Never a Christmas morning, never an old year ends,
but someone thinks of someone;
old days, old times, old friends.

Quote of the Day:
"My attention has been drawn of late to the wickedness of our proceedings as a nation, towards the ignorant and barbarous natives of countries on which we seize. What have we Christians done for them? We have usurped their lands, kidnapped, enslaved, and murdered themselves. Greatest of their crimes is that they sometimes trespass into the lands of their forefathers; and the very greatest of their misfortunes is that they have ever become acquainted with Christians.”
~ Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton (1 April 1786– 19 February 1845)
Interesting to note that even though this quote is over 170 years old, nothing much has changed in the countries invaded and colonised by Europeans.
I came across this quote by watching the old documentary, "Frontier" from 1997, about the disgraceful treatment of the indigenous population of Australia and their treatment at the hands of white authorities and population since colonisation. Most concerning is nothing has changed in the treatment of indigenous population in Australia since the early years of the whites in Australia, nor for that matter for the indigenous populations colonised by Europeans throughout the globe. Sad state affairs that needs to be addressed, if humanity is to ever reach maturity.
"Frontier" can be found via the following YouTube link: https://youtu.be/zQE75wmRgZo

Babylon 5

beautiful - will always be my favourite sci-fi production for countless reasons, one of which was the special effects and another was the story line. It should have gone on.

Well so what do I think? Well this individual needs to take a reality check and look at evolution and maybe have a look as this video:

BBC How Plants Communicate & Think - Amazing Nature Documentary
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-4w5xYLwiU

and maybe here is another that could inform as well:

What Plants Talk About - Documentary
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrsYRJi3EGw

Eating and damaging plants causes as much pain and distress to plants as eating animals does to the animals. Our species evolved and had brain growth due to a varied diet. Everyone has a choice to eat how they choose. The animals we eat also deserve better treatment for the sacrifice they make for us. So do plants. So if you do your research do it completely and research across the food chain.

We are balanced by evolution. As humans we can choose our balance. We can be herbivores if we choose or remain omnivores as evolution made us. What we need to do to is make the lot of the food that sacrifices its existence for us - animal, vegetable or mineral - as natural and comfortable for them as nature does. One was we can do this by being truly informed on exactly where our food sources are supplied from and by choosing humane source food chains, and not be going to food factories. This will send a consumer message to companies that supply food from inhumane sources that this is not where we want our food to come from, if we buy from opposition sources that provide food from human sources.
