The Artdog Image of Interest
Normally when we think of a banned book or other communication, we assume it’s considered pornographic or inflammatory. And of course we immediately become curious, if we’re most people.
This week’s Image of Interest is a video whose story kind of begs for me to pass it on. Yes, it’s designed for kids, and yes, it does make a strong point. Whether or not that point is a dangerous or political point, I’ll let you decide. It just might be the most adorable banned video you’ll ever see.
You see, the point isn’t about a political party or a politician. It doesn’t consist of hate speech, and it’s not inciting anyone to rise up in rebellion against the government. It’s not attempting to inhibit any unalienable human rights.
It’s about deforestation and habitat loss due to palm oil cultivation and production, and it’s also about orangutans, topics I’ve addressed on this blog within recent months. What it does have the audacity to do is point out a problem that is widely acknowledged in scientific and environmental circles, and largely ignored or unknown by the general public.
I consider it my honor and privilege to spread this message as far as my humble little blog can spread it. It appears that lots of others feel the same way I did. The world’s caring people need to learn about, and pay more attention to this problem, before all the Pongo Faces are gone forever.
