Instead of posting status updates on Facebook, I am now posting each apothegm, thought, observation, and witticism, here, as a Thought Of The Day.
Status updates on Facebook disappear into the ether and cannot be relocated by readers.

Humans raise law, necessity, private property, religion, tradition, individual freedom, etc, as justifications for the exploitation and murder of both people and animals.
But none of those rationalizations is the ultimate reason that human violence is visited upon others or upon animals.
The reason for all violence is simple: Humans have the power to commit violence, and neither the weak nor the unorganized (nor the animals) can prevent it being done to them.
Institutionalized violence has been the province of most governments and of the oligarchs that control most governments. It is carried out by armies, corporations, police forces and legal systems.,
It is taught in the schools and in the pulpits, extolled by the media and and political leaders.
And it will never end under our capitalist system or under our fascist governments.
• 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.
