Denial of rights of animals

Experimental visualization of narrower problems

As partners with humankind on this earth, members of the animal kingdom obviously have the right to appropriate care, respect of their habits and protection from unnecessary suffering. But even these minimal expectations are completely unfounded. Animals are pumped full of hormones and antibiotics to fatten them up for market, they are cooped up in factory farms without exercise or contact with the outdoors, and they are slaughtered with little regard for their lives as sensate, if not human, beings. So pervasive is the unconsciousness of humankind toward animals that even the outrageous protests of violent activist groups have made very little social impression at all.
