Join Bay Area Vegetarians for their discussion of
Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of Animals, and the Call to Mercy
Sculley is a journalist and former speechwriter for President George W. Bush.
Okay, before you stop reading this, listen to what Karen Dawn of Dawnwatch says:
"Matthew Scully has written a beautiful book in which he bases his argument for animal protection not on rights, liberation, or ethics, but on mercy. He tells us, "We are called to treat them with kindness, not because they have rights or power or some claim to equality, but in a sense because they don't; because they all stand unequal and powerless before us. Animals are so easily overlooked, their interests so easily brushed aside. Whenever we humans enter the world, from our farms, to the local animal shelter to the African savanna, we enter as lords of the earth bearing strange powers of terror and mercy alike."
