I’m sure that someone can direct me to the source of the quote to the effect that the enlightenment of a society can be judged by the way it treats its animals, but in the meantime this case shows just how far the human soul in the society that we live in (I won’t honor it by referring to it as “our” society) has descended.
People who engage in such wanton cruelty towards animals have become so detached from their proper place in the natural order that they there is no hope for them. They are examples of how the over-breeding of the human species has occurred to such an extent that extreme aberrations are now the new “normal.”
Do you remember when you could recall the number of mass or serial killers of human beings on two hands? Today the phenomenon is so common that it hardly rates our interest.
Something must be done to stem the growing population of desensitized humans who commit such merciless and barbaric acts against animals. To put it succinctly, they should be removed from society — by being executed. If we don’t take care of the problem now, it won’t be long before they turn on their own kind.
(Oh, wait a minute. They’re doing it already.)
