We are well past the point where everyone can clearly see the two sides of the issue of animal rights. On the one side we have those who would choose taste, convenience and tradition and on the other we have those who will defend compassion, empathy and justice. It is truly a war of good versus evil. What is happening to animals everywhere can be labeled nothing else. If it is not evil to give your money to corporations or even backyard or small scale farms that will allow the cruelty and abuse heaped upon these living, feeling creatures, then we truly live in the land of moral relativity where I could no more defend protecting a human life than an animals. But, if we do not, it there is such thing as right and wrong which we so clearly feel in the core of our being, make no doubt about it, doing the least amount of harm possible to all living creatures is at the very core of the true moral code that we are all aware of residing within.
Denying it is the best the opponents of justice and compassion can do. They can deny that all creatures deserve to be treated with kindness and to be made to suffer as little as possible and never when unnecessary. But, in the end, even the staunchest of fools who defends his right to eat bacon until his final heart attack knows deep down inside that justice lies with those who fight for and defend all living creatures. How could one even delusionally suggest that this is anything but the greatest social justice movement in the history of mankind. This is not about white males being equal, or women, or different races, or gender identities or really at the heart of it about different species. It is about having an equal right to share this planet with all creatures of all sexes, races, and species. It is the culmination of years of inch by inch building up to true justice for all and not just certain groups. Mankind may be destroyed by the global warming that our consumption of animals has brought on, but should we live there is no doubt that animals will one day be free from this current horror that some have the indecency to call humane treatment. And then and only then can we discuss the idea of true social justice.
So, choose wisely! Will you be on the side of those that will one day be seen as the people too stubborn or heartless to change? Or will you be one who sees injustice and cares not what species is suffering, but rushes to the aid of those who need defending? It is not too late to reveal your true colors! There is still time to unleash the goodness and compassion buried deep within. No one is a lost cause until they accept that they are too weak to change or too evil to care. But the vast majority of mankind is capable of the act of seeing life through the eyes of others. And through this empathy, we can understand that if it were us suffering, we would hope our calls would be answered and justice finally carried out.
