Re: [News] Abuse of Intellectual Monopolies Does Not Work for Slaughterhouse

Verily I say unto thee, that Chris Ahlstrom spake thusly:

Had you bothered to find out exactly /who/ these animal rights activists
are in this case, and exactly what evidence they've been recording, then
you'd know that Roy's headline is literally deadly accurate:


Perhaps you should consider /familiarising/ yourself with rights issues,
rather than automatically defending every debase aspect of society. Well
if you spent less time stalking people, you might actually have the time
to do that.

Rodeos, bullfighting, fox hunting ... it all amounts to the same thing -
needless and heartless cruelty to animals, for our entertainment/profit.

For someone to engage in these vicious acts of cruelty at /all/, is bad
enough, but to then assert /copyright/ on this cruelty is /beyond/ sick.

It's worse than torturing and killing animals in the name of science. At
least /that/ is productive, assuming one considers "testing cosmetics" a
"productive" excuse to torture and kill helpless animals:
