Either you believe dolphins are intelligent or you don’t. Of course many people did not believe the Earth was round — despite support of scientific data — for quite some time. The facts remain! Your opinion is irrelevant. Science has proven the high intelligence of dolphins.
Any sentient being will choose freedom over captivity. For you, the opinions of these animals do not matter. For you, what they desire is irrelevant. You would therefore assert yourself as the dominant homo sapiens that you believe you are. How else could you assume that these intelligent beings’ feelings do not matter, unless you feel like some kind of ego-god by deeming them worthy of a life of incarceration? That is what separates us. That is what makes us different. We Anti-caps simply care more about the cetaceans’ emotional and mental well-being than you do.
