Sometimes I think that a politician is someone who figures out which way the crowd is running and then runs along in front. I think that reforms that start from the top and try to impose change at the bottom never work. The change has to start at the bottom with more and more people being aware of animal rights and wanting change to occur. Once that happens the laws will come naturally and they will have the strength of public opinion behind them.
i love the lines you come up with Sirdle like the bolded one above - well put!!!
I strongly agree with the rest of what you said that I quoted.
As far as requiring full disclosure on ingredients and components found in the food and their health effects, I think this is important but I also think the suffering needs to be fully disclosed as well. Otherwise, the message is once again "WHo cares about the animals - the only thing that matters is human health." Well, that is not the ONLY thing that matters. Even if meat could be rendered healthy, it would still be unacceptable and unethical to kill animals for food when you can live just as healthy of a lifestyle that did not cost animals their innocent lives!!!
