A blog for animal-welfare using academic research, scientific studies, practical ethics, and moral philosophy to help end your days of ignorance. As Marc Bekoff states, "human beings are part of the animal kingdom, not apart from it. The separation of 'us' and 'them' creates a false picture and is responsible for much suffering. It is part of the in-group/out-group mentality that leads to human oppression of the weak by the strong as in ethnic, religious, political and social conflicts."
"Saying you are on top of the food chain because you have a gun is like saying you are stronger than a body builder because they have their hands tied behind their back. It’s easy to come out of a situation on top when it is rigged to your advantage."
