The emphasis we put on the central, major
role of freedom, could lead to the impression that we
think slaughtering the animal for consumption-purposes
is not as bad as taking away its freedom during the time
it grows up.
If you assume that you are
allowed to eat animals, this does not yet entitle you
to curtail its freedom during the animal's life to an
Species versus individual
We have to work hard on the Ecological Main Structures
throughout countries, in order to create, for animals,
their own territories where they can find rest and liberty.
Put into a schedule: according to the schedule
below, genetic manipulation of plants can be allowed provided
that the consequences of such handling are fully known.
Is hunting for pleasure a natural pastime?
Hunting animals for the sheer pleasure of the "sport", is unnatural since in nature it is virtually unheard of that one creature would kill an other living being just for "fun". Amongst wildlife killing as good as always takes place within the so called food cycle. In that sense the hunting-instinct of the "hunter-sportsman" is both unnatural and hard-hearted.
When less hunting would take place in our country, as a result more animals would eventually dare to show themselves - from a distance - to people more often.
Make the hunter "shoot" with a camera: that is equally sportsmanlike and exciting and truly a manner of honouring and respecting freedom!
