Human rights and dignity apply only to human animals and are internationally strictly protected property. All other nonhuman animals suffer from lawlessness.
Domestication of animals is nothing but the other word of systematic confinement, tethering, branding, dangling tails, breeding, exploiting and brutally killing.
We, the human animals do not know what it feels like to live in chains.
Animals live in chains for the meat and milk industry, for the entertainment industry, for the laboratory industry, for the human species, which has a strong self-interest (and benefits) to assume the role of ruler, the oppressor.
The deliberate transformation of a living being into a bundle of suffering and dumb despair is a crime – what else should be a crime?
The human being does not evolve.
Obviously, a moral change in the consciousness of the human species is not subject to an evolutionary autopilot.
In other words, what we did not understand centuries ago can not be understood today.
That animals are not our slaves, not our food, not our torture objects.
We no longer burn witches, because only the term is abolished.
We don`t gass Jews, because we have banished criminal racism. We do not dispose of disabled children, as in Sparta, because children have rights.
And yet: one still lives on the tree in terms of morality towards animals.
Underdeveloped, smug assholes, that’s us.
