“Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”
~ Albert Schweitzer

Earthlings is the most powerful documentary I’ve yet seen. It gets straight to the heart of the matter, our generally accepted practice of exploiting Earth’s animals for our one species. Consider for a moment their lives, their liberty or pursuit of their happiness, whatever that may be. These inalienable rights, supposedly granted to us by God, are not meant for man alone. Never mind how many lives we have taken in our recent history (subsistence hunting aside), we have secured them a place in our lives for cheap, convenient, abundant food and/or products. We have turned living beings into widgets.
It is no less than human kind’s assault of the earth. Consider acceptance. If we can do it so can you.
Greens. For good. For life.
