Food for Thought: Steve Best on Animal Rights versus Other Radical Philosophies

This is a very thought-provoking video with Dr. Steve Best, a brave activist scholar in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Texas, El Paso. Have a look at it. In the video, he explains why the concept of animal rights is so much more radical than other revolutionary schools of thought. He insists it's more radical because it changes our personal lives - our ways of doing things on a day to day basis - far more fundamentally than any other worldview or set of philosophical beliefs. I think he raises some excellent points here, worth thinking about. Take four minutes out of your day and check it out. Best is very eloquent. And the guy has got guts. He is a fearless voice on behalf of the animals. And what he says here will make you think - and think hard.
