Humane and enlightened liberals

Just as the S.S. killed people in gas chambers and did not think of themselves as committing a horrific crime but, on the contrary, persuaded themselves that they were performing a noble deed on behalf of the Reich, so ordinary people shopping in supermarkets who buy food that is cheap because of pesticide use (or at least it would be cheap if the supermarkets were not addicted to making billions of pounds profit) thereby helping to wipe out birds, bees and butterflies and playing their part in the destruction of nature – we are on track to destroy at least 40% of all species by the end of the century – do not think of themselves as participating in the greatest crime humanity has ever committed but, on the contrary, regard themselves as enlightened and humane liberals who love animals.
