"If it Flies, it Dies!"
"If it Hops, it Drops!"
"If it's Brown, it's going Down!"
Yesterday, as I was walking through the parking lot at my university, I saw a giant shiny new pick-up truck, covered in the decals of birds and decapitated deer, along with the phrases "if it Flies, it Dies!" "if it's Brown, it goes Down!". I see a lot of this across Texas. It's a southern tradition for men to go out into the woods on the weekend, drink a bunch of beer, piss in a bucket, and shoot stuff. And here in Texas, this is called a "Sport".
Hunters - men who are dedicated to reliving what they believe to be the "historical role" of mankind - killing stuff to put food on the table - except nowadays half of the meat ends up on the wall as a body-less ornament. My uncle is an avid deer-killer. We visited every Christmas, and my aunt would hang lights and pine wreaths around the necks of their decapitated "dear" victims hanging all around their home. One of them was a young moose, whom they named Gus, who always wore a pair of ear-muffs, so my uncle could make the joke "he didn't hear me coming".
My uncle had his own "deer-lease", a plot of land that he fenced in and filled with deer, which he would then go out with his friends on the weekend and kill. One time, he took out a book and showed me all of the pictures of the deer that were on his land - he had given them all names, and yet within a few months, many of them would be dead - replaced with a new crop. This is not considered strange, in fact it is a huge industry in the United States. Each year 12.5 million Americans go out on hunting trips, killing over 200 million animals. Approximately 1,000 people are injured each year from hunting accidents and at least 100 die from fatal wounds.
Hunters in America spend $22.9 Billion dollars each year on hunting supplies and trips.
There are plenty of excuses as to why hunting should be allowed, mainly the idea that the animal populations will overpopulate towns and cities, destroying farmers crops and fencing. However, isn't this quite hypocritical, that Humans are deciding who gets to Live and who Dies - all the while making an entertaining sport out of the judgment.
If we look at the Common Sense, as what is Best for All, we can see that Hunting is deliberate abuse of animals - that Human Beings are holding on to what they believe to be their Human Right - the right to own guns and shoot animals - without any consideration for the animals themselves. Animals are not Here for Human Sport. They are not ornaments that we can slaughter and take pictures of ourselves with and then decapitate them and hang them up on the wall.
Hunting for Sport will be outlawed in an Equal Money System - because it is a capitalistic industry that benefits NO ONE - and only supports the male ego to be violent and careless towards all Life in this World.
