Ethics Into Action: Henry Spira and the Animal Rights Movement by Peter Singer, around 2000 (?)

I think this is an excellent book, on both animal rights and activism in general.

Quote:

' . . In Singer's estimation, Spira's "unique campaigning methods have done more to reduce animal suffering than anything done in the previous 50 years by vastly larger organ-isations with millions of dollars at their disposal". . '

I have been drinking a lot more milk lately to help me gain weight and my autism certainly has not gotten worse.

I would never ever have suspected Kraichgauer or Misslizard of marrow-mindedness...

I support the rights of animals and of nature too, but making unsupported claims just to gain attention and offend people isn't the right way. We as the AS community are for the most part animal and nature lovers too, so why would they want to alienate potential supporters?

:scratch:

I would hardly call Misslizard or myself narrow minded, but are just having a little fun. I whole heartedly agree, food animals are treated abysmally, and great care for their welfare should be taken. But the fact remains, few humans today - or ever - have wholly been vegetarians, and that being the fact, it's dishonest for PETA to try to use misinformation to get us to change our historic diets. Remember, the woman who coined the phrase "Wrong Planet," Temple Grandin, herself designs more humane holding cages for food animals - but never once has she denied that domesticated animals should provide meat for humans.

Misslizard, yep, I was just joking - I thought a marrow was better known in the US? I tend to forget different countries have different names for things which we may take for granted. I would never call you or Bill narrow minded, just the opposite in fact!

I'm sorry - as an Aspie, it's sometimes difficult for me to understand when someone is serious, and when someone is joking. :oops:

The potatoes already have their eyes on you.
