Tom Regan Explaining His View on Animal Welfare

Professor Tom Regan clearly expresses his concern about the animal welfarist movement. I his view, "to reform absolute injustice is to prolong injustice.” He understands why many animal right advocates celebrate and indeed look for any way to alleviate animal suffering, such as improving the condition in which egg-laying hens live, etc; however, he believes that for animals, it might be counter-productive if terms like "humane" and "cruelty-free" encourage people to exploit animals without any burden in their conscience. His suggestion? To expose victimization and get mad as hell! In fact, he believes that when the public finally reacts strongly and decisively to the atrocities perpetrated daily against non-human animals, it will be the day abolition will start taking place.

Anger is a primal emotion that, if used wisely, can be of great benefit. God's animal advocates should channel their anger into effective activism, which would help not only animals but also ourselves for its therapeutic effects. People need to see and learn why we clearly do not approve with the treatment of God's animals or the devastation of God's Creation as a whole, and that our goal is to seek an end to this.
