WITH LITTLE FEELING

 

When I first took this photo some twenty-three years ago,
it profoundly moved me. Humankind’s inhumanity to their
own species is horrible enough, but our inhumanity towards
all life should make us seriously question our own morality
as a species. Sadly the answer to that question is very ugly…

THE TEST

 

“Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test…
consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.”
