As you might know by now, part of my activities involve cattle ranching at my family’s cattle ranch in Texas. I like to fool around with these ‘lil doegies.” Once my dad asked me: “Do you think they can think?’ I said “yes.” Yes, cattle can think and a tiny bit of thinking can lead to the conclusion that one is offended by others’ actions or remarks. I can promise you now, cattle are not offended by talk of loading onto cattle trailers, even if they could ever know this was being said about them at airport loading docks, which they cannot. Knowledge of an offense is a necessary a priori to being offended, isn’t it? And since cows cannot have knowledge of the experience of being offended, they do not have the capacity to be offended…ever.
I wonder if other cattlemen, those who know cattle best, think their cows ever get offended? Offended? I thought that term referred only to humans. If cows can become offended, the only cow behavior I’ve ever seen that could possibly be considered offensive behavior is when you round them up to count them and make sure they’re all there, and their mooing suggests they were expecting to be fed, not counted.
Frankly, I find it very hard to believe there is anything like offenses to cattle, even if they knew they were referred to as not…”precious cargo” by some remote source in a human-made Facebook post, yet here we are.
The Canadian Press in an article entitled “Toronto airport removes ad after activists complain it’s ‘insulting’ to cows” [June 30, 2017] recently reported that a certain Len Goldberg made such a post regarding an ad at a Toronto airport to the effect that “You’re precious cargo, not cattle” which meant to imply a complement to the airplane passengers. And criticism of an airplane service company that is trying its best to serve the public is misguided thinking at the least. The epistemology of cattle says they will never know they could have been “insulted,” period.
The story is yet another example of the psychotic nature of members of the Communist Party’s so-called “animal rights” front group. It is an argument for the moral equivalency of humans with animals. The belief that animals have the same rights as humans is a psychotic delusion and yet represents some of the best work of people who advocate the ideology of Communism!
But how can you see Communism in the belief of this delusional charge? Well, it’s all about rights; women, blacks, homosexuals, cows, rocks, you name it. Trying to accuse an aviation business of anything that invokes victim status immediately sets the victim up ahead of all others. Such is the Communist mindset. Communists seek any imaginable way they can set themselves above others since it is a dictatorship they seek. Notice how being a dictator is the exact opposite of being a victim. Their tactic is that if one can establish victimhood, then one might use that as leverage to establish a dictatorship, a favorite trick of the Communist Party. Even better, advocating any bad publicity that casts a blemish over a free-market enterprise is always a plus, at least in their minds. All Communists are anti-business. If you want a recent example, just look at the mass destruction of that Communist agitation group at the July, 2017 Hamburg Conference. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/refugees-latest-g20-protesters-crazy-hamburg-germany-angela-merkel-ibrahim-ali-black-bloc-anti-a7831606.html
