Equality for all humans and other animals
I like this quote: "Today is the day that we celebrate the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. King stood for two important and fundamental values: nonviolence and equality.
Forty-two years after Dr. King was murdered, we are still a nation of inequality. People of color, women, gays, lesbians, and others are still treated as second-class citizens. Yes, things have changed but we have still not achieved equality among all humans. And nonhuman animals continue to be chattel property without any inherent value.
Forty-two years after Dr. King was murdered, we still see violence as the solution for every problem. We have still not yet learned that violence is the problem; it is not the solution to the problem.
We should take a few minutes to meditate today on the notions of equality and nonviolence. We should resolve to make Dr. King’s dream a reality. In the end, his dream is the only thing that will redeem our reality."
All sentient beings have an equal right not to be treated as commodities, not to be hurted, not to be used, not to be enslaved, not to be killed (for food, clothing, or any other reason), not have their products stolen (e.g. milks and eggs)..
