    yeah, but we didn't steralize people simply due to their political views.

    It's doubtful that derailing a thread with ridiculous epithets NAZIs is against the rules.

    Do not expect a better treatment for animals since:

    1. animal food is basic food for our race.
    2. and 2-3 days we reach 7 miliard of population
    3. many animals are becoming a race to extinction

    Instead of thinking if animals should have rights or not, we should think how to treat them for our own final benefit which is eating.

    Human race is expanding and animal race (the ones we eat) is about to disappear.

    I would never treat an animal like some people do. But that have to do with my behaviour and kind of character.
    I'm very sensitive to the way some animals are killed but when i am in a restorante and my plate is coming, all i care on those moments is the smell and the taste.

    That's what we eat daily. Come a time when it does not impress anymore.


    The behaviour with animals will never change, i see it too hard.
    At 1st ages of our race animals were consider like the tool to survive. We are at 2011 AD and animals have still the same status.

    We can't give anything special to an animal. What is needed for them, they got from "mother nature".

    The whale will always eat the fish
    The eagle will always eat the snake and rabbit
    The human will always eat the animal ------ these are the rules of nature

    nor did nazi.

    I mostly believe that it was due to their belief about cleaning and mantaining arian race.

    Yep, Nazi's sterilised for many reasons, but never political views: Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Exactly. If Nazi's didn't like people's political views, they simply executed them!

    We already grant the not so smart animal known as Homo Sapiens personhood, so I do not see how all that much harm could come from letting a few of the smart animals into the club.

    And yet, compare the number of people who support the death penalty with the number of people who would support sterilizing certain types of criminals. For some reason, execution is much more socially acceptable.
