To cultures. It is noticeable from Singer P’s book

To get to the root of this topic, it has to be realized that the
theory of human superiority exists because of different requirements and
cultures. It is noticeable from Singer P’s book (1991) view that: “Humans are just like any other animal, we don’t deserve any special treatment.” But humans are tended to think ourselves as better and smarter than other animals. At this point, humans are the most dangerous predators. In the other words, humans just consider
ourselves as gods and make rules to decide who or what will live or become
humans’ tools. Just because humans – the omnivores are at the top of the food web, does that give us – human the right to take animals’
rights away?

 

Nowadays, humans
consider ourselves as the king of planet earth which lead to the arbitrary
right for humans to treat any animals as implements. And it’s clear that
widening heavy industries and exploiting natural materials is the fastest way
to destroy and demolish animals’ habitats and also the Earth itself. For
example, humans pulling down trees and wiping out all forest for high buildings
as 13 million hectares of forest, have been converted into skyscrapers and
humans’ utilities. 1 Also with a few experiments taken by WHO, it has shown that in
balanced diet meat
takes over 20% of 35% nutrients intake daily for a perfectly healthy person
2. And there are 7.6
billion (nearest number in January 2018) citizens all around the world which
consumes a huge amount of meat each day. As based on the global meat
consumption 3, the total amount of meat consumption was 68 355 thousand tones in
2016. Furthermore, in the
journal “Animal Behavior and Cognition” by neuroscientist Lori Marino and
Kristin Allen called “The Psychology of Cows” 4, they have shown that
cows have exactly the same emotions as boredom, shyness and stress which affect
and alter their daily actions and schedule just like humans. Creatures have additional feelings as they further have same emotions like humans as they show adore, love toward their families. Creatures further
endure torment, emotions, as physically or rationally. Base on the research of
Gregory Berns, a professor of neuroscientist economics at Emory University,
Atlanta 5 has shown from the x-ray
scan of dogs’ brains that they have the same parts for emotions as humans do.
Also with a careful study by Swiss researchers led by Redouan Bshary 6 have documented that cleaners
fish also are very careful with their patrons as they gently caressing them
with their fins. As they show their carefulness to others as humans do.

But it has been seen that numerous circumstances when individuals don’t expose any generosity towards creatures. Individuals put an end to various types of creatures for unique events, for example, parties, weddings that demonstrates the cruelty of humans. Animals
are not only being used for food. They are also being used for entertainment. To
be specific, in Vietnam, it is no need for permission to use all kind of
animals for any purposes. As the news from 7 Thanh Nien News “Da Nang animal charity accused of selling
dogs to restaurants” by Dieu Hien (Sunday, April 17, 2016) in Dan Nang – Vietnam
and also images of dogs’, cats’ meat uploaded by The Guardian, have shown that
even the government organization could freely use animals for money and profit.
This has shown that our policies are not strong enough and thoughtful enough to
protect animals. Only from the small part of the world which is in Vietnam, it
is clear that even the closest and most loyalty pet like dogs or cats can be killed
for food. Furthermore, it is not the short-term action, it has existed in
Vietnam for decades. Most of the Vietnamese citizens consider that as ordinary
which is a huge difference from the Western and also some other Asian countries
traditional and perspectives. Unluckily, the technology is not good enough for
us to understand what animals want. But it is sure that animals do not want to
be humans’ slaves and tools. This life just accidentally took away their right
to be free. Not only being used, animals are also being slaughtered and
terminated for other industrial benefits. With all the evidence and data from PETA
– People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, 8 it has been showed
that millions of wild animal’s populations such as crocodiles or grey bears are
being killed for their smooth and fashionable fur and skin. The costumers have to
pay thousands of dollars for a piece of cloth and that money is being
transferred right into fashion’s company pocket. It is bitter that nobody would
stand up for animals’ rights rather than enjoy that piece of fur cloth.
Moreover, scientists and organizations are using animals for vaccine and drugs
testing experiments was showed in “Drug abuse potential evaluation in animals”
by Robert L. Balster.

 

It is clear that there
are many different perspectives about this topic. It is reasonable that most of
us do not care much about animals. As we live on Earth for millions of years
and we are freely using animals to survive and to live our life. For example, we
use them as food supplies, clothes, entertainment and so on from the beginning
of human race. Most of us are not bothering about extinction and animals’
rights as it leads to a global issue nowadays.               

It is obvious that
talking is easier than actual doing. Which leads to numerous reasons which go
against the statement: “we should stop abusing animals and other creatures”.
The “hard part” here is that we have no courage and best technologies to stop
using other animals as implements. Why is it “a hard action”? The reason is that
animals are the key which keeps us alive. Animals play a crucial role in our
life which it is still maintaining to be indispensable materials for foods and industries.
In the other words, the human cannot live without others species. Until today,
there is no competitor or replacement for animals as most of our resources and
tools rely largely on the animals. For example, nowadays, even though there are
some sort of replacements such as artificial meat but it is nothing match to
the originals. Technologies could be elevated and improved for our food
supplies. In the other hand, for science experiment field, it could be a
terribly and dangerously risk for scientists to use humans as the testing
subjects. In reality, it is undeniable that animals could not be replaced by
any other forms. Despite the fact that animals are irreplaceable, we as humans
cannot treat animals like rubbish or junk. As it was scientifically proved that
animals do have emotions like humans which consider them as intelligence and
amiable. Which leads to the fact that they have the right to live and
experience life just like humans do. Humans cannot replace “the food” instantly
but we have the ability to give them a hand and help them. As no more wild
animals will be captured and tortured illegally and they will be protected by the
whole human kinds. Even though there is no excuse for the action of killing
animals but it is reasonable when we grow our own limited kind of “products”
for meat as far as they are not endangered species. The reason is that we can
breed thousands of ordinary pigs or cows together for “meat” but other animals
in wildlife are so rare. From the data of WWF – World Wildlife Fund’s data 9, it has been shown
that if there were 100 million different species on Earth, at least 10 thousand
species will go extinct every year. So that it is undeniable that we can use
animals for our daily supplies but we have no right to wipe them out of existence
or slaughtered like rubbish. For this part of conclusion, we just use what we
need like “pork, beef, lamp” and so on but we cannot touch the wildlife animals.
As human ourselves have a responsibility to keep on with generating and saving animals’
genetic information to prevent the global extinctions of species.

It is still
controversial that “should we use animals as our tools.
In my opinion, it is wrong to use any animals in any kinds of way to
make our life better. But as it was mentioned above, we cannot survive without
animals. To myself, I consider it as a natural thing to use animals for our goods.
It is true that we have to fulfill our minimal needs as we must have pork, beef
lamp which mean we have kill some animals. Charles Darwin once said: “It
is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent that
survives, it is the one that is most adaptable to change”. It is totally
natural, in the food web it is clear that the predators always eat and use the
lower ones for their own goods. It happens the same to us as we – humans are
just adapting to the environment. We need nutrients for living as there are
plenty of them in animals’ meat. But we must understand and realize our
limitation, we cannot kill all animals to fulfill our needs as many company or
illegal hunters are slaughtering thousands of wildlife animals. It is too
narrow-minded to think that meat industries are cruel. In fact, it is a good
thing for all species. As we will have a sustainable source of food which mean
we don’t have to kill other animals anymore. Furthermore, it is an opportunity
to keep animals’ genes safe forever. It also will increase the chance for
biodiversity as many good offspring will be born and discovered. About the
other fact about zoos or circus which keep animals for entertainment. That it
is not only bringing join for humans but it is also bringing join to animals,
as they will interact with many people and stay away from out-law hunters. Moreover,
as they will be taught some tricks which leads to a higher education to
increase animals’ intelligence. The only thing that we have to be conscious of and
always fight for is that we have no right to make them suffer a hard and dark life
as we can’t slaughter them and treat them like rubbish. We must feel grateful
that the mother nature giving us the key to survive and to co-existing on this
planet.
