Discussions about specific materials / The Fog of Trade War
« Last post by E.A.S on May 04, 2018, 01:52:00 AM »
Today high-level talks between Chinese and American officials take place after a period of trade tensions, as relations between the two have deteriorated, and both started imposing high tariffs on one another. As always in these trade wars, animals are caught in the cross fire. They are no more than another commodity.

This time animals are most affected by these economic events as soybeans – the crop used to sustain their exploitation – is a major item on the tariff list, used as a leverage in this clash. 

The international soybeans flow is crucial in determining the extent of animal abuse around the globe, making recent events very consequential.  This is another horrific remainder what forces really shape the fate of animals, and what little impact morality has in the world.

Discussions about specific materials / Earth Day

Not that Earth Day is or ever was about non-human animals, but we address this day anyway since many AR activists tend to adopt some of the environmental rhetoric.
The motivation behind it is unquestionable, AR activists are recruiting ecological claims as a tactical move for the sake of animals. What is questionable is whether animals are benefiting from this use. This is questionable not only for the long run in relation to the more theoretical and ideological aspects of the status of nonhuman animals. Some effects are immediate and practical, and may lead to even more animal suffering. That is the focus of this post.

Discussions about specific materials / World Day for the End of Fishing

Today is World Day for the End of Fishing, a new initiative that asks for the abolition of fishing and fish farming.
This day is an exception to the rule which, to a large extent, is a disregard of fishes’ suffering by the AR community - an issue discussed in the following post.

There is an ongoing fuss in the past week over some press coverage of British farmers claiming they were threatened by vegan activists.
Many of the activists’ responses are defensive, arguing that they can’t be violent since they are advocators of non-violent approach. Activists should be defensive but not because of manipulative farmers and sensationalist media, but since the non-violent approach is actually violent.

The following post explains why so

A study published a few days ago, found that frequent armed conflicts are the most important factor explaining wildlife populations decline. On the face of it, it sounds quite obvious, however, twistedly, it is not that simple.

We have done some serious updating and renovations of all of our materials. From the website appearance, through factual data in the articles, the arguments in the visual arguments, new and renewed answers in the FAQ, and most importantly - we updated our Manifesto.

This renovation as well as the blog, are part of our efforts to make our ambitious project more accessible and comprehensive.
Discussions about specific materials / It Is Not Humans That We Hate
« Last post by E.A.S on December 10, 2017, 07:13:32 AM »
Today is Human Rights Day. As opposed to what might be the first intuition about our project, we are not human haters. In fact we discuss humans as victims in several of our materials (for the full list of our materials please click to reach the post). Human hatred is not our motivation. We are not promoting the annihilation idea out of hate. We don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone. On the contrary, we want that all bad things never happen to anyone.

Discussions about specific materials / Unthankful Taking
« Last post by E.A.S on November 23, 2017, 12:17:00 PM »
It seems to be absurd that even the day that symbolizes humans’ gratitude to god, nature and everything around them, they celebrate by ignorance, violence and contempt to everything around them.
But is it really?

Discussions about specific materials / World Vegan Day

Today is World Vegan Day.
Veganism is often considered as the solution to the world suffering. That’s one of the main reasons why it is so important to emphasis how veganism is part of the problem. Not only since it involves so much suffering, but also since being perceived as the solution, better options are not even seriously considered.

If you are aware of the problems with veganism, feel free to directly go to our suggested option specified in our manifesto.
If you are not aware of the harms and issues involving veganism, please start with our answer to the question why not work hard to make a vegan world  and then please read the post Vegan Violence and the article Vegan Suffering.
Please read it open-mindedly. We are aware that despite everything detailed in it, veganism is still the best option possible. That’s why we are vegans ourselves. However, acknowledging that veganism - with all its major flaws and inherent cruelties - is the best option, is why we are not vegan advocators. The realization that the best option is so horrible is one of the major reasons why we are calling you to stop focusing on making a vegan world and start trying to make a sufferingless world.

Discussions about specific materials / World Vegetarian Day
« Last post by E.A.S on October 01, 2017, 05:33:06 AM »
For the 40th World Vegetarian Day we discuss the continual existence and all the more so the popularity of vegetarianism, in an age of abundantly available information about the violent industries vegetarians participate in.
It is not a post dedicated to bashing vegetarians, it is a post about humans in general and how they always look for the easier option no matter how unreasonable it is.
