Quote of the day

What makes human beings want to exploit, dominate and consume the animal kingdom instead of co-existing peacefully with our furred and feathered friends who share our planet?

In his enlightened book An Unnatural Order, author Jim Mason explores this issue with persuasive, intelligent prose. This quote was so poignant and on point that I felt compelled to share it with you.

"Animals have been regarded as property for way too long. It's high time we took on a more loving and responsible relationship with our kindred beings in the web of life on this beautiful planet. I always think and act as a guardian towards my kindred beings, never as their owner."
