just precisely how bad was 1500s jerusalem at making maps, you ask? well,
I was watching Finding Nemo and I realized the whole movie is incredibly anti-captivity. Nemo was taken away from his father. The dentist had some “He was struggling for his life out on the reef and I saved him” bit, like how SeaWorld likes to say that the orcas are safer and will live longer at SeaWorld than the wild. Even Gill has the line “Fish aren’t meant to be in a box kid, it does things to you…” And if you notice, most of the fish in the fish tank at the dentist office has some hint at a mental psychosis, Gurgle is incredible germaphobic and can’t stand filth, Deb has a delusion that she has a sister, Bubbles is obsessive about his bubbles, all as an effect of being in the fish tank for too long. If you notice, the main antagonist of the movie is Darla and the dentist - humans. Also if we really want to go through some symbolism - let’s look at it this way. The dentist takes Nemo out of the wild at a young age and locks him up and prepares him to be sent to live with Darla who kills her fish because she doesn’t know how to take care of them. Similar to how hunters take orcas out of the wild and send them to SeaWorld who have no idea how to take care of them, huh?
Am I forgiven yet?
