be better if sifted by a Star Wars fan (wink,wink).

No, no, no offense taken. I and don't think you're hypocritical. You probably consume far less tuna over the course of a year than an average Japanese individual. The sad thing is, the population as a whole here is completely unaware of the tunas' plight. There's a conspiracy-theory level lack of coverage of the issue in the media here.

Case in point, a few weeks back the media reported about the first tuna auction of the year at Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, where traditionally people overbid on the largest tuna caught as kind of "good luck in the coming year" tradition. Except, the highest bid this year (as well as the fish caught) was much smaller than the last two years.

I read two different Western newspaper articles on the topic and they both went into great detail about how tuna catches are way down due to overfishing and how the size of the fish being caught is much smaller because only the juveniles are left (the more adult fish have already been caught). Both mentioned Japan consumes 80% of the worldwide tuna haul.

Then that night I go running at my local gym and watch the Japanese nightly news and they have a brief 30-second bit about how the first Tsukiji auction of the new year took place and how the person who won was the same as last year.

That's it, end of coverage. I literally laughed out loud on the treadmill, more in bitterness than anything else.

That's why in my Media English classes at the university I teach, the first newspaper article of the semester is always an English newspaper article about the tuna fishing situation. The kids are shocked at the statistics and they tell their friends about what they read. Most claim they're going to stop eating tuna. I have no idea if they actually do or not, but it's all I can really do to try to change attitudes here.

Didn't mean to get on a rant. My apologies, hope I didn't offend.
My basis was based on a documentary I say a year ago....
I'm forming conclusions I suppose. I've always had issues with over fishing on general terms. Perhaps my rant was misplaced, rambled on and got away from me.

I may be a bit of a hypocrite though, as even tonight I made soup with my katsuobushi (skipjack tuna) witch is a product of Japan.
