People Who Dare - LP934

Voltaire quote

Gary Francione for Animal Rights Commentary. www.animal-law.org

What characteristic or "defect" is it that animals have that justifies our treatment of them as our slaves, as our things, as property that exists only for the sake of us, the human masters?

To say that we can exploit animals because we are "superior" is nothing more than to say that we are more powerful than they. And nothing more. And, most of us reject the view that might makes right. So why, do tell, is that principle so blindly embraced when it comes to our treatment of animals? The reality is that we progressives like to think that we have eschewed all vestiges of slavery from our lives, but the reality is that we are all slave owners, the plantation is the earth, sown with the seeds of greed, and the slaves are our nonhuman sisters and brothers.
