Today’s Thought:

The fact that we are able to digest meat, is entirely different from having the moral right to breed sentient creatures for only one purpose: death, and which there is no humane way we can make happen, and whose lives are for the greater part a misery, and reduced to nothing more than a product. The higher majority of humans are not eating meat for survival, but for taste; in all its antibiotic laden, hormone disrupting, GMO affected glory. Using only what nature gave us, we are ill equipped, however much we like to think otherwise, to be carnivores.

Our want to have “pets” and also breeding more domestic animals who we then fail in greater numbers than those who live happy lives, as justification for causing the death of billions of other creatures, is not a good enough excuse to show love and compassion to one creature, and be fine with the killing of another; simply because they’re a different species making it “okay” to do so. Speciesism as as much of a problem on the planet as racism, and other forms of inequality. One life is not worth more than another, and when we see that, we’ll learn what peace really is.

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.

  1. I struggle daily with the politics of animal agriculture. I cannot comprehend abuse and neglect. I suffer because of man’s inability to see the beauty in the eyes of sentient creatures and I can’t understand how we feel justified in holding our lives so far above animals because we don’t believe their lives are as complex as ours. Animals communicate with us in so many subtle ways which sadly are invisible to many. We feel the need to control every aspect of even our beloved pets lives and can’t find compassion for stray or needy creatures. I’m haunted daily by images which find their way into my inbox. I’ve probably become insufferable because I no longer have compassion toward my fellow humans because at least they have a voice. Being compassionate is lonely. I’m a freak because I’m vegan. And my Facebook friends have left because I post petitions. Before I had my children I travelled the world, but now I find myself criticising a place because their are no laws protecting animals there. This all started when we first got the Internet. Animal abuse literally jumped through my computer and punched me in the face. It became very real and grabbed hold of me and didn’t let go. This was the start of my life turning to shit. I take one step forward and three steps back and now all I want Is human extinction and the animals and planet to reclaim what is rightfully theirs.

    • You are not alone, Clair! For all the horror that we endure due to instantaneous communication, we are on the verge of revolution. Knowing what is happening to our fellow creatures is the first step in attempting to minimize the horrors or to end them. I, too, wish for human extinction. Our species is a plague upon the planet. Short of extinction, I root for chaos, revolution, and socialism. The status quo is worse for animals than anything in history. Climate change may be the answer. The Earth destroying her worst enemy.
