The fact that we don’t consider animals a valid form of life hence expose them to all kinds of torture, cruelty, slaughter them for meat , fur, leather is the best example of our cruelty. When I talk to someone about ending animal cruelty, they say “first end poverty, then animals”. My question is WHY do they come second? They are the ones who provide for us indirectly for which we are able to eat, wear good clothes, wear expensive shoes then why do they come last and we come first? Just because they cannot talk , we are superior? Just because they have four legs , they are inferior? I sometimes fail to fathom WHY is it that Th.e world is so cruel that they do not even spare innocent living beings? Why are we so selfish?
