“There’s one line from the documentary that stuck out vividly. In the backdrop of a shot of a school of fish swimming in the ocean, the narrator says, “this is an illusion of abundance”. I learnt that it’s not just fish that have given us the “illusion of abundance”, however. The irresponsible consumption of finite resources that we consume: fossil fuels, meat and trees are all giving us the “illusion of abundance”.
I think my biggest takeaway from the documentary is that the lives of the privileged are impacting the most vulnerable, not just within human society but also within the animal kingdom.”
