    We prosecute people for killing certain animals that we deem important. That’s still speciesism, we don’t ask other animals which ones they think should be spared.

      Yeah, but we seem to do the same with people.

      It’s a weird feeling being allies with countries that enforce death penalty when your own country abolished such things long ago, for example. Same with encouraging lethal force for trespassing. Or just generally having an infrastructure heavily based on weapons manufacturing and sales, as well as various military shenanigans perpetrated through-out the world.

      But alas, here we are. Humanity hasen’t evolved too much regarding it’s own moral compass it would seem.

      Maybe we’re just a pretty shit species overall.
