Thought of the Day. Growing the Animal Movement One Leftist at a Time. May 24, 2017

Instead of merely posting status updates on Facebook, I am now also posting each apothegm, thought, observation, and witticism, here, as a Thought of the Day.

Today’s Thought:

Engaging liberals, progressives, democratic socialists, and Marxists, is the most logical way to grow the animal movement.

Those on the political left are more likely to empathize with the plights of animals, as they are already concerned with the plights of oppressed people.

I joined some 50 left wing groups on Facebook and regularly post links to my blog, Armory of the Revolution, on each of them. Rather than posting drive-by links, I attempt to engage my audiences with provocative introductions and thoughtful commentaries. And I always keep in mind that it will take a great deal of interaction before winning people to the cause.




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. You do realize that only someone who is a hypocrite, a poseur, or is incredibly stupid ostensibly cares about the human underclass while ignoring the infinitely more miserable plight of non-human animals? In fact, it is this, more than anything else, that undermines the legitimacy of the political left.

    Just out of curiosity, how many hair-on-fire “progressives” have you converted?

    • I agree. Socialism and progressive agenda is to help the poor not the animals. These two goals often are at odds. According to the progressives, all 7.5 billion people deserve a nice life. The resources for the nice life has to come from somewhere. And one other nasty reality is that the number of poor people keeps increasing, not because the rich keep taking more, but because the poor keep having bigger and bigger families.


      • Voluntary extinction worked with my family. My parents had four children and none of us wanted offspring. My parents have gone to the promised land and we will soon follow. That leaves zero of us. It is downright refreshing. But it takes awhile to wait for the Grim Reaper to make a house call. So yes we need some quickening around here.


    • For example, I won’t name names, but there is a particular person who is leading a particular cause that I support, but the concept of animal rights goes right over his head. Also, I didn’t say anything, but the fact that he has a beer belly undermines the cause in my opinion. If he was vegan with flat abs like myself, I think he could do even better.
