The major animal rights and animal protection organizations are fund raising machines.
They have to be, because they must meet million dollar payrolls and pay their fund raisers.
Little is left over for the animals.
Were all that money to be placed in the hands of rescues and activists, millions more animals could be saved.
The problem with the animal movement is that it is rudderless. There are no leaders, only heads of competing organizations and balkanized interests.
Not only is there no cohesiveness in the movement, there is nothing close to universal goals or agreement as to what we are trying to accomplish.
Most activists in the animal movement are rescuers of domestic companion animals. A most worthy pursuit, but one that ignores most of the victims of human cruelty.
Animals trapped in the food system comprise over 99% of the victims of human cruelty, but they are almost entirely ignored by the animal movement. For those 60 billion animals tortured and murdered each year it is as if the animal movement does not even exist.
The Animal Holocaust claims not only the 60 BILLION animals murdered each year in slaughterhouses, but 2500 BILLION (2.5 trillion) sea creatures that die in factory ships, in seine nets, on long lines, and in ship holds.
The animal movement has been a complete and utter failure using any standard one wishes to apply.
All the animals saved by animal activists over the past 50 years are fewer than the number of animals who will be murdered in slaughterhouses in the next 8 hours.
That sobering fact should make every animal activist and every animal lover to question what we are doing as a movement.
The most hardcore animal advocates have been militating for veganism. Those of us who are vegan have been recruiting to grow our numbers and to bring aboard all who care about animals.
The problem is that we are losing. The animals are losing. Carnists are being born much faster than we can recruit vegans. Mathematically, the animal movement is doomed. Animal exploitation, slavery, torture, and murder, are guaranteed to continue and grow so long as we continue to as we have been.
The animals’ biggest enemy is capitalism. Capitalism encourages and rewards animal exploitation and animal murder. Most of the victims of human cruelty are animals trapped in the food system. Animals that are bred to be murdered. Bred to be sold, bred to have their corpses consumed as food or as clothing.
All governments, all legal systems, all major religions, and most minor ones, condone, excuse, protect and encourage the barbarism that is animal agriculture.
The animals need a new paradigm. We animal activists need to re-evaluate our goals, strategies, and objectives.
We need to consider direct action, vigilantism, revolt, and revolution.
We must overthrow the capitalist system which makes the Animal Holocaust possible.
We must bring down governments which protect the slaughter industries.
We must plan on revolution, chaos, and insurrection.
There is no voice for such action anywhere in the animal movement.
No organizations, no celebrities, no pundits, no blogs are calling for the radicalization of the animal movement.
Except for one..
Armory of the Revolution is the only voice for animal advocacy and socialist revolution.
Why socialist revolution?
Because socialism saves animal lives. Not on purpose, but as a consequence of socialist economics.
Socialist societies murder and consume half the animals per capita as do capitalist societies.
Were the entire world socialist, 30 BILLION animal each year would be saved from slavery, torture, and murder.
Only one blog in the world is dedicated to animal liberation and the defeat of capitalism.
