The Human Animal’s Lethal ArrogancePosted: January 30, 2015
There exists on this Earth, a lethal arrogance. We see it in kill “shelters”, at PETA, the HSUS, ASPCA, and elsewhere:
Some arrogant/ignorant humans treat pets as though we were omniscient gods‚ lying by deluding others into believing that death is our loving “gift” to them. We have no right to condemn healthy companion animals based on our limited understanding of their realities, as our mission should be exactly the same as children’s advocates: Establish more temporary safe havens, find additional permanent homes, and, most importantly, develop programs that reduce the number of homeless.
Do countless children suffer for many years trapped in overcrowded and substandard orphanages?
Of course, as do refugees and millions upon millions of other displaced people, and this suffering is a horrendous tragedy. However, compassionate people seek to remedy these problems through addressing the fundamental causes, not killing the victims.
Killing is done by the uncivilized. By the narrow minded. By the weak in soul.
No Kill Programs are implemented by those truly evolved enough to know that a cat’s life means equally as much to Him/Her, that a human animal’s life means to them!
It’s time to get over ourselves. We humans do not have the patent on life. We are but one of millions of species of animals on Earth, (most of whom were here long before us) and we are no more, and no less, deserving of rights, and of life, than anybody else.
Live and let live……..or f*ck off.
