Unthinkable Today, Obvious Tomorrow: The Moral Case for the Abolition of Cruelty to Animals

It’s the moral tests that are remembered, the ones inviting us to look beyond self-interested advantage, to square how we act with what we know, to widen the circle of sympathy and respect, or simply to do right for its own sake. This is a challenge for our age. Far from being some new or radical issue, it is older than ancient, differing only in opportunities, uniquely ours, to leave behind wretched customs and rid the world of needless miseries. More ways of life that don’t involve so much death. More pursuits of happiness that don’t cause so much pain. Civilization a milestone or two further along, with less hypocrisy, more integrity, less hidden violence, and more true peace. Among the gifts we can offer posterity, they don’t come much better than that. — Matthew Scully

This is not an easy read, but i think everyone should read it.

Its not a short read, but most things worthwhile are not simple.

Be a better human, strive to understand the consequences of choice.
