Ric O' Barry's dolphin project initial and well known logo that includes:

- chains,

Can Moral ‘Discrimination’ Be Non-Speciesist?

In response to some criticisms I raised about his paper “What is Speciesism?”, Oscar Horta has graciously replied with some Clarifications to it. To extend that discussion, I am offering this follow-up reply, which will neither address all of Horta’s points, nor do so in the sequence he presents them. In addition, not all of my comments will pertain directly to something he has written, since I cite the views of Mary Midgley, Peter Singer, Tom Regan, Steve Sapontzis, Gary…

Can you capture a rainbow and confine it to a bottle?

Why then


do we think that anything beautiful is ours for the taking.

Why then


do we snatch them out of the skies to imprison them in a fishbowl.

They are created with heavenly wings, to fly, and fly, and


Soar through the forever vastness of the blue.

A cage compared to

the sky, is a fishbowl, that makes their wild eyes,…

More Thoughts on “Humane Meat” by James McWilliams

"The outrage generated by exposes of factory farming have led to a number of responses, but by far the most popular has been the rise of progressive systems of animal production designed to be more humane. Free-range pork and chicken, cage-free eggs, and grass-fed beef are prime examples of consumer options that have become mainstream alternatives to factory farmed meat. Within these arrangements, farm animals enjoy greater freedom to move about, socialize, eat from the land, interact with…

The Towering Interminable ~ Roger Yates

It is that time of year again... 


North Americans are not going to let us forget "9/11", that's for sure. I have just experienced another day in Europe where "9/11" was a major news item and the subject of TV documentaries. We hear, again, that all the names have been read out in New York and this is supposed to be big news for us. After all, these were white, middle-class, deaths, and these are the ones that count, it is implied.

When Animal Welfare Reforms Are Ideal ~ Roger Yates

Some people, such as David Sztybel and representatives of the National Animal Interest Alliance, argue that there are several versions on animal welfarism. In this blog, I tend to talk about two types, which I have called traditional (or conventional or orthodox)…

I Am Animal ~ Tim Gier

In the eyes of the animal, looking back at me, I see the stark vitality, the raw reality. Confronted with this immediacy of innocence, this essence of being, I recoil, and frightened by the reflection of my own insignificance, I strike out against her, struggling to save my self through separation and subjugation.


I am lost,…
