Circular Thinking

“The whip isn’t used to strike his animals, he says; it’s to draw them towards him in the way that a house cat will follow a dangling string. … Extremists are not interested in improving welfare, but seek an “animal apartheid” whereby humans cannot even have animals as pets. … What I do is a benign tradition. It doesn’t have a negative impact on its subject.” https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2018/feb/28/britains-last-lion-tamer-its-not-the-archaic-victorian-practice-people-imagine
