    The entire animal world on one gigantic eating frenzy to stay alive. It's nature, and it's built-in. And animals feel no sympathy for the eaten. Even less so when you move down the chain. Can you imagine insect empathy? I don't think so.

    Jane Goddall, someone I admire greatly, thought the chimpanzee a superior animal till she saw them warring on other chimp tribes and actually killing chimp babies. She was actually disgusted and disappointed in them for awhile.

    But as my mother used to say, "they don't know any better."

      Honestly, to the extent that this is a moral question, the moral burden is one we, and we alone, bear.  They may not know better; the question is "should we?"  That's not an easy question.

        fucking LOVE your arrogance.

        This is why people like you blow potential allies like me away.
        You are fucking clueless, aren't you? I'll bet you're a joy to be around with your holier-than-thou bullshit.
