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

Benign tradition: the watchwords of dominionist oppressors everywhere, tangled in the fraying strings of their immorality.

“In a statement, SeaWorld said it was disappointed by the conditions attached to the approval of its Blue World expansion, set to open in 2018, which would triple the size of existing killer whale enclosures.
‘Breeding is a natural, fundamental and important part of an animal’s life and depriving a social animal of the right to reproduce is inhumane,’ the park said.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/oct/09/california-bans-captive-breeding-of-seaworld-killer-whales)

Easy to confuse ‘breeding’ with ‘freedom’.
