Irish doctor with too many thoughts, too little time and a blog that's supposed to check in on reality.

If Only We Could Cull A Few Humans

Dr Jerry Vlasak, a surgeon and radical animal rights activist, tells us what he really thinks. He was banned in 2004 from entering the UK to attend an animal rights conference. Call me judgemental, but I really think he's messed up.
From Abolitionist-Online: "Ultimately, human overpopulation is the root cause of animal suffering. This planet was not meant to sustain the 6 billion humans who occupy it, much less 20 billion by the end of this century. Thousands of species are going extinct every year because of human destruction of habitat, and billions of animals are suffering as humans destroy their homes, exploit them for food and their own selfish ends.
It cannot go on much longer; sometime in the next few decades, and maybe much sooner, we will see a drastic die off of humans, whether through disease, natural disasters, or some catastrophic event. When human numbers are markedly decreased, things will improve for the rest of the natural world."


Even though he tells us he's a surgeon who spends his days saving human life, he thinks those who experiment on animals to save human lives should be killed.

Animals in laboratories are not there by choice; they are victims of an oppressive regime that does not recognize their right to life. Whenever there is oppression, those oppressed have the right to rise up and throw off the chains of their oppressors. Killing an animal abuser, who is not an innocent bystander, is morally defensible, and if they had the power to do so, animals would do it.

His strategy is pretty simple - All animal abusers should be politely asked to stop killing animals in their work and explain to them the scientific fraud in animal experimentation, as I was. If they refuse, they should be told to stop immediately, or suffer the consequences. If they still refuse, then they should be stopped by whatever means necessary.

He has an incredibly imbalanced and naive way of looking at the world - Evil are the corporations who are responsible for the 20,000 children who die each week for lack of clean water, because these evil corporations and governments spend billions on useless animal experiments concocted to impress their wealthy investors.

For animal rights activists like Vlasak, the world is simple. Cut down on the humans. Burn down the corporations. Murder a few scientists. Ignore such niceties as human rights, economics, human enterprise, politics and the scientific research that makes the world a better place.

it is a bit like killing an judge , who is not an innocent bystander, is morally defensible, and if they had the power to do so, homicidal manics would do it.
