Thought Of The Day. February 21, 2016

Instead of posting status updates on Facebook, I am now posting each apothegm, thought, observation, and witticism, here, as a Thought Of The Day.

Today’s Thought:

Republicans and Wall Street Democrats are both supportive of the corporate rule of America. They may disagree on social issues like immigration, abortion, and guns, but they are in lock-step when it comes to foreign policy, military adventurism, trade agreements, corporate welfare, monetary policy, Wall Street, appointing industry lobbyists and executives to regulatory agencies, super pacs, corporate bribery of candidates and elected officials, etc.

Only liberal Democrats, and socialists like Bernie Sanders, are opposing corporate ownership of the US government.

 

 

Author’s Notes:

This article was published here a couple of days ago under the title We Must Step Outside Our Species. Because of a WordPress glitch it was not able to be shared properly.

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

• Be sure to visit Armory of the Revolution’s new commissary and bookstore: The Supply Depot

You will find recommended reading on Animal Rights, revolutionary theory, politics, economics, religion, science, and atheism. There is also a section of supplies for animal liberationists, hunt saboteurs, and social revolutionaries. This is all brand new, and we will be adding lots more merchandise in the near future!

Feel free to comment. I encourage open discussion and welcome other opinions. I moderate comments because this blog has been attacked by hunters and right wing trolls. I approve comments that are critical as well as those which agree with me. Comments that I will not tolerate are those that are spam, threatening, disrespectful, or which promote animal abuse and cruelty.

  1. I am unaware that Bernie is a vegetarian …he supports gun ownership and hunters so I find it hard to believe he cares about animals …I hope I am wrong… I do know that Bill Clinton and Al Gore are both vegans …
    Hillary may be a vegetarian at this point she hangs out with a ton of vegetarian folks…
    check on all of this …

    • The rationale for supporting Sanders, or any candidate, is not whether or not they are vegan, but what will be the impact upon animals if they are elected. Sanders is threatening the very foundations of corporate ownership of the US government. He is fighting to get corporate money out of politics and to eliminate the influences of lobbyists and special interests. He opposes Big Ag’s factory farms and pushes family farms, which would greatly minimize animal suffering.

      Neither Bill Clinton nor Al Gore are vegans for the animals, they are vegans for health reasons.

  2. And Sanders’ campaign is being funded by small donations by the people who believe in him. Can we count on citizen participation in the future or can we get reform against entrenched intetests?
