For those unfamiliar with the good professor, Gary Francione preaches a strain of animal activism which were it to be followed, would guarantee that animals never achieve decent treatment, let alone rights.
Francione is the self-styled leader of “abolitionism.”
He leads those in the animal movement who call themselves “abolitionists.” They think they are patterning themselves on the Abolitionists of the 19th Century who opposed slavery.
But our animal abolitionists confuse the meaning of the word “abolition” with “opposition.” Abolition means prohibition by law.
Nothing modern abolitionists do is aimed at prohibition by law of the Animal Holocaust. If they were doing so, they would be agitating for socialist governments around the world, as such governments are the most likely to ban animal agriculture.
Our modern abolitionists are content to be vegans and urge others to be but oppose everything done by the rest of us .
