Should Animals Be Doing More For Animal Rights?

Lots of PETA-related conversation today. Surprising and informative.

Let's hear another perspective. The Onion perspective.

What Was Your Winston Smith Moment?

Half a lifetime ago I had a brief conversation that changed my worldview forever. I learned that the internet, which at the time I had yet to ever use, had things called bulletin boards and forums, and that it also had people like my co-worker, who was excited to start training for a job as an 'internet cop' as he called it...

In the intervening 18 years I've read, heard and viewed countless crazy 'new world order' stories but the one I know for sure is true is the one that happened to me and no one else. I call it my 'Winston Smith Kodak Moment'. Recall in the book 1984 by Eric Blair/George Orwell, Winston had seen a very damning photograph which his captors were very interested in:

'Some years ago you had a very serious delusion indeed. You believed that three men, three one-time Party members named Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford — men who were executed for treachery and sabotage after making the fullest possible confession - were not guilty of the crimes they were charged with. You believed that you had seen unmistakable documentary evidence proving that their confessions were false. There was a certain photograph about which you had a hallucination. You believed that you had actually held it in your hands. It was a photograph something like this.’

'1984' p. 311 http://www.planetebook.com/ebooks/1984.pdf

O'Brien then tortures him and uses other techniques to erase the memory of the photograph from Winston's memory. More than just a plot device, the photograph to me represents the knowing, the absolute knowing I have that my world is a malevolent technocracy. My personal 'Winston Smith Kodak Moment' has more weight than all the books, all the Alex Jones rants, all the youtube videos combined. The photograph had to be erased from Winston's memory because of what it represented - proof that Winston had a mind that operated independently of Big Brother.

Have you ever had a Winston Smith Moment???

I tell my critters all the time

A Good Start

Animals should try not to taste delicious.

There is a humane way...

...to raise and kill animals for food and an inhumane way. Animals have a God-given right to not be tortured to death, which is the practice of factory farms.

So delicious.

so doggone delicious.
