At this stage the Plight of the animals - especially in Countries where there is Extreme Poverty - has become Excessive, this Causes the Explosion of Animal Populations that causes More Hardship and Suffering. Help the human to help the animal?

the Plight of the animals IS Excessive, but I would be careful pointing the finger at Countries where there is Extreme Poverty - as "we" in the rich countries are awash in industtrialized, Mega-cruelty (experiments, ...) that's very very hard to surpass

We as the human race have made the earth unlivible through creating and allowing an unequal distribution of resources from the earth, for human, animals and plants, by implementing and allowing an unequal moneysystem to decide who we are and how we live. This has brought us into a stage of survival-mode, where existing within this survivaL-mode, self-interest takes over and in the end we always choose for self in and as self-interest, at the cost of animals and nature. So first we need to correct the inequality in and as this money system to stop this 'survival-mode' in human beings, which starts with giving each human being the equal right to have the basic needs as food, house, education and healthcare. Once we as human have established this Human Right as basic needs for a decent life equally, we will be able to start Really caring for each other and within this for animals and nature. It is more than sad that we as the human race have let it come this far in and as existence, and it is more than sad that animals and nature have become the dupe of our human behaviour, but if we really want to make a change, we have to face reality and approach this reality in common sense.

Definitely Pets and Animals are at the behest of the Human, meaning they are subject to the conditions created or caused by the Human on Earth. Which is why so many species go extinct. So, as long as the Human condition is a disorder and not even the basics of human rights and dignity exist, it is difficult to care for animals/another species. Basic Income would definitely have an effect on how we think, what we care for, what we care about, and how we care for each-other, our planet and other species as well; because when the fear of survival is removed from the equation, the psychological disorder that is the result of inequality, injustice and fear within human society will start subsiding – thus implementing Basic Income would be giving ourselves a chance to start ‘fresh’ and create conditions on Earth that support ALL Life.

Yes. Noted.

This is a really cool blog because it shows how our existence is mirrored by the animals and nature.

Unfortunately, there will be no animal rights until there are human rights. When humans are no longer in survival mode then animals will no longer be in survival mode as they will no longer be abused and exploited for profit. BIG is a solution for this as it removes survival mode and so creates human and animal dignity.

Fascinating how little have we actually understood in terms of priorities when it comes to the relationships we create with animals and how nature as a reflection of our own nature requires Us to First focus on our Human Nature rehabilitation to then be able to coexist in a symbiotic and harmonious way with the Animal Kingdom and as such, abuse toward Animals due to profit-making schemes or mere imposition toward them 'just because we can' will cease to exist.

I just have to say matter if a person is down on their luck,flat broke,homeless and starving---these circumstances should never be used as an excuse/outlet 4 the torturing,starving,neglect,killing and exploiting of any animal. What we humans are doing to animals is a disgrace...we are the ones that could use a good culling...thanks Bernard
