Animal Rights


Vegetarian?

There are many good reasons for reducing meat in your diet including:

However, I consider the argument that killing animals is cruel to be bogus. What is the alternative? Letting an animal get old and arthritic with failing kidneys and die slowly? Surely that entails far more suffering that a quick bolt to the brain. The other alternative is to ensure the animal is never born. I would think a free range cow would be happy for a chance to exist, even if life ended suddenly. Vegetarians consider eating meat disgusting. However, the cow does not care what happens to its corpse. The normal thing in nature is for corpses to be eaten. All that matters to the cow is how well it is treated while it is alive.

Fudging the Counts

As of 2010-04-11, the US military claims it has killed only 4000 Afghan civilians, all by mistake. This is absurd. When you drop bombs on cities you know that 50% of the victims will be children simply because 50% of the people in the buildings you blow up in Afghanistan are children. Half of the rest will be women. Only a small fraction will be combatants. There is nothing at all accidental about the killing. The military don’t count the over 1,000,000 civilians they starved and froze to death in the first winter of the war by cutting off all supplies including humanitarian aid. They also don’t count kills by special forces or contractors.
