Not so. There were plenty of tastes of compassion scattered about the film, and that is what made it work. When we go from a healthy animal to an insane, wounded creature being devoured alive by its cage-mates, the contrast makes it work. And you can never separate good from bad completely, and I'd say it was non-judgmental, regardless.

I watched the whole thing. And... I dunno. It didn't make me even more excited about being omnivorous. The pet segment was very moving in the sense that it was so close to home. The workers that pet the dogs in their last moments after administering the lethal injection get my "that says a whole lot about life" award.

I originally came at this as a "I know what you are going to say and I don't want to hear it" kind of perspective, but it was shortly after the first hundred animals were killed on camera that I actually started to pay attention. I've been on the fence as far as being a hippie goes my entire life, but I am one of those intellectual wankers that never does anything. Ideologically, I'm a socialist vegetarian christian anarchist romantic artist, but instead of living any of those lives, I mostly just sit in front of my computer and go against everything I believe in whenever it is convenient, or rather, whenever my beliefs are inconvenient and my instincts are harmless. And unfortunately, I still see a bologna sandwich as harmless, even after this movie put a heavy damper on my appetite.

^Yes it wont, but we as humans have a moral obligation to stop the obliteration of animals and no it is natural for animals to do that because they dont know any better but we as humans do and the video is not about bieng vegetarian !! that is just ONE of the things we do there are sooooooo many more things we do.

@Elfen_Lied wtf where the hell did you get the idea it was about bieng vegetarian O_O

EDIT ok let me clarify, bieng vegetarian covers about 5 minutes in this entire video, its mostly towards animal euthanasia, diseases and what not, i.e human doings and not vegetarianism -_-


Was that somewhere in the fine print?

I missed something here. Either your an ass who just ressed this three month old forum to say that, or another post got deleted. If it was you that ressed this to post that, fuck off.

I dont like the inhumane control of animals, but I dont like PETA or hippies either.

some animals are meant to be eaten, exterminated etc... unfortunately the same thing doesn't apply to us humans... "nooo... it's a violation of human rights..." "don't execute him...! even pedophiles are humans too... he deserves a fair trial...!"

:::sigh:::
I didn't want to spend over an hour of my life watching propaganda for the animal rights movement. I might watch it some day when i have nothing to do (i have it bookmarked) but for the most part... it seems like majorly biased propaganda for a left wing movement.
like i said i will watch it, and when i do, i'll edit this post, but don't hold your breath.

Excuse me, but you're the one who sounds biased. You say you haven't watched it, "but for the most part it seems like majorly biased propaganda for a left wing movement."? So where did that information come from? the other people's posts?So animal rights protection is exclusively a left wing hobby? Well, that's a compliment for left wingers and doesn't make the "other wing" look too good. Btw, if you don't want to waste an hour and a half of your life, then don't watch it. But in that case you shouldn't make assumptions as well.


Edit: I think this sounds bitchier, than I meant it. I just don't get the point of your post ;-)
