30 Bananas a Day!

I met David nearly 20 yrs ago when he was a budding philosophy grad student who had taken up animal rights. We used to show up at the same protests. My students adored him because of his witty straight-forwardness in dealing with hecklers who whined about our efforts to stop animal abuse.

 

Two decades later, David is a veteran philosopher with a long list of accomplishments. Not only has he made significant academic contributions (some of his peers think he has the best-going animal rights philosophy), he doesn't leave the lay people behind either! He provides topics suited to a more general audience as well as numerous teaching aids.

 

David is relatively unique in that not many philosophers build their credibility on the topic of animal rights. For most, animal rights is a side-dish. However, David takes it on as a main course and as such he is a pioneer in the most important area of social justice in history!

 

Animal rights is foundational to civilized behavior of humans for it challenges us to choose between cruelty and compassion. The ramifications of that choice will determine the destiny of this species.

 

We encourage you to frequent his comprehensive site:
Dr David Sztybel

 

You'll find not only much to learn, but also much to use!

@Prad,

Stupid me...I did not even know a doctorate of animal rights existed.  Good for him. 

I personally think I am ready to frequent his site as a next step in my own AR journey.

Thanks for sharing and Peace, PK

@prad...

I feel better now:D 

I think I will feature this.  I skimmed the site and it looks like it has a lot of solid information. 

Is it possible to change the title here to read more like an AR title?  Its up to you, but IMO, that might attract more people.

Peace, PK

well you had no reason to feel bad really, because you were right about the 'doctorate' being in ar ethics just as his post-doc is in anti-vivisection. these are just areas of specialty where he's done his studies.

so the confusion likely comes from the term 'doctorate' which can refer to the specific topic as well as carrying the idea that he has a doctorate in philosophy or that he is a doctor of philosophy.

is it any wonder i call the halls of higher learning looneyversities? :D

david produces first-rate stuff! i tell people not to get into a debate with greger or mcdougall unless they are very well-prepared, but with sztybel, you are dealing with a philosopher, so he's already an expert in the art of debate!

you are probably right and i should have thought of this earlier. i don't want to change it now though because doing so will mess up the link i sent out. i'll add it to the ar on 30bad op though. thx for watching out for this!

BTW, has this been added to the animals are my friends group yet?

i haven't, but feel free to do so, pk.

Thanks Prad will check it out.

Love how the site starts off.

On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' And Vanity comes along and asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But Conscience asks the question 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.

Take Care,

bigG,

it's an appropriate quote for david. being an ar philosopher takes its toll with academic opportunities - you already know about dr stephen best. it takes guts to make the choice david did and to stick by it!

in friendship,

prad

you are most welcome rudy!

in friendship,

prad

Thankyou Prad ;)

Great intro for a man ALL humanKIND should know and acknowledge as a Kind and Compassionate leader and visionary of truth and reality.. Your right there too Prad!

People easily know the names of actors (pretenders), yet they do not know the names of "living" genius's who walk, work and stand tall for ALL life, seeing and voicing Unity within a society thick in the mist of Extinction Crisis, ill-usion, and Selfish gratification..

People easily know the names of actors (pretenders), yet they do not know the names of "living" genius's who walk, work and stand tall for ALL life

this is very beautifully put, noha!

there are many who work tirelessly to show that the creator didn't make a mistake by placing humans on the planet.

in friendship,

prad

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
