Just to mention this isn't the Danish mainland, it's a tradition of the Faroe islands. Most of Denmark's population is against this, as is most of the world.
Still the flawed idea that tradition is a justification for their actions is a driving force for Faroe Islanders to continue. The world shouts about it a lot.
Maybe take some solace in the fact that this tradition is in it's death throes and the participants will be tainted in human history.
