By definition an earthling is an inhabitant of the earth. No matter the species, we are all earthlings. It is humans who have created speciesism. Much like racism, speciesism is the discrimination against non human animals.
The movie Earthlings is an eye opening documentary on how humans exploit animals. It is broken down into five categories: Pets, Food, Clothing, Entertainment and Science. This disheartening and disturbing film will allow you to see just how brutal humans can be and it hopes for you to "make the connection." I urge you to watch the entire film here and allow it to open your heart and mind to making better decisions. No animal, species or race deserves this kind of treatment.
How do you want to be remembered? The saying "We reap just what we sow" carries a strong meaning. Of course animals fear and feel pain. We should love all animals as we love the innocent and as the strong love the vulnerable. It takes nothing away from humans to be kind to all.
"Ignorance is the speciesist first line of defense. Yet it is easily breached by anyone with the time and determination to find out the truth. Ignorance has prevailed so long, only because people do not want to find out the truth."
