Quote# 131484

I used to agree with you, but now I think liberating sentient, conscious beings from ecperimentation, cruelty and suffering is a noble endeavour. It might be short sided since it fails to adress the institutionalization of cruelty, but the only reason we feel hopeless of the idea of veal made of baby cows and not baby humans is because of the desensitazion of our cultures speceism.

Corporations have drafted laws that equate liberating animals with terrorism because they are considered property. They are slaves. Massive government surveillance is supposed to quell dissent, but I think it is going to have the opposite effect. Again I dont disagree with you. Direct action is ineffective because it doesnt adress the root of the issue. But what about the underground railroad before the emancipation proclomation?

Would freeing slaves from cotton farms be wrong if the government had called you a terrorist?

The law is always slow to catch up with reality because corporations are so entrenched, but I still think the ALF is made up of kind hearted people who just feel so deeply. My direct action is talking to people. Leafletting. Posting on social media. Flyers. Getting the word out. The ALF's direct action is a lot more ballsy, mission-IMPOSSIBLE 21st century underground-railroad-for- animals status.

And so when the law is immoral, resistance is obligatory. I admire what they do and respect them. If any of you are out there on r/vegan I send you all my love and follow up as much as possible with the latest NSA leaks.

Oh, now it's a "noble endeavour"? "Underground-railroad"? Are you really sure you want to be known as someone who compares ANIMALS to the slaves who were freed in the Civil war?

Pretentious asshole vegan.

Those slaves were human. A not-so-little difference.

Did you blurn down the houses and drop the surviving slaves off in the middle of unfamiliar territory with no supplies or euthanise them afterwards?

What about the Underground Railroad? Are you planning to take them back to their natural habitat?

The Southern states were outraged and it resulted in a Civil War. Not to mention the slaves were fellow human beings with the ability to think, reason, etc. Animals are not like humans.

@Cloe. comparing the plight of animals to slaves is probably not the best thing to do but animals can think and reason, science experiments have shown this.
