Slavery, Speciesism, Bigotry, Hate - It's All Connected
Nonhuman Justice - The Final EnlightenmentI'm happy to pass on the discovery of a new web site that explores the similarity of oppressions. This site, Nonhuman Slavery, features an informative and challenging collection of essays, quotes and video presentations addressing the connections between speciesism, racism and sexism. It appears the editor is taking a broad approach and representing views from various philosophers, academics, historic figures and modern-day activists.
And on that note of embracing objective knowledge, I'd also like to post a pertinent video regarding the need for liberation from all "isms". "Thinking is Required" is a peta production. While I disagree with many things associated with peta, I certainly agree with the opinions in this video regarding oppressions: It's all connected.
On a final note I wish Nonhuman Slavery much success in getting the message of truth out to a wide audience of engaged people. If the comments recently left on one of my blog entries is any indication - We can see without doubt that those who discriminate against nonhumans have no problem casting the same prejudices- "even" against those of their own species. The hateful language, the racist attacks and obvious bigotry are a prime example of how urgently we need to fix the irrational and often violent views of those who think "others" are undeserving of respect. Thank you Nonhuman Slavery - This voice of reason amidst the bowels of ignorance is long overdue!
