Are Your Rights Being Outlawed?
A post at Namara Pets Blog raises some interesting questions.
Firstly: Is a chicken any less of a pet than a cat?
Think about it for a moment. Cats are arrogant animals that seldom receive instruction and follow their own whims.
Chickens on the other hand can be well trained and very responsive.
Who decides for you which pets you can and can not keep?
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly: Is there a conspiracy to make you dependant on others?
It seems that the idea of people being self sufficient is offensive these days.
- Raising half a dozen chickens in an urban zoned area is illegal (even on 2.4 acres of land!) but battery hens are legal.
- Wood burners are harmful to the atmosphere and discouraged, but authorities cannot supply the electricity to support the alternative.
- Fast highly processed food is cheaper than healthy unprocessed food.
Pet owners may be on the fringes of this debate, but unless someone somewhere makes a stand Western Society will self destruct.
What do you think?
Should we be allowed a chicken as well as a cat at home?
