Today’s Thought:

The beginning of the Animal Holocaust occurred when the first human penned in the first animal.

That crime of enslavement set the course for agriculture, for the torture and slaughter of animals.

For the course of civilization. For war. For slavery. For all the horrors humans inflict upon the animals and each other.

Two hundred years ago, capitalism turned cruelty into an industry, and factory farming was born.




Armory 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.

  1. Yes, the first animal in a pen was the beginning of ownership on a large scale, of animals, land, property. The possibilities unleashed a level greed that had not been possible before. The rest is history.

  2. The animal holocaust, aka the Sixth Mass Extinction, began when Homo sapiens left Africa, encountering species with no fear of humans. North America, for example, experienced the extinction of dire wolves, sabertooth cats et. al. millennia before the agricultural revolution established civilization.

  3. Thank you for the post. I don’t know whether you received my email concerning my volunteer efforts to raise money for a No Kill Rescue and Training facility in Las Vegas focused on large dogs and Pit Bulls in particular but if you know a landowner or benefactor, I’d certainly like to talk with them and discuss possibilities.

    Best Wishes,

  4. Good connect. The origin of human suffering is animal enslavement. A compassionate society that protects animals does not cause human suffering.
