My bitch snuggles up to me. She is trembling all over and panting because she is scared of the approaching thunderstorm. I stroke her and give her reassurance. She can only really relax when the thunderstorm is over. No, it would be out there in the wilderness, not capable of survival, and yet I am convinced that only freedom is species-appropriate. “If you take that seriously,” I am told, “then we would have to put all animals, domestic animals, farm animals, and working animals in front of the door and we shouldn’t be allowed to look after them anymore. Pretty perverse attitude. So, you’d let them go rock hard?“Weiterlesen
Human, do you know what it feels like when your family is destroyed?
Can you understand how I suffer
When I get pregnant every year
Just so that my child will be snatched away from me
My girl they put in the calf crate
Where I can hear them
Call out to her
And yet I can’t take care of her
whom they put in the van,
One more baby
To send him thousands of kilometers to his death.
In the middle of spring, the time of blooming, I felt myself fading. Just at the time of the new beginning, I sensed an end in myself. During that hopeful time, desolation reigned in me. Paralyzing abandonment and sluggish slimy absence of noises, not even silence, reigned in me. The spring had dried up where it had just bubbled so abundantly, and when I stepped outside the door, just to go around the lake to do something, when I walked across the meadow, I set a certain goal Eyes, the going away, and the return, then I saw him.Weiterlesen
„Anything that can be misunderstood will also be misunderstood“, should be another axiom of communication or at least be given as a warning, because you can actually turn everything that has a little content in such a way that the content is deliberately devalued or vice versa becomes. This is also the case with the sentence by PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk „A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy“. Quite apart from the fact that this is a highly condensed statement about the nature of the living, probably a little striking, but completely insightful in the basic essence, if you want to have an insight. Now, however, it is quite common to boycott the sentences of those who see themselves as lawyers for our non-human fellow creatures.Weiterlesen
All parents want only the best for their children, at least that’s what they say. Words are patient and interpretations are much more. What do parents mean by the best for their children? Of course, health, then a good education, so that one day they will have a job that will enable them to live on their salary and their own family and friends. In short, the best thing for our children is to live a happy life. So far, so understandable and good. But how the good, happy life should look like, you tell the children. Up to a certain age, this makes sense and is understandable, but most parents tend to want to keep an eye on their children, which makes them happy, instead of giving them the chance to find out for themselves. After all, adults have no life experience and young people don’t, so they know exactly what is right and wrong, but above all what is good for you. Actually, a terrible hubris, because how is a person supposed to find his way when he is constantly being told that there is only one, namely the one assigned to him?Weiterlesen
Of course, meat eating is a private matter. After all, it does not matter to anyone what lands on my plate and then in my stomach. It is a private matter if, for me, 150,000,000,000 animals are maltreated, mutilated, abused and cruelly killed each year. It is a private matter that my consumption of meat destroys biodiversity and biodiversity. Likewise, it is a private matter that more and more people starve to death or are expelled from their land because of my meat consumption. And of course, it is also a private matter that this destroys the climate and nature. Everything private. The vegans do not need to come here and believe that one could score with facts, because what I do not want to hear, I am shoving under the label „proselytizing“ and already it is discredited. And the more aggressive they are, the more right they are.Weiterlesen
