The Listening Portal that doesn’t want to listen
‘e-People’, the online portal for sending ‘even trivial’ complaints to the South Korean authorities, who claim they will listen closely to the voices of the people (everywhere in the world), has responded to our complaint about the illegal activities of the dog meat trade by including a statement noting that “prohibition of such habit [dog eating] by laws calls for social consensus”. In other words, they have not answered our concerns, but have given a meaningless and evasive reply.
They have not listened to our ‘voice’, nor indeed do they seem to be listening to the voices of the people of Korea, more and more of whom are turning against the illegal dog meat trade, and these dog-eating ‘habits’. And, since when does any country need ‘social consensus’ to enforce the law? Yet again, our concerns have fallen on deaf ears.
