The world is becoming increasingly inhuman in its conduct. Every time you turn on the news, you are served with more and more cases of how people have grown ever more violent towards even their offspring. As time goes, people become less concerned with such happenings, till it fades into the background. The result is a people who are comfortable with a shocking amount of violence in our environment. Time has come for there to be a difference.
Even children now find this normal. They see no problem with all the violence around them. A neighbor can suffer, and nobody realizes. Even if it is children suffering when we see the news, we tend to quickly brush it off, since it is not our children anyway.
The instances when we turn a blind eye to the injustices committed against fellow men go to make even blunter the instincts that are supposed to guide us to making better decisions. We see people being harmed, human trafficking, slavery, and yet we do not rise in protest. So when they announce incidences of animal cruelty, we are already way less concerned to care. This is why there is such a large number of animals currently suffering, with no one to protect them. This can be seen when animals are used as testing mules for so many experiments and trials, most of them simply too cruel. The meat industry is also a major contributor to this.
There are so many cases of people behaving violently towards the animals they see on a daily basis. It is hard for someone with a pet to imagine such cruelty being meted on such lovely creatures. This will however not change the fact that it is what is going on.
The way these animals suffer goes to show people how far we have come as a society. The strong are leaning on the weak at an alarming rate daily. This would explain why someone would find it normal to injure a harmless and peaceful pet. Pets are simply not able to survive without their owners. They pose no threat to their wellbeing. They thus deserve better treatment from these people.
People need to rise up and do something about such acts. There exist so many animals under oppression that need someone to advocate for them. This will be the beginning of the end when people say that they see there is a problem. It should be a big deal when some of us are abducted and nothing is done about it. We also need to be vigilant when it comes to incidences of animal cruelty. There has to be a collective agreement to support causes like the Humane Society of the United States’ one. The Humane Society tries to do its part in creating awareness of what is the true picture of such cruelty. When you support them, it goes a long way.
