    Oh, I see what you misinterpreted now; I “blamed” humanity. I guess I should have put a 🤪 or whatever. This is not a matter of pointing the finger at Joe Normal and saying something to him in an angry voice like, You suck. 😡 You know, it’s like, You watch how people drive on the road, or what music they listen to, or how they resolve inter-personal or international conflict, it’s like, you’d kinda have to be a little uptight to say: Humanity—We’re Always The Best We Can Be. Most people are insane, you know. You just have to get used to it.




    I cant help but despise humanity for destroying this planet & torturing helpless animals on a daily basis for consumption, entertainment, money. I hope for human extinction.


    Even though you wish death on myself, Anita, people who love and care about, everyone on the planet because some people eat meat. I don’t wish you death. I wish for your mental health to heal and your suffering to ease.


    Dear Irina and Teddy:

    I am so glad to see this Monday morning that the three reports for inappropriate content were removed from your posts, with no changes done to your posts (as far as I can see). I was concerned that such reporting will discourage the two of you from posting again, here on this thread and perhaps elsewhere in the forums. I know how badly I feel when my posts are reported for inappropriate content, and sadly, I know that any member can use and/ or misuse this Report feature. Irina and Teddy: please post again and may these forums be a safe place for you.

    Dear Irina: in your one and only post, you expressed your intense suffering because of human cruelty to animals, which is done mostly in the context of industry farming. I appreciate your advocacy for treating animals humanely, and that even though your suffering has been immense, you tried-in your single post- to be positive: “BUT I have to thank to the writers before for writing about the little time we have had on this planet & that the earth will survive us… I understand now that I won’t help any kind with hatred & sadness in my heart & will try to heal by not getting so emotionally involved and becoming stronger“-

    – it is this positivity, this graciousness, in the midst of suffering that gives me hope for a better today and a better tomorrow.




    It’s great to hear that people can wish death upon all of humanity and that’s acceptable in a community where people are supposed to be respectful.


    Hi Helcat,

    I’ve removed the part about wishing death upon all of humanity, as I can see how that could make some feel unsafe.

    Irina: I think it’s wonderful that you do so much to help animals, and I’m glad you’re working on inflicting less pain on yourself!



    We’ll all have to come to terms with being despised, sucking and being insane.


    Hi all

    For  own sanity I minimize my intake on information on cruelty (I am not sticking my head in the sand). I help where I can globally signing petitions to stop harming the planet and its in habitants etc Locally I  try to garden organically and make a wildlife friendly habitat and actively look after my human community as well. I can not change my past actions, but I can improve my future ones. In general I have found beautiful kind positive actions work better than what can be perceived as aggressive dooms saying behavior. ie making a lovely tasty vegan/vegetarian meal rather than pushing graphic blaming literature. As the saying goes ” the way to a mans heart is thru his stomach” I have also made a space opened to the public to meditate, sit in the garden or just make themselves a cup of coffee and read a book from our library. If we each make our own home/ neighborhood a place of peace we add to the world wide well-being collective and relive ours & others suffering
