Most people in "progress movements" which I read on social networks again and again confirm that they are in a bubble, covering themselves in flowers with posts about "achievments" e.g. "Company xx stops selling fur products" or "beef banned in restaurants of university zz" without seeing how all these results are political decisions which may not at all affect animals in the expected ways, for many reasons ranging from the anger of conservatives buying more meat as response to, simply, a move of meat consumers in other places... #ThomasSowell has a book dedicated to that : "The vision of the anointed : self congratulation as basis for social policy". In addition to his wise comments I add that the core driver in the formation of these bubbles is the latent homosexuality - as #bisexuality is universally innate - or sometimes latent heterosexuality, for gay & lesbian campaigners - it's about finding quick "results" for justifying gatherings driven by the resurfacing, so the agenda is never ever a rational and SYSTEMIC look at the issue but always #scapegoating by targeting of a few symbols brutally pressured to extort quick results and tell success stories (and make money through donations). Websites such as Avaaz and Change.org, not to mention all the big NGOs, are full of campaigners like that. The scapegoats are always picked because they resemble the spontaneity those who self repress don't accept in themselves - animals, nature, bisexuals, "homos" for "heteros" (so here we go nationalism, for instance), the #freemarket (aaaaallll the bullshit everywhere of socialists where "protecting the #environment" is just a dim cover for attacking the private sector, with not a single glance on science, e.g #pesticides : at low levels not dangerous at all, cf my work www.uraniumisagenocidegiant.com)... No rationality. The #animalliberation campaigners who are busy attacking private companies should understand that they are behaving exactly the same way as slaughterhouse workers venting off on bodies of animals, kicking cows, hitting chickens... So long as #animalactivism will be a cover for socialism it will be a total failure. Just a bubble, like Will E Coyote.
