General Discussion / End All Suffering Blog
« Last post by E.A.S on July 06, 2015, 01:19:52 AM »
We’ve started a blog.
here is the address: http://www.onlyonesolution.org/blog

We’ll use it as another platform to further deepen our vision of a conceptual, philosophical movement with substantial practical activistic agenda who doesn’t passively long for a “doomsday” event that would stop all the suffering, but looks for ways to actively bring it.

We will try to convince you activists that your responsibility is not what you eat or what the tiny fraction of humans you might potentially affect eat, but what each and every one, in each and every place on this planet is doing in every single moment, since the suffering is everywhere all of the time.

Obviously animal activists wishing for the planet to be wiped out, is not new. Many activists say they would press the button when asked the hypothetical question, but very few are willing to dedicate their lives to create such a button. Our goal is to change that.

The fact that the problem is so immensely huge that it’s almost impossible to really comprehend, leads too many activists to passively think big but actively work small. We want to change that so activists would think huge and act huge. Think global and act global.

Today is Saint Joan's Day, commemorating Saint Joan the Baptist, who is believed to be born on the 24th of June, the day most nations celebrate the holiday.
In Spain, the mother lode of torturous festivals, they have several different interpretations of the holiday, all are highly violent and oppressive expressions of humans’ dominance over animals.

The following are the worst three, taken from the article about global festivals called Celebrating Suffering:

Ciutadella on Menorca
Bano de Las Cabras
El Toro de Coria

General Discussion / What It Takes To Be A Celebrity

Temple Grandin

There was once a woman who empathized to such a degree with the poor poor animals that she took it upon herself to ask their captors, tormentors and enslavers if she could do anything to help them. By "them" I do of course mean to say, to help the captors, tormentors and enslavers do a better job of capturing, tormenting and enslaving.

Truly, I am ...not surprised to find that this woman is so incredibly popular. Wherever one goes they are confronted with quips, quotes and general hero worship regarding Temple Fuckin' Grandin. It's everywhere.

So, let's really have a think about this...

We have a woman who went to a concentration camp and saw a way to make the process of extermination "more efficient". +X deaths per minute = +Y Capital (Etymologically, Capita = Skull, Capital Wealth of Human = X Head of Slaves)

So, hypothetically and metaphorically, if Mrs. Hugglebunny were to travel to one of the many US prison camps - conveniently placed in countries that have no treaties or laws with regards too torture and extermination - and started to place signs on the walls of these prison camps directing prisoners to the torture chambers, not only would Mrs. Hugglebunny get paid by the people inflicting the torture, because those directions made it quicker and easier to torture more people in less time, but Hugglebunny would also be a celebrity when she got back home. Everybody would be quoting her every word as genius and buying her books telling the glorious masses about how we all need to torture people because it makes us all feel better and how to put directions to interrogation chambers in the corridors of prisons to make life easier for the poor, suffering and overworked "information extraction technicians" perpetrating torture on those incarcerated for...having certain religious beliefs? different color skin?...so...existing as who they are, really!?

That's what it takes to be a celebrity to humanity...?

Sure looks that way.

The celebrations of the St. George Festival are starting today in many places in the world.
On April 22nd, the second day of the St. George Festival, in Chieuti, Italy, a traditional – oxen race is conducted between the town’s 4 districts. Each, races with a wagon weighing over 200kg, which is carried by two oxen for 3 miles, accompanied by a dozen "humane spurs" on horsebacks, from the countryside to the main streets.

The preparations begin months before the race, when the oxen and horses are trained for endurance and strength since oxen are not built to run at full speed for 3 miles, and all the more so, carrying such a heavy wagon.  Already harnessed to the wagon, the oxen are taken to church to receive blessing before the race.

The race starts with the turning of the wagon and the run begins. There are two people on the wagon pulled by the two oxen and 12 to 15 men on horseback around it armed with poles topped with a metal tip that are used to prod the oxen to run faster.

In the end of this intensive and stressful race, which takes place in the heat of midday with constant beating by the riders and constant shouting by the crowd, the oxen are sore and hurt. They bleed from the nose because humans aggressively pull a ring attached to it before and during the race and they bleed from the hips because of all the spiking. The horses are also injured from this aggressive race and both are totally exhausted.

But all the stress, blood and pain is not in vain…
the winning district gets to carry the statue of St. George the next day, as well as 80 pounds of cheese!
This specific abuse, of this specific town, on this specific day, is part of a huge chain of animal tortures all over the world by hundreds of millions of humans in thousands of places, as you can see in the article celebrating suffering.  

Please stop trying to stop each of them and deal with how to stop it all. Forever.

Sure. The first one with the huge built-in aquarium cabinet bed is a direct continuation of the former slideshow "Thought you've seen it all" and is a form of extreme objectification of fish for humans’ sick pleasures that we didn’t come across when we made it.

The second one is taken from a camels beauty pageant during a festival called Bikaner Camel Festival dedicated to the most exploited animal in the arid areas of the world. You can read more about it in the section of India in the article Celebrating Suffering

The third is taken from an annual skiing contest for animals, conducted by a Chinese ski site in Sanmenxia to attract human visitors on nonhumans’ expense, as usual.
You can read more about it in the article When it comes to suffering the ingenuity is limitless

The forth is of a new trend in zoos and "animal corners" around the world which invite humans to take pictures siting on the backs of wild animals. Of course the "wilder" and stronger the poor animal is the greater the thrill and sense of power and domination humans feel.

The fifth is taken from the annual heaviest pig contest during the Pigs of God Festival in Taiwan.
These pigs are kept in tiny enclosures and are force-fed for about two years, until they weigh 10 times more than their normal weigh. At some point they are incapable of standing. They often suffer from organ failure and pressure sores caused by lying down for long periods of time. To get them even fatter, some owners castrate the pigs without anesthesia.
Days before the contest, the pigs are force-fed sand and heavy metals like lead, to make them as heavy as possible. On the day of the festival, they are brutally dragged in front of a huge crowd, onto a scale to determine this year’s winner. After the scale, the pigs are publicly slaughtered in front of the thousands of spectators who are not empathic to the shrieking pigs. After the murder, the pigs are painted, put up on colorful floats and paraded around the city.

The sixth is of the donkey taxi-station in the village of Mijas in Malaga Spain. In many touristic areas around the world, especially in Spain and Greece, donkeys are used as live taxis. You can read more about it in the article When it comes to suffering the ingenuity is limitless

The Seventh is of a slot machine game for lobster catching, often called Lobster Zone cranes or the sub marine catcher. These torture machines are spread around restaurants, bars and hotels around the world. Some offer to cook the caught lobster on the spot, as another incentive as if one is needed.

The last one is of one of the thousands of bulls tortured in hundreds of villages around Spain during the annual festival Toro Jubilo. They are called Toro de Fuego (Bull of Fire) and each festival, to the joy of thousands of humans, they are violently forced to function as live torches and fireworks machines.
This festival is very popular in Catalonia (called there Bou Embolat), the region which recently banned bullfighting but "forgot" the rest of the bulls’ torturing rituals. Two months after the bullfighting ban the same panel (The tribune of the Parliament of Catalonia) voted to regulate and shield other bull torturing events (called Correbous) including the Bou Embolat.
Obviously the bullfighting outlaw was a political decision motivated by the autonomy aspiration of the Catalan nationalists advocating to segregate from Spain. They didn’t want to stop the abuse but to distinguish the Spanish torture style from theirs.

You can read more about Toro Jubilo in the section of Spain in the article Celebrating Suffering

And if you are interested in the Catalan bullfighting ban you can read a little bit more about it in the article Torture Education Institutions and the slideshow Political Compassion
