we are monsters....

the nasty under the bed, or in the closet, or looking in the window. That is just being anthropocentric tho. "cos we should look at the bigger picture.

That photo of the orangutan is so heartbreaking, poignant, but MORE.... hugely instructive.

It shows the superiority of the man from the jungle , over the horror and destruction , and inferiority, of us. Very sad.. :sad


No way can we manage climate change. Not a hope in hell. Nope.

Climate change will eventually manage Humans tho..

I don't get how there is a context that makes that highly disturbing picture okay.

yeah I don't either.
It seems Aussie does tho. maybe ?? there is a reason ?? for these people to do this?? other than a selfie with a dying baby dolphin..??

I doubt that Aussie.

Like I said, the context was written in letters... along with the photo. You know/ those symbols that add up to words.?

What else do you need to know..?

….. the whole crowd were environmentalist/conservationists having a day out the beach, who RESCUED this baby dolphin.? FUCK OFF.

What gets me is the kids in there.

Well, it does and it doesn't i suppose.

I remember the first time i saw a pig shot. All the kids were sitting on the fences around the slaughter stall in the sty and one pig was herded away from the others (mind you, only railing seperated them) into a stall two down where Denis was waiting with his gun. All the pigs were screaming. All the kids were laughing.

He missed the first shot. Got it through the snout. I ran away at that point ... behind the big shed where i vomited.

When i came back, they were hoisting the dead pig up to the rafters by it's back leg to leave overnight to catch the blood.

Only railings separated them. The pigs were still screaming.

Why weren't those children taught to empathise?

My children would never have done that. I would never have done that.

how? the parents obviously have no empathy, how are they supposed to teach the kids? The kids copy the parents behaviour

so.. we are agreed. Most adults are actually unthinking monsters. I don't think economic levels pertain either. Just a different twist.

And I'm serious. As a race adults are so ignorant they do harm without even being aware of it.

Didn't really think i needed to, Bananaman.

Still though, i got into a bit of an exchange at one of my son's class meetings in which we were discussing bullying. I put forward that the best antidote to bullyintg is empathy, from all directions.

I was pulled up by some of the parents and the teacher for suggesting that children under 12 had the capacity for empathy. I was horrified. You fucking teach it. Along with courtesy and respect for other beings.

I can't remember trying particularly hard to imprint it on either of my children. That's what i question. Is it as much a case of teaching how to? Or is it conditioning not to?

And it is, of course, a different answer for everybody.

what a ridiculous comment. My oldest was four when he first cried because he thought his little brother was hurt............ and it wasn't guilt. He had nothing to do with the hurt
