Unity ...

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.

Circus berserkus

November 19, 2022

The circus is in town, what do you see?
As I look out at you, and you look in at me
Do you see me as a large, roaring captive toy,
Or do you look into my eyes, just know pain, no joy.
Do you giggle and point as you mill around my cage,
In my terror annoint as I seethe in rage.
Do you not understand that my roar is a shout:

Open up the door and let me out!!!

See how, as an animal consuming climate activist, your actions really are meaningful …

Yeah, no.

It’s interesting how often people will stop buying straws to, “Help the Environment!!!!” but who won’t stop eating bacon to not cause harm to animals.

It’s socially acceptable to fight climate change or to require shoppers to use cloth bags for groceries or be charged for using store plastic ones, but tell people that animal agriculture is destroying the planet and that not eating fish causes less harm than not using straws, and you’re a privileged, loud-mouthed, self-serving vegan.

You all know the “joke”: How do you know someone is vegan?

They’ll tell you!!!

LOLHAHAHALOLOLHAHA!!!

Is that like: How do you know someone is gluten/lactose intolerant or allergic to wool?

They’ll tell you!!!

LOLOLOLOLHAhalolololhahaha …………… ???

It’s really not funny, is it?

(You know what else isn’t funny? The fact that calves aren’t lactose intolerant because “dairy” is made for them except they have to either die or be forced into reproductive servitude so that a completely different species, beyond infancy and with teeth, can steal THEIR naturally-intended milk.)

Just like you care about dirt but not cows or else you’d understand the absolute irrationality of dead cows shitting better than alive cows. Right?

It’s really disgusting as well as deceptive how people frame animal suffering as just an unfortunate consequence of being “environmentally responsible”.

Like, how would Earth survive without all the blood, feces, bacteria, disease, bones, decomposition, disease, violence, and suffering?

Nah, you didn’t care about animals OR the planet before climate change was a social hot topic, so don’t try to square-peg them into your round hole to attempt to legitimatize their suffering.

It’s just your non/antivegan way to ignore your contribution to environmental destruction … while forgiving the violent suffering you effortlessly inflict on defenseless, vulnerable animals.

Don’t BS vegans or legitimate plant-based climate activists with your endless word-salad soliloquies and diatribes about how you actually can care about Earth while consuming animals.

Because you can’t.

And while I don’t need to make abolishing animal exploitation beneficial to humans to justify it, I will absolutely tell you that, as non/antivegans, you’re apocalyptic’ing Earth just so you can scream how much you enjoy eating torn, bloody flesh and breastfeeding from innocents.

For stats, please read How Much Does Animal Agriculture Contribute to Climate Change?

And before you claim bias, just remember who’s profiting from telling you that you can kill animals while protecting dirt because “regenerative farming” is just … farming, the same as it has been done by people for centuries, just now spun with a super-cool word to disingenuously frame animal suffering as necessary to maintain soil health.

Soil health.

Not animal health.

Just wait until they come for your dogs as being necessary to maintain “soil health”. Still cool with that? How many planets will it take for healthy soil/unhealthy animals to feed 8 billion people? Only one planet is necessary to feed the same amount of people, we currently SHARE with animals, feeding plant-based foods.

Oh, and reducing isn’t meaningful to the animals who are forced to die for your climate-change fighting virtue signaling: if you can reduce to “help” the environment, you can eliminate for the most beneficial impact and to help THE ANIMALS who have the capacity to feel pain and suffer just as human animals do.

It’s sad how much vegans have to tell people that NOT HARMING is better than harming, so few people actually think about the absolute devastation they cause by destroying others’ lives. SL

We made Milk so that we could show the reality of the dairy industry from the perspective of those trapped within it. We never stop to think about what these animals are being forced to endure, so by highlighting the story of an individual mother, we hope that people will recognise that there is always a victim when we buy dairy products.

What happens to the mother cow is what happens to all female dairy cows. We specifically chose to show the standard legal practices to illustrate how ingrained and normalised the suffering of dairy cows is within the dairy industry.

The location of the farm and slaughterhouse are based on real locations that are considered high welfare and humane. What we show in Milk is literally the best of the best when it comes to dairy farming, yet, as soon we view what happens from the perspective of the mother cow, it becomes clear that this is an industry that runs on the exploitation and suffering of animals.

By using animation, we are able to show a unique perspective and tell the story of the mother cow in a way that cannot be done from investigative footage alone. Milk centres the cow as the protagonist of her own story and allows us to view what is happening to her from an up close and personal perspective.

Organic, free-range, high-welfare, humanely raised. It doesn’t matter what label we put on dairy products, all dairy cows are victims of an industry that forcibly impregnates them, takes their babies from them, exploits their bodies and then sends them to a slaughterhouse to cut their throats.

It’s time to end the dairy industry.

Why do you support laws that REQUIRE abject suffering rather than support the RESCUE of those who suffer?

Source DxE Right To Rescue



Source Wayne Hsiung, Twitter


DxE (Direct Action Everywhere) investigators face years in prison for exposing abuse inside a Smithfield pig farm & rescuing two piglets, read the background HERE. Observations of the trial can be read HERE.



And then answer ‘why’ if so:

If you cannot support The Right To Rescue , to SAVE rather than to VIOLENTLY KILL the most innocent, vulnerable, tormented beings, then what are you? What makes you, a human animal, so inhuman? Greed, indifference, entitlement, privilege? Are you afraid that, as has been observed in other social justice movements by those who reject those movements, “providing” others rights will require some of yours? That your rights will be compromised? That you will lose the ability to feel superior? That you desperately NEED to feel superior because your actions are inferior to what humans can be capable of?

I’ve seen and heard comments that malign and caustically define vegans as “lawbreakers/insane/extreme/disruptive/ugly/privileged/blahblahblah”.

It’s so people who effortlessly cause animal suffering can continue doing so because “the vegans” are the BAD ones, not the ones violently confining, mutilating, controlling, and killing unwilling, fearful, suffering animals.

If you need to characterize vegans who save animals as any of the above or similar, the problem is YOU and the words you manipulate and exploit to forgive your violent actions inflicted on the most vulnerable and innocent of all beings: nonhuman animals.

YOU are the inhuman, denying what is human.

Morality does not equal legality, you just pretend it does to remain comfortably complicit abusing others.

So before you start demanding that vegans be imprisoned for “breaking the law” while rescuing violated and abused beings, you should ask yourself why you support and actually celebrate “laws” that require abject violation, suffering, and violent death of those beings in the first place.

THAT’S inhuman.

Are you not capable of being human, of being better?

Jo-Anne McArthur Awarded Highly Commended in Wildlife Photographer Of The Year 2022

Life and Death in Fur Farming. Ten, now eight, mink kits in a nest box on a Swedish fur farm. These American mink kits fight for space and to reach their food. A sign indicates two have died. Though the legal cage size is now larger and a two-storey box a requirement for adult mink, with no more than two adults per cage, injuries still occur. Sweden, 2010. Jo-Anne McArthur / Djurrattsalliansen / We Animals Media


I think it’s striking that these images factually demonstrating abject animal suffering in the “fur industry” look exactly like the reality of abject suffering of animals in the “animal agriculture food industry” while, in the USA, the fur industry council degenerates like to boast that their victims on fur farms are executed onsite …

(via anal electrocution, for example, where humans physically restrain terrified creatures and insert rods into their anuses to electrocute them – while, interestingly, when humans get colonoscopies, for example, requiring anal insertion of instruments to capture colon images by people who must be educated, trained and certified to do so, which, by the way, is to prevent death versus causing it, humans actually get sedation)

… and therefore don’t require the horrors inherent in slaughter transportation. Imagine bragging that your death industry is marginally “better” than another death industry while ignoring the entire violent D-E-A-T-H requirement of innocent victims in both. If horrific transport is bad, actual violent killing is WORSE.

I wouldn’t expect anything other than deception and manipulation and abuse from the FAM folks in either, though. SL

This week we’ve got big news on our progress with getting animal stories in the media. Jo-Anne McArthur has been awarded Highly Commended in Wildlife Photographer of the Year for her image Life and Death in Fur Farming.

The image is one of 14 Highly Commended images announced on September 1 as a preview of this year’s competition, which attracted entries from photographers of all ages and experience levels from 93 countries. Jo-Anne is awarded in the category of Photojournalism.

Jo-Anne shares some words about the story behind this image and her hopes for its impact:


The first time I visited fur farms was in 2009. It was a shock to see the decrepit, putrid, mass incarceration of so many animals in so many sheds and tiny cages, offering me yet another of the many moments of disbelief that I experience in my career. I have since photographed fur farming extensively, especially in my home country of Canada, and it is with urgency that I wish for this unnecessary industry to end. I am so happy that we are seeing bans on fur farming in many countries, including those who have traditionally supported a large fur industry.

To say that I’m thrilled that WPY has awarded this mink farming image in their competition is an understatement, because the reason I do this investigative work is so that people can look, consider, discuss, critique, care, change. WPY offers this image of ten, now eight, mink kits and their mother in a cramped nesting box for the world to view. Many people do not know that animals are industrially farmed for their fur. They are unaware of the conditions. They are unaware that these animals are killed by gassing and anal electrocution, or that they are kept in tiny cages by the millions, globally, each year, so that we can wear fur trim, have fur pompoms on our hats, or a poof of fur on a child’s trinket.

I feel passionately about taking photos of fur farming so that the images can help campaigners and policy makers end this industry, and continue to raise awareness amongst the unknowing public. Images are a strong and crucial part of the puzzle when it comes to creating a kinder world for animals.

Jo-Anne McArthur, We Animals Media

Mink farming is an industry where, traditionally, the welfare of these semi‑aquatic, naturally solitary mammals has not been a priority unless it affects the fur. But in 2020, mink farming came under the spotlight when it became clear that not only could mink catch the Covid-19 virus, but that the virus could mutate in mink and be transmitted back to humans. In response, Denmark – then the largest mink-fur producer after China – shut down its industry, killing all 17 million animals, and in the Netherlands and Spain, hundreds of thousands were killed. But in Sweden, after a temporary ban on breeding, the government allowed its 20 or so farms to reopen in 2022.

Djurrattsalliansen, the non-profit organization Jo-Anne was working with when she took this photograph, has played a significant role in fur farm investigations in Sweden, which have helped to bring the number of farms down significantly.

“Humane slaughter” isn’t actually a thing, you know …

September 6, 2022
by

Let’s take a moment to consider the HSA (Humane Slaughter Act, or HMSA, Humane Methods of Slaughter Act), which was originally passed in 1958 in the US to ensure “humane treatment of animals” … in a SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

Spoiler alert: A slaughterhouse requires the violent death of animals, none of them willingly, all in fear, and causing abject suffering to the animal victims.

That’s not “humane”.

Nobody brings their companion animals to be “euthanized” in a slaughterhouse.

And the last time I saw actual slaughterhouse footage from the actual anag industry, was never ago.

And of the 10 billion animals slaughtered yearly in the US (just land animals, the billions of fish violently slaughtered yearly in the US, though, are ALSO exempt from the HSA), 9 billion poultry are specifically EXEMPT from the (oxymoronic) HSA.

For the non/antivegans out there who relentlessly push the idea that certain “stunning” procedures cause less suffering (admitting the slaughter therefore causes suffering), here’s a really uncomfortable truth for you: if you were honestly concerned about animals being inflicted with “minimal suffering” you would be vegan since “minimal suffering” would require NOT KILLING ANIMALS AT ALL.

It’s a death industry, folks, slaughterhouses don’t attract people who actually care about animals. Not to mention the violations upon violations upon violations of the HSA, which basically means the HSA is meaningless to the animal victims of it.

Just ask yourself: Who benefits from the HSA?

(Hint: being violently killed isn’t beneficial to the animals being violently killed, regardless of any euphemized descriptions you exploit to make YOURSELF feel comfortable causing the violent death of animals.)

And here’s the actual thing: stunning is not for the animal victims, it’s for the slaughterhouse employees or other butchers who kill animals, to protect humans from “violent animals” who desperately want to escape and live.

It’s preposterous to pretend that violently killing animals, after their brief existences of pain and violation, can ever be “humane” but to deceive others into believing the “stun” effect as important for animal welfare, is monstrous. Seriously. If it’s important for animals to be unconscious when being stabbed, gutted, dismembered, or bled out as required, then NOT KILLING ANIMALS IS MORE IMPORTANT.

Why are you still so brainwashed?



Stunning of pigs with CO2 is acknowledged to be cruel, abusive, and painful, if you’re not vegan, you support this hell:

From a previous article The Necessary Torture of Animals:

No laws can protect animals bred to be dead, why people champion regulations or laws that REQUIRE violent death, is bizarre. In slaughterhouses, where animals are violently killed after brief existences of suffering, there is NO REGULATION that can protect animals – it’s a SLAUGHTERHOUSE.

I disagree with the “transparency” term for the above reasons, same as I don’t praise CCTV in slaughterhouses: slaughterhouses are where animals go to violently die, how anyone can praise a recording of animals violently dying, is bizarre. If people are so happy to use CCTV as demonstrative of animal “protection”, what is more protective of animals than NOT KILLING ANIMALS?

Following a lawsuit, the USDA released the below records establishing the frequent torture that occurs IN ADDITION TO animal violation and suffering and violent death. It’s almost as if, despite the “humane-treatment-of-animals” mantra of anag cheerleaders, they’re admitting to the abject horrors defenseless animals are forced to endure: if killing animals is so “humane” there would be no reason to try to withhold slaughterhouse “violations”.

Veganism is the ONLY humane and the ONLY logical protection for animals. SL

The Case for Loosening the Rules of Veganism (aka, omnis desperately need credit for being “vegan” while sleeping …)

August 15, 2022
by
Earthling Ed YouTube


I’m going to add that the Faunalytics study that zillions of morally outraged antivegans exploit to – somehow – validate THEIR choice to commit animal cruelty, was dietary in nature, it was not based on veganism, but rather on plant-based diets: in other words, 84% of people on a diet, went off a diet, including – what was the number? – ah yes, 183 people who consumed only plants. 183. Imagine exploiting a study from years ago where 183 people who identified as plant-based dieters but went back to not being plant-based dieters, somehow validates the selfish, greedy, bloody habits of people TODAY who CHOOSE to consume animals, requiring animals’ violent exploitation. And don’t forget that, of the 1313 total participants who identified as having a former of current DIET of plants, that leaves 1130 VEGETARIANS – aka – OMNIVORES.

Prior to Ed’s video above, I never looked at the numbers, I always just demonstrated to people how it wasn’t about veganism at all but rather diets, which in and of itself, invalidates antivegan presumptions that veganism is “impossible/a trend/a fad/unsustainable/unhealthy/blahblahblah” versus a justice movement rejecting speciesism. But, now that I know the numbers, it’s even more pathetic that antivegans cheer the fact that 8 years ago 183 nonvegans resumed maximum animal cruelty as did 1130 other nonvegans.

(And if you’re one of “those people” who claim to have been vegan for 5 minutes in the ’80s but resumed consuming animals because your arms fell off, you were NEVER vegan; plant-based diets have been consistently proven to be more beneficial to health than eating flesh and pathogens from decomp, and to openly promote animal suffering vs say, NOT, means you had zero concern for animals. Ever. Especially since these people never talk about the vegan/cruelty-free items they still use and how their wardrobe doesn’t include leather or fur and how they actively reject animal entertainment.)

This is what antivegans desperately base their arguments on? What a bold look.

As for “redefining” veganism to include animal suffering so it’s not so “strict”, there already is a definition for that: omnivorism, for weak and indecent animal abusers indignant because vegans exist to remind them that the ACTUAL victims are the animals they effortlessly violate and violently kill. I mean, according to these antivegan intellectual giants, even prevegan I was “vegan” while sleeping and while not consuming flesh since I never really liked much of it.

(And for sure, to the whiny indignants whose tears are saturated with feigned victimization, you abuse animals because humans didn’t ask nicely enough for you to NOT abuse animals? Really? Who do you normally blame when convenient vegan scapegoats aren’t around?)

Get over it: if you’re convinced that reducing flesh consumption by some arbitrary percentage is “good” then try to convince the animals you DO kill that their violent destruction is therefore somehow “good” as well – ??? – . If you can reduce – and you know you can – you can eliminate, no animal volunteers to die because you “do enough”. Nobody praises mass murderers for killing 20 and not 30 beings; to acknowledge not killing 10 is good, then NOT killing ANY establishes what is “ethical”. Antivegans always pretend that third option doesn’t exist.

Oh, and even if you DON’T agree rejecting animal exploitation is good; or if you don’t agree that animals deserve moral consideration; or if you don’t agree human decency inherently requires antispeciesism, I honestly am 100% indifferent to you being “forced” to NOT abuse animals: your OPINION invalidating the sentience of others because you’re incapable of decency doesn’t give you permission to commit it. I don’t maintain that animals deserve moral consideration just because some humans believe they do; I maintain that, even if humans dgaf, which is usually the case, animals STILL deserve a nonexploitative existence separate from human beliefs and characterizations.

In today’s video I look at an article that addresses the Eric Adams ‘Fishgate’ situation by advocating for the rules of veganism to become loosened so that veganism is less strict. I analyse the author’s arguments and provide my own commentary on whether or not I agree with the proposed idea.
