igniprimum: PETA and their Propaganda...

Ok, so I think it's fucked that the fur business mistreats animals, and I don't support Jennifer Lopez for any reason, regardless of whether she wears fur or not.

However, I can say with 100% confidence that the gratuitously violent propaganda distributed by PETA via their website,


brought me no closer to either of these senitiments, and if anything, it is because of such organizations and their propaganda methods that I am not more vocally in support of such causes.

They rely on shock, guilt, and moral coercion to press their message/agenda on people who would generally lack the ability to otherwise formuate their own opinions.

This method is identical to that used by apocalyptic religious cults and the like.

I guess it is little wonder that both kinds of organizations tend to be largely populated by people who have a difficult time thinking for themselves, and can only recite, parrot-style, their groups' accepted and prescribed rhetoric.
