One compassion

Are those working for compassion towards animals reducing compassion for humans or strengthening it? Here I make the case that compassion ultimately knows no line of species, and that we should teach compassion for all beings.

Running of the humans

I'd never written a game, so thought I would try something as simple as possible just to start to understand how it is done. It just so happened that the Running of the Bulls was on in Spain the following week, so there you have the theme. If you don't know what the running of the bulls is, it's a stupid event where crowds of people, including lots of drunk tourists, harass bulls and then kill them once the event is over.

The first version of the game was HTML5/Javascript using the CreateJS framework. I made everything including playing guitar...

Running for Their Lives

Horse racing involves the slaughter of tens of thousands of horses every year, across the globe perhaps hundreds. The fact that people are completely unaware of this, and the other ethical issues surrounding horse racing, prompted me to write this piece for Animal Liberation Queenslands newsletter.
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, ‘What are you doing?’ The youth replied, ‘Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.’ ‘Son,’ the man said, ‘don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!’ After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said…‘I made a difference for that one.’
