Your View is not Superior

Updated: Dec 12, 2021

The majority has spoken. Spring Hunting shall be retained in Malta. We live in a democracy. Now let it go.

It’s easy to think that all the people who have voted against your will are demons. That’s natural, if a bit dumb and egotistic. But it’s not the case. Everybody has their own reason for voting what they voted, if you voted No, perhaps you want to protect birds, or send a message to hunters, or some other reason; if you voted YES, perhaps you’re a hunter, or you think that hunters shouldn’t all be punished, or you’re liberal and think that it’s not your place to interfere with what other people do. Either way, nobody is an idiot, nobody is a disgrace to Malta, nobody is stupid. Everybody is entitled to their opinion, and yours is not superior.

And this especially goes to the bashing of Malta on twitter by foreigners. We may have 2 weeks of hunting birds longer than you do, but we don’t have fox hunting, badger culling and every other pastime you have. And if we did, I can still think of a hundred reasons why even though I lived in your country I came back to mine.
