    Both suck. Only major difference I see is one (sea world) takes and abuses animals from the wild that are also considered mildly to very intelligent creatures for more or less entertainment slavery. The other (rodeo) breeds and domesticates rather unintelligent creatures from birth, uses them for a short while, and then breeds them out again at the end of their lives. While the different isn't that big I think humans are just more accustom to seeing horses, cows, and things like that being used as tools because they have been for most of our civilizations time period. Whereas whales, dolphins, and other creatures like that really have not. Hunted and such? Sure. But not used as tools (no whales pulling boats around the ocean type shit for example). Does it make it right? No, but that cow will either be bucking someone off its back or in a hamburger.

    Because the point of rodeo is watching the rider get stomped by the animal he's trying to ride. Hopefully.

    Isn't it?

    You have far too much faith in people in my view.

    The world is definitely not as gloomy as it seems. We as a species have never had a higher standard of living and generally the world is a lot less violent nowadays than it was a century ago.

    More now, we're starting to become increasingly empathetic as a species. I know this sounds ridiculous but I can almost see some animal rights activists as precursors to a movement that will inevitably extend protections towards many animals (similar to how early abolitionists and suffragists set the stage for greater civil rights movements). I think we will gradually grow greater empathy as we have greater access to information and have to worry less about basic survival needs.

    Just a hunch though, I could just be crazy

    It has to do with how poorly dolphins and orcas do in enclosed habitats at zoos and places like SeaWorld.

    We overlook a lot of things.

    Not from what I see ... but you are welcome to your view.

    You've been schooled more than once in this thread, by multiple people. Time to stop digging that hole.
