It’s no mystery that our Tory masters have reduced animals to things incapable of feeling pain or thinking thoughts in order to exploit nature – and profit from it – as much as they possibly can. Killing beasts and people is always about pennies, albeit millions and millions of pennies – but pennies nonetheless. Why wouldn’t they do this to animals? If you can be so cruel to a defenceless animal you can do the same to a child.
Our destruction, violence, and cruelty in the world we live should shock us and make us anxious. Why would we never consider it on another world? Is it is the case that the grass is always purpler the other side?
The Liberties initiative – or “libertiesdublin.ie” – says on its website that “Over 23,000 residents live within the 1km square area” of the Liberties, but ignores the harsh realities of child poverty, food poverty, drug addiction, and suicide among other things, and it does this because it is a business initiative.
