Reverence for the Animal Kingdom

May 11, 1986

Researchers who torture and exploit innocent and loving creatures are operating on the arrogant assumption that human beings, because of their superior intelligence, have the right to sacrifice every other form of life on earth.

Has the human race really done so well for itself? Have we really made this world a better place? Who created the Spanish Inquisition? Slavery? Terrorism?

I say we should revere and appreciate the peaceful and affectionate nature of the animal kingdom.

I wish Renee Neaseg (Commentary, May 4) would consider the possibility that our intelligence just might be our own worst enemy rather than, as she believes, a license to kill.
