All the needless deaths... 05.Jun.2004 23:53

-

that's exactly how I feel about the 16-23 billion animals killed per year in the US for selfish, greedy human consumption. The lifelong misery that they suffer on factory farms, and their death like widgets through a slaughterhouse is far more shameful than some humans choosing to go to war and having it work out poorly. If you care about suffering and needless death, stop eating animals.

Chosing to go to war? 06.Jun.2004 10:55

The previous poster's comment about some humans "choosing to go to war" is an over-simplification of the issue. The truth is that a lot of those people who are over there fighting didn't have much choice in the matter. From personal experience I know that the majority of the military's enlisted soldiers are there because they have few other carreer or educational opportunities, and aren't aware of any options. I am not saying they should be absolved of all responsibility, but you need to consider the big picture before jumping to conclusions and implying that their deaths don't matter. This is a class issue - as they say, the rich start wars and the poor go off to fight in them. Not to mention the fact (as the original poster pointed out) that a hell of a lot of innocent Iraqis are being killed in this mess, too. I consider *that* a lot more shameful than the death of livestock. No matter how you feel about anything else, surely most would join myself and the original poster in mourning the needless loss of life.

By the way - before you make any more snap judgements, I am (primarily for ethical reasons) a vegan.

Nah. I agree with the previous poster-- 06.Jun.2004 11:14

the animals have no control at all. None. Chained up, can't get away, can't hide. Slaughtered by the billions in this country--in magnitude and relentless cruelty alone the problem is bigger. Unless you value the suffering of one sentient creature (humans), over another with an equal ability to suffer (as you call them, "livestock"). You sound like a vegan who is still a speciesist.

Definitely a speciesist

I am a specieist. For ethical reasons, I am a vegetarian, but I consider it much, much more important when human beings die than when animals die. Not that I don't care when animals die, I just think other human beings are more important. Right now there are billions of people being oppressed and exploited, and as far as I am concerned, the animals are secondary. After the human race has been liberated, we can turn our attention to the liberation of other beings. If I had the choice to free, for example, the palestinians, versus the choice to free an equivalent number of cows or chickens, I am definitely going to go with my fellow humans.

Not surprising. Humans are nothing if not 07.Jun.2004 01:08

self-interested. In volume of suffering, the animals have us beat many many times over, with the 50 BILLION forced to live miserable lives on farms each year, and then killed for food that we could do without.

I guess if you were an activist in the 1850s, you would have argued that we must make sure that all white Americans had good jobs and could support their families before we thought about such inconsequential things as enslavement of African-Americans. or even more bothersome, the right for women to vote. Bigotry is bigotry. Suffering is suffering, and in ability to do so, animals are our equals.

I wouldn't be so proud of being a speciesist--it's just as disgusting and inexcusable as any other bigotry. Sick.
