How do you explain the beauty and complexity of Western civilization to brutal savages?

While I would not dream of using arguments to diminish the horror of the September 11 attack for thousands of people, I would also suggest that the people who died in the attack did not suffer more terrible deaths than animals in slaughterhouses suffer every day. Moreover, the survivors of the September 11 attack and their loved ones have an array of consolations--patriotism, the satisfaction of U.S. retaliation, religious faith, TV ads calling them heroes, etc--that the chickens, whose lives are continuously painful and miserable, including being condemned to live in human-imposed circumstances that are inimical and alien to them as chickens, do not have available. They suffer raw, without the palliatives. Doubtless the majority, if not every single one, of the people who suffered and/or died as a result of the September 11 attack ate, and if they are now alive continue to eat, chickens. . . .

In conclusion, I think it is speciesist to think that the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center was a greater tragedy than what millions of chickens endured that day and what they endure every day because they cannot defend themselves against the concerted human appetites arrayed against them.

Never forget the heros of that terrible day. Never forgive the savages who caused it.

"Death is nothing at all" and
misc. quotes from fire and rescue
workers...some that didn't return

You know, my Dad is retired Air Force. He served 27 years, almost all of that was in "Crash Control" on the flight line. That means that they were protecting the planes when they were coming in. If one was in distress, they rolled the trucks out "just in case." He was lucky they never had a major disaster on his watch - the planes always landed safely or with minimal problems. Funny how something like September 11th changes your outlook of things. I guess I never really thought about how dangerous that work really was. . .
Thanks for the post, Sirgawain. . .and for the ping, ST!

Thank you for posting your beautiful post. I know that for many as the days move into months away from the horrific September 11, 2001 murder of innocent men, women and children it is easy to lose sight of the images of that gruesome violent day. The mainstream media has worked very hard in erasing these images from our view so as to not inflame the passions of the American people. So hard in fact that we have been protected from the stark brutality of this heinous cowardly terrorist act upon a freedom loving people.

It is however, IMHO more important to remember with clarity and purpose September 11 so as to harden our determination and resolve to see that terrorist scum are removed from this earth and shoved into the deepest bowels of hell.
