Vivisection Is A Social Evil (Book) - 5/4/2011 11:20:00 AM|
I'm against it; in every case there is a non-violent alternative that often is not chosen because they don't "see it as convenient." I also try to live in every way and in every purchase "cruelty free" - when i see a product or food is a cause of violence I shun it or find an alternative...including vitamins, personal hygeine items that do not use animal products or tested on them.
Glad to see you are writing with "social relevance" and uplifting our society's conscience.
best regards, michael

Who's for Chicken Lib? (Article) - 2/20/2013 12:22:29 PM
Linden, it's an almost impossible task you are setting for meat eaters to follow, it's not nourishment that claims the life of these poor creatures, but aquired taste, cultivated since mommies first spoonful. You'd have to change the habits from the baby stage on, and that proves difficult, unless all mothers would see the light, and change. Being a vegan is being certainly more compassionate, be it we don't find out that plants perceive their mistreatment at human hands. I am a great believer in the 'Fijian tradition of hunting and eating longpig, there are enough stock to feed the rest of the world, with deminishing results, a perfect scenario, would'nt you think; it would certainly in time, eradicate the plight we've become to this planet; I shall do my part and send your efforts on to my friends, with appreciation, and hugs!

Would we not honour more, to heal their wounds, their sore, would it not, the cries that were, we, with "all" that died would share?
Until then, the Poppy red, would have it's say,
in Flanders Field I beg it stay,
to honour all that gave their life's
where still it by the millions thrives. Hugs.

"CARING" Compassion in action, only a soul that would truly care, would want to know, you are such a soul. We don't spend much time today, asking questions as such you asked, it is our loss.
I am blessed to know you, thank you! Jasmin Horst

Humans, Animals and Ethics (Article) - 11/23/2011 1:06:01 PM
Oh, Linden how most precious to know that there are like you, some that care for whatever reason, and as you said, caring is what should give humanity a larger compass to read from and finally find unity of spirit and soul in all its excistance. I would certainly be a world worthwhile living in, given parameters that value all life as precious, the bumblebee, the rose, the chickadee, as well as you and me. I just came back from a two hour walk in the forest, first snow and all, to bring some extra happiness to little creatures , some peanuts and sunflower seeds, and some old meat for the ravens, and going across a bridge, even the seagulls approached me, one sat on my hand to snatch a morsel. One has to have a pretty long nose to look down on, not to see and appreciate the beauty in all life, and the preciousness contained therin. The world is in deep trouble if our attitude don't change, it is amazing how far down the ladder we have evolved, hell must be right close to our feet, when one has to defend the ethics of what should be. I wonder, if let us say, that if this, in the first paragraph scientist be threatened of his life with torture, applying his thinking, how long it would take him to recant his shallow attitude. Your example of the camps, need to mention, the Nazis, superiority, the masterrace, etc, everything or anyone else did not count and were thought of as inferior, and maybe only useful for experiments, murder,etc...your first mentioned scientist fits right in that order. I always wondered that after all the rewrites of the biblical text, by Ceasars and Popes etc, Jesus did in actuallity mean, what you do to the least of,,,I have him painted with my little pooch in his arms, for a being of love and the son of the creator, I'd probably be right, by saying he was much more inclusive, an act of love is in it's own self inclusive, animals act out of caring and love, what higher beings could there be? Hugs!

I chose a vegetarian lifestyle, not only for the health that is God given in Genesis chapter 1, but also to avoid what must be the horror of modern slaughterhouses. Yet after 30 years, I come as all of us have to see how even the most seemingly benign lifestyles are wrecking death on our world and that precious animal world first. Just driving and choosing the cars we drive brings death and destruction. While not yet a "Jain" your inclusion of the example of the Nazi Death Camps and the local populace's way of dealing with it brings an analogy to mind of how we perceive our complicity in modern fossil-fuel driven technology. "They" (the WW II) populace living around the Death camps, like we today, can't help but "know" what we are unleashing; we all sometimes cope by denial but it will do no good. I like the choice of the best example of how God would have us live. Like Jesus, the Indian Holy man sets an example y showing that living God's word (as Jesus did), and not preaching while doing otherwise, brings a unifying response from life and all of Nature.
We all must do better in addressing "cruelty" in our lifestyles and just how it can never be condoned by God, however you worship Him, he is life. Spirit and Nature are One.
Thanks for a great article filled with examples of "How to Live"

My God Linden, I am getting ready to go on a protest for lab animals, Sue is picking me up any moment, but I had to read this, and yes, it was so worthwhile, just to see that there are many more HUMANS with feelings in the right place. I can't thank you enough for this article, I have been much distrought by an accumulation of such sad stories, right around here. It is interesting that I call those that do these terrible things Nazis, as does your friend.
God bless you!!!!!!!!!! Hugs! Jasmin Horst.
