Kevin, you mention denial by animal rights advocates. Here are a few things that you seem to be in denial of:|
1. Life is an interconnected web.
2. People who torture and kill other people many times start by torturing animals.
3. An injury to one is an injury to all. This does not just apply people to people. It applies to the entire web of life. Everything we do eventually comes back to us in some form or another. Cut down the trees and pave everything over? No air to breath. Kill the wolves? Crops get eaten by overpopulating deer. Drive a gas guzzling SUV with lousy pollution controls? Your country becomes dependent on foreign oil, supports corrupt regimes and gets attacked by angry Middle Easterners looking for revenge. You also help degrade the air we all breathe. If you want to talk about the real world and denial Kevin, look in the mirror first.
How humans relate to the natural world of which we are part is an indication of how we treat each other. Humans are not a separate island of life, immune from natural law and universal consequences.
