Thought Of The Day. March 23, 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:

The whole world joins in outrage and sorrow for the loss of lives in Brussels. I do as well.

But the loss of dozens of human lives in a single act of terror pales when compared to the terror humans inflict upon animals every second of every hour of every day. 24/7. Year in and out.

In the time it takes to blink an eye, humans murder one hundred times the number of victims as ISIS claimed in Brussels.

Where is the outrage? The sorrow? The revenge? The resolve to stop the horror?

The lives of sentient beings are equally valuable. Each wants to live. Each can feel pain. Each wants to be free. Each has the same right to live on this Earth.

Had ISIS wiped out every human in Europe their crimes would still be less than the crimes the human race commits against animals in a single day.

Until we gain perspective, we can never stop the Animal Holocaust.

Until we recognize that the local slaughterhouse is more evil than is ISIS, we continue to be speciesists.

Animal rights activists know that speciesism is the greatest evil in the world.

 

 

Author’s Notes:

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.

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. We have to bridge the chasm between human beings and other animals that gives only human lives value and moral and legal standing. As a corollary we have to stop viewing animals as nothing more than resources or property. Then we have to recognize cruelty when it’s right in front of us

  2. What do you expect?
    We ALSO ignore the deaths of fellow human beings not belonging to “OUR herd” – hundreds up to thousands of humans are senselessly killed every day, and nobody really cares. It happens too far away, to people we don’t know and don’t feel connected with.
    If we don’t even care for our own species, how can you expect the average human being to care for another species?
    Maybe, if we stopped seeing animals as THINGS to be handled however we wish – however we can profit from it… – we would value human lifes a bit more, too…
