Why do people continue to commit acts of animal cruelty?
Why is it that just about everywhere you look, someone is commiting an act of animal cruelty? Is it inherent; an evolution of the hunter instinct of our ancestors? Because it seems as though that from childhood, we are taught subliminally to mistreat animals: to eat their flesh, to wear their pelts, to take them from their natural environments and use them as slaves, or merely another entartainment medium (such as a circus, a zoo). Why do we do it people, and what will it take to end the suffering?
New research links urban planning and political polarization.
- Canadian researchers find that excessive reliance on cars changes political views.
- Decades of car-centric urban planning normalized unsustainable lifestyles.
- People who prefer personal comfort elect politicians who represent such views.
Progressive America would be half as big, but twice as populated as its conservative twin.
- Why can't we have a human-sized cat tree?
- What would happen if you got a spoonful of a neutron star?
- Why do we insist on dividing our wonderfully complex selves into boring little boxes
