“Animal Welfare Approved” Beef!

Dark humor. If only this was just a joke...

Every single day *millions* of individuals, millions of PEOPLE whose sole crime was being unfortunate enough to not have been born human are *murdered* after having first been enslaved, tortured, raped.

There is no excuse for this. It isn't about survival or necessity.

While we may not be able to make all of this horror and injustice stop right away, *all* of us can immediately take major steps towards righting these wrongs.


To start: Go Vegan Now.

Animal Liberation is the only "humane" option.

Thanks Cascadian -

Getting humans to care about non-humans is a challenge because of the illusion of human "superiority" (The First ISM), which has been reinforced for millennia by most religions...

I would love to invite friends over for dinner and tell them I'm serving dolphin steaks, just to see their reaction...then ask them to logically explain why it's ok to slaughter cows and pigs and not dolphins or puppies. You sort of have to hit them in the head with their own ridiculous logic.

@Cascadian.

That is just simply great advice that you give

"Go Vegan Now."

Especially to give such an advice on a veg forum...as for me, i follow your advice and will eat vegan FROM NOW ON!!

Thanks buddy, and let me return the favor and give you also some advice; Go urge people on NON VEG forums to "Go Vegan".

Advicing people to go veg on a veg forum is like a preacher urging his flock of sheep in the curch to go believe in Jezus. It is like, DUH.

Hammer-

Cascadian may well be posting on other sites, as I do daily.

But remember, please, that non-vegans also visit this site.

'Getting humans to care about non-humans is a challenge because of the illusion of human "superiority"'

Millions are murdered, and a lot of them not by humans. Other sentient animals kill sentient animals. Is the vegan response typically "well, they don't know any better - they don't have morals like us. We know that it is wrong, but they don't know that it is wrong."?

If I'm wrong, correct me. But doesn't that have a superiority ring to it?

PS I'm not trolling.

12345678-

Some animals kill other animals out of necessity...it's called "the balance of nature".

Only humans regularly cause the death of virtually every sentient being on the planet.

Most humans have little need to kill other animals...a rather important distinction, I would think. Humans kill for fun and profit.

I don't buy into the myth of human superiority, and my studies tell me that the concept of superiority is at the root of all our problems.
