After seeing Wayne Pacelle on the Bill Maher HBO Real Time show this past week, May 2016, I decided to read the reviews of this latest book. In Maher's interview, Pacelle was well spoken and sensible... relatively speaking, one of the lone voices against a likely societal misconception of the entire animal-industrial complex. So, I was a little surprised to see two clearly single-star ratings. In reading them, I got a bit suspicious about the motivations of the reviewers due to the fact that they both threw out some serious innuendo. The first one-star review by "Ted" at least started off sounding unbiased, kudos, but ended up throwing in other radical statements that are likely meant to discount the author and the overall vision of a better world. The second one-star review was simply a cut/paste of what turns out to be a Washington Lobby against HSUS run by Rick Bearman.
This was what my simple Google search turned up, from San Diego News Channel 8...
According to the CEO of HSUS, Wayne Pacelle, the organization is being attacked in part because of a decade long campaign by Washington lobbyist Richard Berman. Berman, according to Pacelle, represents restaurants, the meat industry and other groups against animal welfare organizations.
“This is a front group funded by animal abuse organizations attacking us for ten-years. Badge of honor, we're doing our job just right,” said Pacelle.
CBS News 8 reached out to the Center for Organizational research and education. A spokesman said its executive director is Rick Berman and said the organization stands behind their anti-humane society campaign.
They accuse the HSUS of deceptive advertising and using donor money to push a radical political agenda.
So ... all that said, based on the original HBO interview and the mud slinging of the two one-star reviews, I WILL indeed be buying and reading this book. Stay tuned....
Make a point of buying this book.
The book is written and formatted in an easy reading style with headings and captions. Good to hear some good news for a change. Now let's go for more!
But great strides are being made that are reducing the suffering of animals while creating new, very successful business opportunities that. Wayne Pacelle's book is a look into how the cruelty economy is changing to the humane economy.
