JUL 06: BRAINY MOHAN - THESE TWO THINKERS ARE MORE TOPICAL TODAY THAN EVER!
«CRUELTY TO ANIMALS IS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT VICES OF A LOW AND IGNOBLE PEOPLE!
WHEREVER ONE NOTICES THEM, THEY CONSTITUTE A SIGN OF IGNORANCE AND BRUTALITY WHICH CONNOT BE PAINTED OVER EVEN BY ALL THE EVIDENCE OF WEALTH AND LUXURY!»
ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT - German naturalist (1769 - 1859).
He was the FIRST PERSON who described the phenomenon and cause of human-induced CLIMAT CHANGE in 1800 and again in 1831!
Based on observations he generated during his travels across South America!
Keep this passionate PLEA for ANIMALS always in your mind:
«THE ASSUMPTION THAT ANIMALS ARE WITHOUT RIGHTS AND THE ILLUSION THAT OUR TREATMENT OF THEM HAS NO MORAL SIGNIFICANCE IS A POSITIVELY OUTRAGEOUS EXAMPLE OF WESTERN CRUDITY AND BARBARITY!
UNIVERSAL COMPASSION IS THE ONLY GUARANTEE OF MORALITY!»
ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER - German philosopher - 1788 to 1860.
Best known for his 1818 work «THE WORLD AS WILL AND REPRESENTATION».
