I especially like your points about 'speciesism'. It is so pernicious, we hardly even notice it. So often, humans think of themselves as at the top of some human-created species hierarchy. This leads to thinking that we at the top have the right (often seen as 'God given') to prevail over and exploit every other species for our own development and well-being. Another perspective would be to acknowledge and respect the interconnectedness of all life on Earth. The universe, including our planet, is a web, not a hierarchical ladder with humans on the top rung. We need to look around at, not down on, our fellow species.


all the links are bad. Now is the time for this movement to go bold, Harambes murder has had a profound effect upon society.
