Apathy an enemy of our society

I would like to apologize if any veterans or their families were offended by the presence of a horse at the Remembrance Day ceremony

I would like to apologize if any veterans or their families were offended by the presence of a horse at the Remembrance Day ceremony. Please note the blanket read, “We fought your wars. Will you fight ours?” More than 10 million horses died at war. In thanks, Canada is brutally slaughtering up to 100,000 a year for human consumption overseas. Bill C-322 seeks to end horse slaughter in Canada.

To the woman who yelled that the ceremony was for people, I am well aware of the horrors of war and the sacrifices soldiers made. Why do you think caring about animals negates caring about people?

To those who “don’t get involved in these things,” do you know you owe the quality of life you have entirely to people before you who did get involved? It was activists who smuggled video out of death camps that ultimately ended the Second World War. Activists abolished slavery and gave women the right to vote.

Human nature hasn’t changed since Nazi Germany. Evil still exists. The only difference is those who oppose it won’t be shot on sight. German citizens didn’t have a choice. You do. Yet today “apathists” are our biggest threat, enabling GMOs, “smart” grids, nuclear disasters, poverty, disease, hunger, abuse of animals and rape of the environment. If not for apathists, life would be heaven on earth for everyone.

Being apathetic is a great way to ensure another holocaust, or worse. Either get involved or when the next species goes extinct, or an epidemic of child brain cancer hits, congratulate yourself.

Ignoring violence, towards animals or people, harms everyone. To find out more about horse slaughter, see defendhorsescanada.org.
