Pig is a name given to a certain animal. A negative resonance in the human pyche. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AU7_Ar9C_iI
Can you be sure why this pig was doing the stuff it did? All answers will be seen as sanctimonious unless perceived as otherwise.
All animals and insects have a mind. To which extent in comparison to the human mind do they perceive? Is it okay if they fall below the human standard that they can be 'murdered' without due term applied, only slaughtered'. We as humans have no idea how animals think, feel in this reality.
It seems in slaughter the only prerequisite is the exsanguination of the slaughtered, murdered creatures in all religions.. Or beasts as the bible says.
In your ability to empathise maybes your next door neighbour may aswell be a dragonfly.
Maybes your empathy is misplaced or misdirected.?
Maybes the perception of the fulllness of the world will never be attained until humans can empathise and sympathise with other creatures.
My 5 year old nephew beat me at a card game. I'm 46. I will try to nuture his intelligence. Not like the school suppression regime that will control and destroy him like it did me.
Control seems to be all around.
Like I said Pig is not a nice name to give to people but pig is a sentient creature under our control. We decide what happens to pig!
Democracy decides what happens to people..
Pig is what you decide what pig is.
