### [[Animals Lives Matter]] #Ethics #Values #Animals #Humanity Yes, seeing animals being killed could be equally and maybe more heartbreaking than seeing humans being killed, let me explain why .. and it might sound lame and cliche, but it's true, Animals do not have the logic to understand human conspiracy. They have no means of protection, and they have no official institutions to support them. You can teach your kid not to take food from strangers, but animals will always trust humans, yet, we abuse this trust. Killing animals isn't just about them, it's also about the "human beast" killing them for the sole reason that they exist. A person who can kill a dog is a person who can kill a human. People who kill dogs this way are definitely fucked up in some way, and the society should be protected from them. To the people saying: do something about humans dying before you worry about dogs. I say: what have YOU done to those humans? Or do you just want to sound like a smart ass? Bigger problems do not negate or eliminate the need to solve arguably smaller problems. There is nothing wrong with banning smoking while drugs are still being smuggled. Nothing wrong with giving speed tickets when while mafias are still robbing everyone. And nothing wrong with punishing people who kill dogs inhumanely while we still deal with terrorists and whatever. A problem is a problem, and if one thing is simpler to tackle, doesn't mean the other issues are of less importance or significance. > [!seealso] Related Thoughts > > Related thoughts will appear here when available.
