There’s been a fair bit of discussion lately about the legitimacy of the international fugitive sometimes referred to as “Captain” Paul Watson.
Some people truly believe in what he’s doing, others find it bizarrely entertaining, and still others absolutely abhor the guy and consider him a terrorist.
Like, people really, really, HATE him.
Whatever you believe, the debate will certainly continue until the last episode of Whale Wars, or until “Captain” Watson ends up behind bars.
I put “Captain” in quotation marks to highlight a furious debate that continues on gCaptain…
What is the prerequisite to be considered a “Captain”, and does Paul Watson meet those criteria?
Personally, I think he’s a total joke and will likely end up hurting or killing someone by accident. However, he is the guy in charge of a ship at sea, so unfortunately, I would have to say that he is a Captain. Not a captain who I think deserves to wear 4 stripes on his sleeve though, that’s for damn sure.
