Animal activists are the enemies of human civilization. And those who are not, should be.
But for our legal system, there is no difference between killing an animal and killing a person.
There is no difference between raping an animal and raping a person.
There is no difference between making a slave of an animal and making a slave of a person.
The distinction is human law. Humans hold themselves above all other life, and have fashioned legal systems to reflect that view.
But morally, one cannot justify the difference between how humans are treated and how other sentient creatures are treated.
The only difference is that we are of different species.
To humans, it makes no difference how intelligent our victims are. No difference how sensitive our victims are. It makes no difference if an animal loves, grieves, laughs, or cries.
The fact that they are of a different species means compassion and empathy are of no concern or importance.
Yet humans value human life even if the life is a zygote. And humans consider a zygote more valuable than any non-human life.
In all of human history, in every human society, animals have been property to be done with as humans pleased.
The concept that animals have the same rights to life, to freedom from exploitation, from slavery, from abuse and cruelty, as we humans have, is the most revolutionary philosophy ever advanced.
Animal Rights is rejected by every government on Earth. It is at odds with every legal system, all major religions, and most minor ones.
Animal Rights is the enemy of human civilization.
And animal activists are not likely to make much difference in the horrors that humans commit against animals anytime soon.
To put into perspective the enormity of the task that confronts us, consider that humans slaughter 60 billion animals each year in slaughterhouses, which works out to 10,000 per second! And during that same second, while 10,000 creatures have their throats cut and painfully bleed out, some 50,000 sea creatures are killed in nets, dredges, ship’s holds and on long lines.
The modern animal movement has been around for 50 years. In all those years we have managed to save fewer animals than will be murdered in slaughterhouses during the next eight hour work shift.
We recoil in shock and disbelief when we are reminded of the atrocities of the Nazi death camps and the six million Jews murdered by Hitler. That horror occurred over almost a decade. The same number of animals are murdered every hour! A Nazi Holocaust each hour of every day, 365 days per year.
It is almost impossible for people to wrap their heads around the magnitude of the killing. Over a billion animals are killed every week.
How much is a billion?
A billion is a thousand million.
A billion seconds ago. Ronald Reagan was elected president. A billion minutes ago, Jesus was preaching,
A billion days ago (2,7million years ago), humans had not yet evolved from our ape-like ancestors in Africa.
A billion months ago (82 million year ago) dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
A billion years ago, the first multi-celled organisms appeared on Earth.
A billion dead animals ago was last week.
Human civilization is the enemy of animals. Humans trod lightly on the Earth when we were hunter-gatherers, feeding mostly upon fruits, berries, insects and carrion. As society became agricultural, humans increased the per capita killings and consumption of animals.The industrial age increased it exponentially. Capitalist society now thrives on the blood and body parts of the Earthlings we rape, breed, enslave and murder.
Only by ending capitalism can we start to free the animals.
Everything we do as activists must be aimed at the long term goal of social revolution.
