In this country, we go steal livestock and imprison the humans who owned them because they are guilty of "animal cruelty" when they "let" them starve. No one EVER ASKS if the human was starving, too. And no one ever offers to feed the animals or the human. There are ads on craigslist every day asking for feed donations to help with livestock that has been "rescued." Why not put that ad up for the person? How do you pretend you are "rescuing" an animal from starvation if you have to beg for donations to feed it?
This lack of empathy for our neighbors is what leads to the callousness that lets you eat your own child.
