I say, Mr. Bisno, James is letting you off lightly. It is one thing to recognise that animals, being non-conceptual, don't have rights; it is quite another to say that one should impose limitless suffering on them for one's own convenience because one *does* have rights. Precisely because *we* are conceptual, we can generalise our experience of pain - & its anti-life nature - & seek, as a logical, human extension of our identification - to avoid/minimise it in our treatment of non-conceptual beings. That, at least, is what any *decent* human being would do.
*Your* argument, Mr Bisno, is that because animals cannot do so, we, who have choice, should behave exactly as they, who do not have choice, behave. That marks you out as a sick, evil fuck. Lithium is not the answer for monsters like you - the treatment you would mete out to animals is.
I had the incomparable joy of the company of a female German Shepherd dog for fourteen years. It didn't match the quality of my human relationship at that time, but it was close, for both Glenn and me. If you had come to her, intent on "grinding her up & letting her suffer any hell" that served your life, *you* would not be alive today, because *I* would have murdered you, & humanity would be better off for *her* existence & your non-existence. Take this crap back to the ARI where it belongs, you Mengelian psycho!!
