“Animals are more than ever a test of our character, of mankind's capacity for empathy and for decent, honorable conduct and faithful stewardship. We are called to treat them with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don't; because they all stand unequal and powerless before us.”
Matthew Scully, Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy

“When you start with a necessary evil, and then over time the necessity passes away, what's left?”
Matthew Scully, Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy

“Sometimes tradition and habit are just that, comfortable excuses to leave things be, even when they are unjust and unworthy. Sometimes--not often, but sometimes--the cranks and radicals turn out to be right. Sometimes Everyone is wrong.”
Matthew Scully, Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy
