This documentary film mainly tells the story of the animal defense
movement in the USA, from inside and outside of the movement. It does
well its job by not taking any particular side and just letting people
express their opinions (regardless how little truth might be in them).
This film doesn't judge, or tells you what's right or wrong. It must be
you, the informed (or, probably, misinformed) viewer who must think and
consider what is more valuable: life and death or greed and pleasure.
Tough choice, huh? I've never been a fan of PETA, although I have to
admit that their campaigns are amazing (that thug hitting the fur
wearer woman is something to remember). Apparently, the title of this
film comes from some flyer explaining to children how their moms kill
animals (for dinner, clothing, etc). It's interesting how that fella
from the consumers association is outraged at this. Hm, perhaps it's
too much to expose the truth to children. Then again, it seems too much
to expose the truth to anybody. This same individual is very upset
because people defending the life of an animal don't care about how
much consumers like the taste of their flesh or shooting them in the
wild. We also have other characters like a married couple of furriers,
who are very scared for their children, because the people who save the
animals they kill and who didn't actually harm anybody EVER (contrary
to furriers, policemen, hunters and any citizen considering them
terrorists) could be around. Also because killing those animals is the
source of their income and, of course, it'd be quite difficult to find
another job not requiring the massive killing of sentient beings. Then
we have those who fight to free those animals, given ridiculous long
sentences in jail for the horrible crime of protesting against
gratuitous suffering and death. I guess a rapist is better than these.
After all, murderers and pedophiles are not terrorists. Alas, it's very
clear who is the caring, intelligent people and who cares only about
himself. The Truth is shining through lies, deceit and semantic games.
You can lie to yourself, that doesn't change a thing. In the meantime,
remember: Your mommy kills animals. So do you.
