Professorís Manifesto: Vegans Must Illegally Overthrow Society to Save the World

Professor’s Manifesto: Vegans Must Illegally Overthrow Society to Save the World by KATHERINE TIMPF July 9, 2015

A professor at the University of Texas at El Paso wrote a manifesto saying that animal-rights activists must rise up and commit “illegal raids” and “sabotage attacks” in order to save the world from a “mass extinction.” In a 2009 piece for the Animal Liberation Front titled “Manifesto for Radical Abolitionism: Total Liberation By Any Means Necessary,” associate professor of philosophy Steven Best says that groups like PETA are just not radical or progressive enough. After all, they work with corporations (boo!) “in order to regulate, not eliminate, the ongoing nonhuman animal holocaust.”

Best explains that capitalism is “destructive,” the state is a “corrupt tool,” and keeping animals enslaved will definitely lead to a “mass extinction” — and so basically it’s just not enough to go vegan or adopt a rescue puppy.

What does he suggest we do instead? Well . . . We endorse a form of abolition that (1) defends the use of high-pressure direct action tactics, along with illegal raids, rescues, and sabotage attacks; (2) views capitalism as an inherently irrational, exploitative, and destructive system, and sees the state as a corrupt tool whose function is to advance the economic and military interests of the corporate domination system and to repress opposition to its agenda; (3) has a broad, critical understanding of how different forms of oppression are interrelated, seeing human animal, nonhuman animal, and earth liberation as inseparable projects; and, thus, (4) promotes an anti-capitalist alliance politics with other rights, justice, and liberation movements who share the common goal of dismantling all systems of hierarchical domination and rebuilding societies through decentralization and democratization processes.

Well, I guess I’m out, then. Thirty-six rescue dogs later and my hair falling out from malnutrition just wasn’t enough to turn the tide, I guess.

Funny....Millions of Texans think the answer to our problem of idiot professors teaching Communism to our students on our dime is to fire every radical sucking his/her cushy salary out of our pay checks. Get a real job, if you can, and stop indoctrinating ignorant students who won’t be fit to live in our society.
Parents should not put up with their children’s radicalism. If they don’t respect you or your values, cut them off financially and leave them $1 in your will.

Why the hell does the University of Texas have a member of a terrorist organization (Animal Liberation Front) on its faculty?
