Although the author revealed his unsatisfaction toward mechanistic interpretation, he approaches his argument in a scientific way to counter his audience, who may still disagree with him based on the scientific fact of superiority in intelligent of humans over the animals.
Then it goes on to explain how the media reminded the viewers that these wilderness tricks were not intelligence, but wood smarts and cunning. Although I agree with that statement up to a certain degree, I don’t think that Joe learning and utilizing his wilderness skills is any different than anyone else learning and utilizing wilderness skills. The only difference would be that Joe used his abilities for a malicious purpose: to evade the law. To which the media deemed this as a “deadly game of hide and seek” or a “game of cat and mouse”. Society used these terms and others to dehumanize Joe and alienate him from our society.
They argue that the pluralism in a society would have different attitudes towards the treatment of animals so the state should resist interfering with different conceptions of the good . He does not reject the humanitarian side; the importance of human duties towards animals, but it is different to justice. Justice is a matter for legal state enforcement; in this sense we do need to regard animal rights in this language of justice and not only in terms of morality because it has no legal standing and we do need animal rights to have legal significance to protect them from cruelty ; in this sense we have to regard animals with morality and justice
Sadly, society continues to take less and less accountability for the pain and suffering we inflict on animals as a whole. I plan to argue that animals are sentient whereby acknowledging their ability to suffer and worthy of moral consideration. The basic premise of rights establishes that members of society are free of undue suffering in its various forms. An animal although not equal to humans should be afforded some level of protection under the same principle. If not, we as a society remain the latter and actively condone
For one thing, Marlantes says that soldiers achieve a sense of transcendence through fighting by becoming part of something bigger than themselves. He says, “There is a deep savage joy in destruction, a joy that goes beyond ego enhancement”. Now, today’s soldiers rarely fight for food or mates, but they do fight for each other. Moreover, fighting is exciting to humans. It gets the adrenaline pumping.
The significance of being a hero in real life or in literature is the development of certain elements of their characters that bring out the qualities that allows those around them to follow faithfully; without doubt or question. Beowulf and Odysseus both have their own individual paths that they have taken in their quests; during these quests they are able to establish to those around them through their acts the establishment of their hero status. Odysseus, also known by the Latin name Ulysses, was a legendary Greek king of Ithaca and the hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey (Encyclopedia Britannica). Beowulf is an epic poem from Old English relating to the hero exploits of Beowulf and his battles.
The use of animals for gaming and entertainment purposes constitute animal cruelty because it is heartbreaking, unnecessary and dangerous. Initially many would argue that the use of animals for entertainment does not constitute as animal cruelty because they aren't tortured. For example, some people say that zoos are essential because it is safer
Alfred Russell Wallace’s “Are Humans One Race or Many” powerfully asserts that human races differ in superiority due to the unique environments each group resides in. Through real-world examples, Wallace states that an environment’s “physical peculiarities” are the underlying factors behind both the separation of humans from animals and the superiority of certain races over others (Wallace 218). A critical element of this piece is Wallace’s elaboration on why humans are immune to the effects of natural selection. The example he uses is subtle but powerful.

When all the animals were taken away from the zoo, Jan and Antonia used their free space to hide refugees until safe passage to a new home was discovered.

Others believe that as long as animals feel like they are in their natural habitat that being in a zoo is acceptable.
According to Mark Twain's, "The Lowest Animal" there are few similarities between man and animal, but many differences. Twain also sends the message that animals are far superior to humans, through various experiments. The main differences noted are related to cruelty, indecency, and fighting, all of which put man below animals. First, cruelty is described as a trait that only man has, not animals. Animals will kill, only for what they need to survive, whereas man will kill for sport and enjoyment.
In one of his most controversial articles, Jeremy Rifkin sheds light on a unraveling case of animal exploitation in the food industry. It comes to no surprise that there would be an uproar of protests at slaughterhouses, farms and corporate offices, yet these large industry stay unaffected as the public has truth of what they are hiding. Groups like Animal Liberation Front, Animal Justice Project, and the Humane Society have all the same agenda; none are opposed to humans hunting for food in the wild, there problem is with animals thinking that they just live on this Earth to just be bred and slaughtered. No matter how many humans we overpopulate, we will always must always share this one and only Earth with these animals.
Rainsford was very justified to kill General Zaroff a mad man with a huge eager to hunt but it is getting boring to him, so he wants an animal that can reason. But there is one problem only one animal that can reason a human being. While Rainsford and Zaroff are eating dinner and discussing this new “animal” Rainsford is very much against him trying to hunt them, “ ‘But they are men,’ said Rainsford hotly. ‘Precisely,’ said the general, ‘that is why I use them. It gives me pleasure.
