I think Mr. Marr is a very good speaker. He did not put all the blame on any one person or group of people; instead, he put a little bit of blame on everyone. I hadnít known anything about tigers really, so what he had to say was very interesting and new to me. The only issue I had with the presentation was that there wasnít any time for questions (which I guess wasnít a good idea considering the other class didnít take advantage of their Q&A time). I liked how there was a wide array of topics covered; not just saving tigers, but humanitarian ideas such as helping Indians and other primitive societies how to not be dependent on wood for fuel.
After debriefing the day following the presentation, I had a morbid
epiphany; no matter what people do there will always be suffering, human
or animal. There is no political party with all the answers. If people
exist, animals will die. My dad works at the Columbus zoo so I was raised
to love animals. That being said, I still hold people above animals. Why?
Perhaps human nature. But perhaps all conservatism does is keep wildlife
around longer rather than forever. I think all animals, including humans
(because thatís what we are, animals), are all doomed. Morbid, I know.
