Asimov said it best "The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom". True today as well.
What can you do?

Last comment on this and I will let it go because this is a cephalopod list... If you do not mind me asking, so you do consume shark fin soup given the methods by which the fins are collected from the sharks?

Besides, much like some other naturalists, I prefer the company of animals to people. (except for cephheads, of course!) I hear where you are coming from, Chrono...public pressure can be tough, family pressure even tougher. Can't fault you for being nice !
Think of the sharks, though. No fins, dead in a matter of minutes, confused and not knowing what the heck just happened. Kind of like being plucked out of the blue, having your arms and legs ripped off, then dropped back into the city, flopping around. Yikes.
