Blackfish is a documentary for any one with even just a shred of compassion. We as human beings pride ourselves of being logical, being able to feel, and being able to communicate.

By the end of the film–if you have any sense of compassion–you’d agree that the whales communicate with out a doubt that it is illogical to imprison animals to keep the capitalist machine of industry going. And for those of you who don’t have time for the film, Buzzfeed has a decent 11-point listicle about orcas in captivity:
