I thought after having been vegan for so long and watching so many undercover meat industry videos that I would be immune to watching so many videos. Not that I wouldn't be moved by it, but simply that it wouldn't break me to watch another one.
I was wrong.
I have lost all faith in humanity. I feel like as if I'm suffocating, everywhere I look someone is hurting someone else. In every place there is someone is suffering from greed, anger, and hatred.
Yesterday I was going through facebook and someone shared an article on stopping the production of videos of animal crush fetishes. These are videos in which women crush to small defenseless animals to death. Sometimes by stomping on them. Sometimes by shredding them into ribbons. Beheading them. Sitting on them. Driving nails through their brains. Ripping off their ears. It's been more than 24 hours since I just saw pictures and I still can't forget about it. I feel sick, filthy, bestial, preposterous. I just want to vomit.
I think rape isn't as sickening as this. People who get a sexual high from these videos are felches. They don't even deserve the title of filth. People like these are a sorry excuse for the insurance that wouldn't cover for their mother's abortion requests.

I can't stop crying.
"I have lost all faith in humanity."
With people like you and many others here we still have lots of hope.
The rest of the un-humans can go to hell.
I do agree many people are simply a waste of food and air.
For the rest of us we need to continue to fight for them because if not they will have no one.
As BigG said, "With people like you and many others here we still have lots of hope."
I've heard of this a while ago... I don't watch videos like this (any animal abuse) anymore. I stopped watching these years ago. I don't know if that makes me weak or not. But I can't do it. I get filled with so much rage and sadness, and I don't know where to direct it so I end up directing it at myself.
So I don't watch them, so I can keep a clear head and keep fighting. I know what's happening, but I can't submerse myself in it, in videos of it, anymore.
Keep fighting. Acknowledge what is happening, but don't let it debilitate you to the point where you can do nothing. It's hard, I know. Just keep fighting.
Kimberry, I sent you a FR, I clicked before I could include the invite to join the e-soldier campaign that Prad started after this thread was posted.
You can join here, I think it can be as little or as much commitment as you please, I though it was an inspiring idea.
My faith in this world has found it's death. I can not breathe.
I'm speechless. I wish I could find something to say about this to make you or myself feel better. I can't even click on the link.
I felt the same way when I found out what Crush was. I think it may be the most evil thing I have ever seen or heard off. I used to go onto Stop Crush.org on Facebook and along with others report these people to Facebook, Interpol, etc. I had to stop going on there I also could not cope anymore. I thought there may be only a few people capable of being this sick in the world, but upon joining Stop Crush it became very apparent that there are thousands of them all networking some of them blatantly on FaceBook. After finding out about Crush I feel so strongly that the world needs to end. How else will these evil, evil acts cease. I cannot even begin to fathom why, how this would happen.
The world will not end but the insanity will one day.
It is up to us to continue to plant the seeds for the better future while mother nature and Karma takes care of the aholes.
I hope you right I really do, but if it isn't going to get better and it gets sicker I want it all too end.
Thank you. <3
These are the things we need to focus on, too. Not just fighting against the bad, but focusing on the good. Beautiful. <3
Not just fighting against the bad, but focusing on the good.
fight against the bad, for the good:
"Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo; the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end... because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was, when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going... because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for."
Wow! That was beautiful :)
