La Guerra delle Polpette
Alternativa pratica al veganismo globale Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Originale pubblicato il 17 maggio 2019 con il titolo The War on Hamburgers: A Practical Alternative to World Veganism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Da quando è stata presentata l’ultima versione del New Deal Verde, i conservatori si sono buttati nella lotta contro l’inesistente cattivo che starebbe…
The War on Hamburgers: A Practical Alternative to World Veganism
Since the introduction of the newest incarnation of the Green New Deal, conservatives have been hard at work battling the non-existent boogyman supposedly trying to ban hamburgers. Now, of course, such claims are completely absurd and have no basis in the actual reality of the Deal itself, but that hasn’t stopped the idea from spreading…
Perché non Togliere gli Animali dai Circhi?
[Di Chad Nelson. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 2 maggio 2017 con il titolo What’s Wrong with Abolishing Circus Animal Shows? Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] A prima vista il disegno di legge 1759 approvato dalla camera (“Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act”) sembra una grossa vittoria per gli animali….
How Do We Best Improve the Lives of Animals?
As a relative newcomer to the tradition of anarchist activism in the field of human-animal relationships, I found C4SS Fellow Chad Nelson’s “What’s Wrong with Abolishing Circus Animal Shows?” to be a fascinating read. But my concern for animals is currently rooted in their welfare rather than their ostensible oppression or rights as free beings.
What’s Wrong with Abolishing Circus Animal Shows?
At first glance, H.R. 1759 — the “Traveling Exotic Animal and Public Safety Protection Act (TEAPSPA)” — seems like a big victory for animals. TEAPSPA actually seeks to abolish an entire cross-section of animal exploitation. One that is as old as mankind: circus animals. Many parts of the world are already aware that circus animals endure great suffering…
L’Economia Crudele
[Di Chad Nelson. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 19 aprile 2016 con il titolo The Inhumane Economy. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] In un recente commento (Karma tastes delicious in America’s new, humane economy, Washington Post, 15 aprile 2016), Kathleen Parker plaude a quella che lei considera “una rivoluzione… nel regno sempre…
Angela Davis Defends Animals, Others Oppressed
Writing at RenewAmerica, Cliff Kincaid takes Angela Davis to task for “going vegan” (“Black Power icon goes vegan to save animals,” September 21, 2016). Rather than actually consider the extreme torture and slaughter of animals perpetrated by humans, Kincaid seems wedded to the standard tactics of other animal oppressors — basing his attack solely on…
The Inhumane Economy
In a recent op-ed (Karma tastes delicious in America’s new, humane economy, Washington Post, April 15, 2016), Kathleen Parker lauds what she sees as “a revolution…in the ever-more-dignified animal kingdom.” For Parker, evidence of the revolution is clear: From SeaWorld’s ban on orca breeding, to Armani’s discontinuation of fur-use in products, to Walmart’s promise of…
Animals Aren’t Property: Circus Edition
Usually, it’s upsetting to see a person’s livelihood attacked and destroyed by government bureaucrats. In the case of Thomas Chipperfield, it’s not so bad. Chipperfield is one in a long line of family members extending back many generations who’s made his living in the circus. The Chipperfield family takes their show on the road across…
