People don't always suck


Since I deal with some deeply depressing news, I decided that I need a happy place to remind me that people can be really amazing sometimes. When I feel dragged down by meanness, selfishness, corruption, and ignorance, this is where I will come. Feel free to submit acts of human kindness, selflessness, and just plain awesomeness.

And if all this awesomeness is too much for you, you can check out my other blog, http://foulmouthedliberty.tumblr.com/, for balance. :)

Ask me anything
Sun Magazine: Can you say more about why you left Greenpeace?
Paul Watson: Because I’m not a protestor. I don’t think that protesting gets you very far. It’s such a submissive position to be in: “Please, please, don’t kill the whales.” And then the whalers go ahead and kill them anyway.
One of the most satisfying things about my work is that I have not seen a single whale die since the day I left Greenpeace, because we are not holding up banners - we are getting in the whalers’ way and shutting them down.
