Establishing the Rights of Animals in Law and Human Consciousness

Comments by David Cantor - 6 Jun 2006

Dear Friends,

Two weeks have passed since I had the privilege of meeting with you at the State Museum in Albany for lunch and our discussion of Health, Conservation, Peace and a Humane Future: The Role of Government & Education. Thank you, again, for taking part and for your interesting contributions to the discussion.

I wanted to take a moment to ask if you might have further thoughts or questions about any of the matters discussed on May 23rd and whether you find any of the information useful.

I will not share your replies without your express permission. If there appears to be interest, I'll put comments and questions together and share them with the group along with my replies if appropriate.

Please also feel welcome to request Responsible Policies for Animals literature or other information that might be of mutual interest but might not be included in RPA's materials or at .

As unfortunate developments regarding Iraq, global climate change, the worldwide scramble for oil and fresh water, and other matters indicate, past and present approaches to human problems cannot solve the big ones old solutions created. Rather than live demoralized or paralyzed with anxiety while circumstances worsen and suffering proliferates, I think we can take informed and creative action to undo predicaments we've gotten ourselves into.

Attending to human-nonhuman animal boundaries and the benefits of animal rights has the greatest potential, I think, because violations of those boundaries underlies all of the major problems. Addressing problems helter-skelter as in the past, always pitting one human interest against another and letting winners take all, will let down all of us and future generations.

RPA focuses on Cornell University's "animal science" program and "animal science" at the other states' land-grant universities because keeping such large & prestigious institutions in service to the flesh, milk & egg industries at this late date is possibly the single worst educational and governmental travesty in our species' history. Other efforts are also important, but if you wish to learn more about RPA's 10,000 Years Is Enough campaign, just go to , and ask me any questions you may have.

Meanwhile, all best wishes,

David Cantor
