Don’t Teach a Man to Fish
The Remaking of a Proverb
by Andrew Kirschner
Give a man a fish and he will eat mercury for a day.
Teach a man to fish and he will eat until the ocean is empty.
Teach a man fishing is cruel and unnecessary
and that fishes feel pain and suffer
and he will lead a more compassionate life,
oceans will survive,
and fishes will live their natural lives.
