See, there it is. We can do whatever we want. After all, we're so very special; we're separate from the rest.

That is so selfish, pathetic, cowyo.”

You have no intention of expanding the circle of compassion. You have no desire to protect other animals. You justify cruelty.”

"Show me the enforced laws of a state for the prevention of cruelty to animals and I in turn will give you a correct estimate of the refinement, enlightenment, integrity and equity of that commonwealth's people." L.T. Danshiell

"Active hatred of cruelty, injustice and oppression is perhaps the main difference between a good person and a bad one." ~ John Morley

“Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.” ~ Milan Kundera”

“Re: human exceptionalism/greed

One thing is for certain, cowyo. From an "unbiased" point of view, the truth (whatever that is) can't always benefit a particular creature/group. If it does, it must be heavily tainted, I suppose.”

“Great minds, higher/clearer thinking cont...Apparently, unselfishness and greatness go hand-in-hand.

“Enslaving and eating animals is relentlessly polluting our mental and bodily environments, hardening our hearts and blocking feelings and awareness, instigating fear, violence, and repression in our relationships, laying waste our precious planet, gruesomely torturing and killing billions of terrorized beings, deadening us spiritually, and profoundly disempowering us by impeding our innate intelligence and our ability to make essential connections.” ~ Dr. Will Tuttle, “The World Peace Diet”

"Were the belief one day to become general that man could dispense with animal food, there would ensue not only a great economic revolution, but a moral improvement as well." ~ M. Maeterlinck

"Only by means of reverence for life can we establish a spiritual and humane relationship with both people and all living creatures within our reach. Only in this fashion can we avoid harming others, and, within the limits of our capacity, go to their aid whenever they need us. “~ A. Schweitzer

"Our treatment of animals is important to our own internal state. If we are to expand our horizons, to grow to understand what the relatedness of each and every thing means, then our love and appreciation of all life is essential. ~ B. Schul”

"What is clearer than that man is not furnished for hunting, much less for eating, other animals? In one word, we seem to be admirably admonished by Cicero that man was destined for other things than for seizing and cutting the throats of other animals. If you answer, "that may be said to be an industry ordered by Nature, by which such weapons are invented," then, behold, it is by the very same artificial instrument that men make weapons for mutual slaughter. Do they this at the instigation of Nature? Can a use so noxious be called natural? Faculty is given by Nature, but it is our own fault that we make a perverse use of it." ~ Pierre Gassendi”

“Convenient, self-serving views yet again, cowyo…what a surprise. Beware of human nature, Mr. Know It All. In case you haven't noticed, our views, beliefs, traditions, etc. tend to be extremely one-sided.

“In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist ethic of the era of slavery and colonialism, so we must now progress beyond the speciesist ethic of the era of factory farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of whaling, seal hunting, kangaroo slaughter and the destruction of wilderness. We must take the final step in expanding the circle of ethics.” ~ Pete Singer”

“How convenient.
 
“Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes - by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying for Peace on Earth.” ~ Coats, C. David”

Those who make a mockery of the true spirit of compassion/whole concept of justice can never be moral, cowyo. Quite frankly, those who condone unnecessary suffering (and violence) intend to be cruel.”
