Interesting audience reaction in this one, they're speechless, they can't even bring themselves to applaud the speaker

This article has actually pissed me off so much, the amount of people sharing it on facebook etc. "How could anybody do such a thing to an animal!" would put a rolleyes emoticon in but it upsets me too much

Ye I came across that story too, but it's just one elephant after all, and even if I do like to read happy stories about individual animals that were rescued, I don't like when cruelty stories focus on one animal and especially ones we don't eat. And the same people that will go omg that poor elephant, won't think twice about elephant rides/camel rides etc while on holidays. The trouble with stories like this, they always make it sound like an isolated thing, they're not even using one elephant as an example to get a bigger message across. Most news stories I've read on it just finish up like...and then Raju lived happily ever after.

It's the same idiots who'll tell us on fb about their outrage at dog or cat cruelty one day then post pics of their dead animal BBQ the next, it annoys the crap out of me.

Like that scumbag pissing on the cat a while ago, everyone was ready to behead him for his cruelty. Yeah, take a look at your plate before you start that.

Rant over.

I've never really needed to look stuff up for inspiration since going vegan but I was looking through my favourites on youtube recently and watched this video again, everything on her channel is great btw.

'And with that I'll go onto the ultimate morality test in my opinion, where you don't need to shift anything around to work out how you genuinely feel. The thing is we know what's right and wrong and if you imagine at the end of your life, you're in a boardroom and Alan Sugar, Donald Trump or, I dunno. God. Tells you, "I played a trick on you, I made you think you were in a world full of other human beings, when actually these were just characters in a kind of virtual reality and I did this to test the strength of your morality because I gave you a very strong sense of right and wrong and I wanted to see, whether you would bother putting that into practice within an environment where you believed other people didn't, and you had every opportunity to go with the minority, who did the right thing, but you chose for convenience to go with the majority, just for convenience when you knew deep down what you were doing was wrong.'
