Humans are Idiots

“While billions of animals are slaughtered every week in slaughterhouses, compassion for them from the general public is non-existent. But when Cecil was murdered by Walter Palmer, outrage erupted around the world.

Humans are idiots, but we need to adjust our efforts to accommodate their idiocy.

Josef Stalin observed that a single death is a tragedy, but a million deaths is a statistic. It is just that inability of the human mind to easily grasp the scope of horrors that explains the outrage over Cecil and the complacency about the 60 billion innocent creatures murdered by industry every year.”
