Noone ever asks why? ~ Cameron Blewett

Sitting back watching TV tonight Channel 10 was doing a little bit of heavy promotion for their 2011 News and Current Affairs line up. George Negus came on to give us a little promo of what he will be doing regarding the new lineup.

The thing that got me interested in what he was saying was one simple statement that he made. Now the quote isn’t exactly verbatim, though the general gist of it should be ok. He said something along the lines of He asks the 1 question that other reporters…

Forums, Frustrations and Friends ~ Tim Gier

I ventured into another forum not that long ago to meet and talk with others about veganism and animal rights.  My involvement didn’t last all that long.  Maybe I ought to just accept that forums and… Continue

Abolition of Animal Exploitation: The Journey Will Not Begin While We Are Walking Backwards ~ Gary L. Francione

In The Longest Journey Begins with a Single Step: Promoting Animal Rights by Promoting Reform (, Peter Singer and PETA's Bruce Friedrich claim that an "odd" controversy has developed in "recent years" about whether animal advocates ought to pursue animal welfare as a means to achieve animal rights. This controversy is…

This essay argues that the benefits of changing the legal status of animals from their current position as items of property have been exaggerated. This assertion is based on the arguments that abolishing the property status of animals is not a sufficient guarantee that they will cease to be exploited and that, whilst the abolition of animals’ property status is a necessary step towards the fulfilment of an animal rights agenda, it…

Defending Animal Rights ~ Professor Robert Garner

IN the two decades after the second world war, animal welfare was largely absent from public discourse. Even the burgeoning environmental movement in the 1970s, in so far as it touched upon animals at

A Vegan World in 8 Years ~ Tim Gier

Did you know that the world’s current population of human beings is about 6.7 Billion?

That’s a lot of people!

If only 1% of them are vegan, that means that there are 67 Million vegans walking the earth right now. That’s a lot of people too!

So here’s the deal. Every vegan has one year to help one other person become…

Animal Welfare and the Moral Value of Nonhuman Animals ~ Gary. L. Francione


The animal welfare position, which represents the prevailing paradigm for thinking about our moral and legal obligations to nonhuman animals, maintains that animal life has a lesser value than human life and, therefore, it is morally acceptable to use animals as human resources as long as we treat them ‘humanely’ and do not inflict ‘unnecessary’ suffering on them.…

It's Better to Kill Others ~ Tim Gier

It’s better to kill others.
