"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
"I do not underestimate the ability of fanatical groups of terrorists to kill and destroy, but they do not threaten the life of the nation. Whether we would survive Hitler hung in the balance, but there is no doubt that we shall survive al-Qa'ida." -- Lord Hoffmann
Animals do have rights. They have the right to be shot in an efficient and dignified manner, they have the right to pick up the trail of the one's that bleed out from a less than perfect shot, they have the right to a proper marinade and appropriate side items, and they have the right to turn on those hippy idiots that try to interject themselves into the situation on their behalf(probably the best irony ever!).
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Act that your principle of action might safely be made a law for the whole world.
- Immanuel Kant
Postulating that aliens whose intelligence and material resources in relation to humans was comparable to humans' in relation to animals came and decided to make use of our species in the same ways we have made use of animals, our only strong objection against their appropriation of us is that we have a will to live.
