My Neighbors, The Murderers

Societal changes are glacially slow. Four hundred years of slavery in America. Five hundred years before women could vote. And the enslavement, exploitation, and murder of animals since the Dawn of Time. Each day One Hundred Fifty Million animals are brutally murdered in slaughterhouses. Six million per hour. One hundred thousand while you read these…

Shoot Slaughterhouse Owners!

Toward Meaningful Direct Action: A Blueprint for Vigilantism Direct action by animal liberationists and animal rights activists has been sporadic, unfocused, and ineffective. We have played the game within the system. We have abjured violence, We have only targeted property. We have failed. Most animals we free are quickly re-captured by their tormentors. Property we…

How Many Calves and Lambs Must Die?

How many innocent animals must die before we recognize that what we are doing is not stopping, or even reducing, the Animal Holocaust? Baby calves, lambs, piglets, are murdered every hour of every day. They are born into slavery, torn from their mothers, abused, tortured, terrified, and slaughtered.

Meat Eaters And Child Molesters

It means government action, proscription, enforcement, consequences. Curious, then, that many who call themselves “abolitionists” have absolutely no clue to the concept. So called “abolitionists” use the term to mean that they…

Blood On The Hands Of Animal Activists

The Armory of the Revolution blog grew out of my Facebook Notes. I had published 500 articles on Facebook prior to launching the Armory. Facebook Notes and Armory essays are hit pieces, ammunition in guerilla campaigns. They are not scholarly research presentations, nor are they meant to be. Facebook and social media sites are not…

Rescuers To Revolutionaries

Almost all of us began our involvement with the Animal Rights movement as rescuers. Saving homeless dogs and cats. Feeding strays. Fostering animals set to die in shelters. Adopting ones we couldn’t place. Only becoming familiar with the horrors of the meat, leather, dairy, and egg industries from colleagues in the movement. Even then, most…
