SEP 02: SWEET LITTLE TIGERS - ANIMALS NEED AN ADVOCATE LIKE ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER!
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».
