Horse ‘Meat’

April 19, 2013

When we extend freedom and rights to all living beings, we extend freedom and rights to all living beings. When we extend freedom and rights to only some living beings, we extend them to none.

Horses are becoming a concern because they are ending up in the food supply- because we have created rules that only apply to a few.

When we make exceptions to the rules (we don’t eat cats and dogs except that we do eat cows and pigs) we open the rules up to be excepted. It just takes one person to say ‘well, we eat cows and pigs so why not horses’ for horse flesh to appear on the menu. The only way to prevent what is beloved to you from appearing as an entree is by preventing what is not beloved to you from appearing as an entree. Otherwise you open the rules up to exceptions and when it comes to ourselves and the beings we love, we would never want to be the exception. We want ourselves and the beings we love to be the rule.

Therefore we need to want the rule to apply to all or else it opens it up to the possibility that someday the rule will not apply to ourselves or to the beings we love. If you never want to be the exception, then do not tolerate any living being as the exception. And trust me, you never want to be the exception. (Slavery, genocide, forced labor camps, segregation, racism, etc.)
As a rule rights and freedoms are extended to all or else they can not be guaranteed to be extended to anyone.

This is why I am a Living Rights Activist and Vegan.  The value and protection of all life is the only way to protect the lives of those you love.  You must be the change you wish to see in the world or you will never see it.  You will be a part of the problem.

Be the change.  Not the problem.  Do this for the ones you love for their protection, for their very lives.  Peace.
