"Without a global revolution in the sphere of human consciousness nothing will change for the better." Vaclav Havel
October 15, 2011 - Occupy Wall Street has grown to Occupy World - a movement for social, economic, and political change. If an international crusade is successful in uniting the diverse activists and organizations, and if thereís an ethical revaluation of current values, perhaps thereís hope for all of the oppressed beings and our Earth. A capitalist lifestyle and its global practices have brought us to the brink of destruction. Animals used as resources, routinely and wrongfully condemned to diabolical abuses and death. Why? For the economy, for manís end. The impetus for reform is a moral one and begins with you. The innocent and voiceless cannot unite and speak for themselves, so I do. Carmina Gooch
Obedience to law depends upon the active support of the moral sentiments of the people. Laws which are not supported by the moral conscience of the people are liable to become dead letters. (Source: Relationship between Law and Morality or Ethics)
Going by what the current law says as to what is right and wrong is the lowest form of moral development.
********* How the hell can we stop animal cruelty in this country...what will it take? No one in authority gives a damn. **********
The pioneers of justice are the great names of history. The names of those who tried to prevent them are lost in forgotten landfills.
Animal rights moves forward in Europe; AW Party wins; AU under pressure, Canada lags behind; time for an Animal Charter of Rights & Freedoms; WTO hinders global progress; NZ legally recognizes animals as sentient beings
New Swiss law enshrines rights of 'social' animals; investing in animal welfare; WTO 'morals' decision
If we want to change things, and move towards a world without cruelty, then we need a revolution. Vernon Coleman, author Animal Rights Human Wrongs
Justice for animals is the social movement of our times and we must all participate to make it a reality. Itís long overdue. Carmina Gooch
'When so much mistreatment of animals continues, when the cries of thirsty beasts from our railway cars die out unheard, when so much brutality prevails in our slaughterhouses, when animals meet a painful death in our kitchens, when animals suffer incredibly from merciless men and are turned over to the cruel play of children, WE ALL BEAR THE GUILT FOR IT. Albert Schweitzer on "Altruism"
