Whaling, To what extend it ethical activity? If we asked Japanese people about the whaling, they think whaling (or eat whale as a food) is ethical thing, because it is one of Japanese culture. Not only Japan has unique tradition and culture, but also Korea, and Australia also has unique cultures. In Korea, there is culture that eating dog, and in Australia, eating kangaroo is their own culture. so the person think people should understand each other's culture. and here is KI issue, is it ethical to kill endanger animal because of it is country's tradition or culture? Can we say ethics related to culture? or since it has been a long history and culture in our life, can we still say it is unethical?
