Dachshund, Puppy, Young Animal
In this gorgeous world, creatures deserve respect as much as people. It’s our world, but it is their world too. So, this world belongs to all creatures living on it. Yet, many are against this notion, because they believe that animals do not have a soul.
Can we have all of the rights, just because we are at the peak of the food chain? Does that give humans the right to remove animal privileges?
A great deal of people still do not get it, like a child who never learns. And they surely deserve respect, so that they could live their lives free from suffering, abuse, and mistreatment. A life is a life, and it ought to be valued. Animals cannot speak for themselves and for that reason we must be their voice and care for them.
So, protecting them is something you and I should be proud of. As individuals, it’s our responsibility. All creatures have the right to be free of persecution, cruelty, captivity, manipulation, and abuse by individuals. When we respect the well-being of animals, we restore balance in organic preservation.
Animals Deserve Respect
“Each and every animal on earth has as much right to be here and have respect, and love, as me and you.” – Unknown
Yet, too many think that animals are on this world for us to exploit, dominate, use and rule over them. A lot of us think that we are above it all, but we have so much to learn. However, there are also people who do believe animals deserve respect as much as people.
So, I’m one of those people who firmly believe animals should have a better place in our planet. They are sentient beings. We should protect them the same way we care for a disabled child. Both of them don’t have the identical conscious principles that we do. But they still need to be loved, cared for, protected and respected.
Just because animals cannot tell us how they feel, it does not necessarily mean that they’ve no rights. One day our sun will expand, and which is going to be the end of us. Yet, we can’t get away from a fact. It is we people who are defining which criteria to put on value.
In my view, I believe that creatures hold a special place in our world and a number of them, especially our pets, become family members. They don’t have a voice to speak up for themselves, so they deserve respect and to be saved. And I believe that we, as people should do that for them.
Needless to say, I don’t believe that animals need to rule human culture. But does it give us the right to be unkind, kill, abuse, starve, torture or slaughter other living animals? It’s illegal to kill another person, but somehow, it’s okay to hurt, mistreat or kill animals. Most of us are blind to the reality.
Animals and the Arrogant Species
“Animals are the actual sufferers on this earth. They do not declare war, they don’t have weapons, and they don’t want to destroy humans, or impose religion. – The Author SVB
In fact, we are an arrogant species, entitling ourselves to be superior to all other species and lowering any other classes. Most men and women claim that animals don’t have feelings or have a soul. They believe them to be worthless, and only here to provide food and needs for us, human beings.
Since I am a child, I rebelled and wondered why guy believes he is at the peak of the food chain. We’re not faster, stronger or even brighter than lots of animals. Needless to say, we could reason and have a great deal of intelligence at our disposal. But then again we are also the only arrogant species that have so little respect and is bent on murdering the very planet that sustains our lives. So, to me, this sort of intellect looks more like stupidity.
Animals Do Have Feelings
Despite all the things that happen in our world, our lack of consideration and consciousness in this matter indicates that we are not as evolved as we ought to be. It starts by giving equal attention towards animals as well as towards our fellow men. Some people are now strating to wake up to these facts, but we still have a ways to go.
So, all animals deserve respect as they can suffer and feel pain in the exact same way and to the exact same level that you and I do. They could feel happiness, pain, fear, pleasure, care, sadness, loneliness, and motherly love. They know more than what we give them credit for.
Animals are also living creatures. Why do people feel they are better is beyond me. Humanity would be nowhere if animals did not exist in this world. The reality is it’s just as bad killing a creature as it is to kill an individual, it is murder. Killing one insect by accident is OK, but a herd of cows or a pride of lions is not perfect. Often, I believe people are equal, if not lower, than other creatures.
The Most Disrespectful of Animals
We have the capability to think, visualize and invent things, and it is what caused humans to flourish in the first location. It is such an incredible ability. And yes, we human beings have imaginations, but we also have self-awareness. So, we have the skill to reflect on our presence. Yet we ought to have more integrity and compassion.
Indeed, we are the most sophisticated of all animals in this world, yet the most disrespectful. We can speak various languages, cook meals, create things, drive a car or fly a plane, as well as debate over all kinds of situations. Yet, I’m asking you:”If we’re more intelligent and have a greater capacity for thought, why are we acting with such disrespect towards this world and the animals living on it?”
Therefore, the world would be much better off with no silly ways of thinking we are the best thing on Earth. And yet we act like idiots and treat animals as if they were things! Regardless of what you might say, people are animals on the interior. We hunt, fight, multiply, group, live, exactly like any other creature and sometimes even, in a worse way.
Animals Aren’t Things
But through our experiences, we know animals undergo pain and suffering. Scientifically, we realize more and more that many exhibit intelligent behaviors. It’s unacceptable to think of another person as being because of the color of the skin or sex. So it is unfair to treat animals disrespectfully. Instead, they deserve respect as much as you and I, or even more.
On this beautiful planet, we’re the leading species. Therefore, we have a moral obligation to protect the interests of the other life on this earth. And it begins with accepting them as equals. Animals are not ours to exploit; they aren’t toys or things. They are living creatures, just like you and I. For me, it is not if animals can think or talk, but more about”Many are suffering.”
“I hope that one day the time will come when men will look upon the murder and harm of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.” – A desire of Leonardo da Vinci.
A Last Word on Animals
Did you have watch how factory farms or slaughterhouses did their actions? Imagine if it had glass walls? Could you still be able to look in their eyes and say you cannot see the pain they are enduring?
I worked as a helper for a vet. And at times, I needed to look in their eyes before putting them down. They have feelings. So I chose to stop and find a better path to help them!
Consequently, I just think animals deserve an opportunity to live a healthy and happy life. People aren’t better because they use tools or are bright. And it is just intolerable to exploit innocent creatures, sometimes in very cruel ways. They can feel and sometime think like us. Let us start now.
