Establishing the Rights of Animals in Law and Human Consciousness
Comments by Jim Robertson - 29 Sep 2006

Dear Frank and Mary,

Thanks for re-sending this. Here is my honest opinion. There are a lot of great ideas as far as a platform for the animal rights movement here, but I don't feel that this fits the 12-step program model. As I understand it, the first step for a person in a 12-step program is admitting that their behavior is making their own life unmanageable. Most meat eaters don't feel this way about their complacency in animal exploitation. Many will go to their graves defending their consumption of non-human animals. Rather than modeling this after the 12-step programs designed to curb addictions, maybe this should be considered a Twelve Point Platform for Animal Rights. Just my 2 cents.

Also, some of the language of these points could be a little more clear. If you would like me to go over this point by point and help make this more concise, let me know. I'd be glad to help out.

Jim
