Speciesism is the wide held belief that the human species is inherently superior to other species and has rights or privileges that are denied to other sentient animals. Speciesism can also be used to describe the oppressive behaviour, cruelty, prejudice and discrimination that are associated with such a belief.
There will be no liberation of humans without the resurrection of the natural world. Civilization has raped the planet. Forests turned into strip malls, oceans serving as toxic dumps, rivers are ditches turned into power plants, wildlife and forests are disappearing at an alarming rate and humans converted into production equipment and consuming machines. We must live in balance with the earth and other beings both now and in the near future.
