A totalliberation problem

Totalliberation has a funny logic: you cling human ‘liberation’ to animal ‘liberation’. So you compare your problem to that of nonhumans. Yet again when you compare problems of nonhumans to humans, in the specifics, then this gets vehemently dismissed as being against humanrights.

I wonder if ‘liberation’ comes in degrees depending on what someone thinks would ‘liberate’ one/the other. Physically ‘liberation’ is the most important political action. Yet in the realm of discrimination, the term ‘liberation’ has a patronizing aspect about it … .

Suppression – and in the case of nonhumans specifically extreme objectigication – cannot change facts about the targeted subjects, their own integrity. In terms of discrimination exerted by humans in societies, ‘defense’ and seeking justice, is kind of different than ‘liberation’.

To deny that people, at any time, anywhere, can exert foul play and discrimination against othter subjects, is a gross self-illusion and sounds like there were some super good humans somehwere who had the right on their side in every case at any time, etc. Not realistic / helpful..

FLESH
First of all, the meat was needed for isolating primary animal cells. Once the animal tissue had been swabbed with ethanol, a tiny section was removed and immersed again in ethanol.

TAXIDERMY
“Things that Talk“ – at the Naturhistorisches Museum Wien. It shall be a source of inspiration and provide an unusual view of the museum

SPECIESIST BIOLOGISM
I will review a number of mechanical problems we offered kea in lab and field and I will show the way their behavioural flexibility may even include acquisition of tool use behaviour.

He proposes a new kind of art called “attraction art”, through the same approach and also discusses the role of the public as an equal part of the artwork in a performance piece.
