“Human suffering is lamented, animal suffering is ignored”

From the Facebook page of the Austrian philosopher and animal ethicist Helmut F. Kaplan:

“Obscene from an animal perspective *:
Human suffering is lamented, animal suffering is ignored

Animals are deliberately exposed to the conditions of nuclear war to determine how long they will survive and how they will die.

Animals are tied up and shot at with guns to explore the effects of new munitions.

Animals are ruthlessly frightened, expelled, injured and destroyed in the “opening” of nature, in the demolition of buildings, in the construction of roads, in the construction of dams and so on and so on.

Flocks of birds that impede airport operations are ruthlessly massacred.

Gassing and poisoning squads are on the move everywhere and without interruption in order to “exterminate” “vermin” and other “pests” in the most brutal way.

Not to mention from the round-the-clock, routine massacres in experimental laboratories and slaughterhouses around the world”  ( from his book “Animal Rights and Human Rights: One Unit”)

* (His statement came after an article in the German newspaper “Frankfurter Allgemeine” entitled: “The situation in Ukraine: the population is already on the brink”).


“Animals are almost always in the position of being (much) weaker than humans!

By nature, because we are mostly rationally and practically superior to them, ‘by civilization’, because we scientifically optimized and technically perfected exploit and kill them in animal factories and slaughterhouses.

In experimental laboratories, animals are even deliberately humiliated and terrorized.” (Helmut F. Kaplan)

He said everything, actually.
