LIKE EACH LIVING BEING, WE BOTH WANT TO LIVE OUR LIFE!
Hence we need now an uncompromising ADVOCATE for ANIMALS!
An outstanding PERSONALITY like ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER:
«COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS IS INTIMATELY ASSOCIATED WITH GOODNESS OF CHARACTER, AND IT MAY BE CONFIDENTLY ASSERTED THAT HE WHO IS CRUEL TO ANIMALS CANNOT BE A GOOD MAN!»
In his philosophy ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER came to the CONCLUSION that HUMANS and ANIMALS are essentially the same:
BOTH POSSESS THE WILL TO LIVE!
«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».
