- As long as human beings wage war against our animal cousins, we will not have #peace
among ourselves or within ourselves.
A study of 1,024 mammal species has determined which animals are the most vicious killers of their own kind. Killer #whales
maybe? For the answer, just look in the mirror.
Step back and view our species objectively from the outside, see ourselves the way every other #animals
perceive human beings.
We are the most relentless yet oblivious killers on Earth.The brutal #reality
could not be more evident or more horrifying.
Our violence operates far outside the bounds of any other species. Human beings kill anything. Slaughter is a defining behavior of our species.
"We kill all other creatures, and we kill our own. Read today’s paper. Read yesterday’s, or read tomorrow’s. The enormous industry of print and broadcast journalism serves predominantly to document our killing. Violence exists in the animal world, of course, but on a far different scale. Carnivores kill for food (human beings do not need to kill other animals for food); we kill our family members, our children, our parents, our spouses, our brothers and sisters, our cousins and in-laws. We kill strangers. We kill people who are different from us, in appearance, beliefs, race, and social status. We kill ourselves in suicide. We kill for advantage and for revenge, we kill for entertainment: the Roman Coliseum, drive-by shootings, bullfights, hunting and fishing, animal roadkill in an instantaneous reflex for sport. We kill friends, rivals, coworkers, and classmates. Children kill children, in school and on the playground. Grandparents, parents, fathers, mothers--all kill and all of them are the targets of killing…” -R. Douglas Fields
As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no #harmony
between people. Slaughter and #justice
cannot dwell together.--Isaac Bashevis Singer
