A Must Read with understanding
on January 18, 2011
The Death of a Culture: Understanding the War between Animal Rights and Animal Welfare is a must read book. This is the first book that actually delves into the motivation behind the relentless movement to force people to rescind all contact with and use of animals. Perhaps it is the special background of the author, and his personal interests in animals that has allowed him to get the clarity needed for this perception. Whatever it is, the motivation for the animal rights activists,their degree of violence, their willingness to break laws and even subvert the electoral processes become quite clear to the reader with a background in their history.
The author's three areas of expertise;1. police work, 2. professional religous involvement, and, 3. Years of expertise in animal husbandry through breeding German Shepherd dogs, come together to reveal background motivations for this movement today. The information presented bares the result of large numbers of several generations with no clear moral education and lack of ethical training. This guideless segment of society then seeks a reason for their existence, turning to causes like animal rights and extreme environmentalism as a salvation of sorts. Both the animal rights movement organizations and environmental activist organizations have been very high on the FBI domestic terrorist list for many years.
What else but personal salvation could motivate the type of crimes committed by these people?
And now, through skillful leadership, many humane organizations have been receiving millions of tax-free dollars that are being used to influence legislation and to elect legislators to pass laws favoring these organizational goals.Little or none of these millions goes to animals, but is funnelled into politics.
This book should be read with the ability to get the thought, because, under the list of the author's expertise, grammer and English are not listed. I suspect that his patience is waning, too, as it is apparent that no proofreader was employed. Let us hope that subsequent editions of this extremely important book are grammatically corrected for those readers who are victims of a failing educational system. Or, maybe, this book was written in their mode of reading for their better understanding.
All should read and understand it. This is a very important work. Thanks to the author for this work.
