Do you think people trying to connect with slave owner is what ended slavery? Because I thought it was the civil war. So maybe attacking evil is more effective than empathizing with it?
Just a thought...
Did negotiating with Hitler end the holocaust? I thought it was WWII... the list goes on. The point is people doing evil things normally don't change their mind because of kind discourse, they normally get forced to change kicking and screaming by war, protest, and legal reform. I don't think you being nice is going to change the lives of those animals any more than me being "mean". Those people don't care what we think! OP has never been back and the guy in the video has no clue about this conversation.
Change comes from people becoming aware that there is an issue, and working to change that.....the civil war was a lot more complicated than simply about slavery, but still it required people changing their thoughts, growing up becoming enlightened. WW2 is in no way comparable, that was madman, not 100's of years of tradition and culture to overcome.
I should have know this wasn't the place for me after a post I made got edited because I called a man who punched a horse in the face repeatedly a "monster" :o
Guess I'm off to find a new forum with animal loving, people hating crazies like me!
Happy riding y'all!
I wish you all kinds of luck, but you will struggle to change the world with that attitude....you have fire and passion, but when the going gets a little tough you pack up and move? See this sums it up nicely.....you want to REALLY change things, instead of having online squabbles, you have to work with people and educate.....Standing on some supposed moral high ground because we are fortunate enough to live in part of the world where food is plentiful so we get to choose what we eat, where we are affluent enough to keep animals as companions and pets, rather than working animals, where we treat those animals better than we treat a lot of people, will not bring about the change you are seeking.
Education, financial aid, practical hands on help, understanding why, and moving things in the right direction, this is what makes change.
