It is my belief that a human life is no more precious than an animal's. Unlike a lot of folks, I don't let my senseless arrogance get in the way. Being a human doesn't make you "better" than everything else. We're here for the same reason as anything else, to live and blah blah blah. I'll respect differences in opinions so long as you don't demand that respect from me. Also don't tell me my opinion is wrong and yours is right either. That implies that you think you're better than me. We're all human and no one is better than anyone else. I don't care if your IQ is 30 or 200 or if you are a criminal. I will compare an animal to a child, any day, and nothing anyone says or does will change my opinion otherwise.
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”
— Dr. Seuss
Oh my. I live by this quote. Nothing explains me better.
