We Humans Need to Better Define Ourselves

I would like to see us human beings define ourselves better. I believe a powerful way to do this is in how we treat animals. We need to treat animals we use for food with respect. I don't like the idea of cutting off chickens' legs while they're still alive along a conveyor because it's efficient. I don't like cows crowded in filth and chickens stuffed together never seeing the light of day.
I guess I can select food sources that use humane processes. I may be able to do that by going local. I might also be able to avoid hormones and pesticides in the processes. I would be eatting healthier and more ethical.

We also need to honor the animals we recognize as being particularly intelligent including: dolphins, whales, primates, and elephants; not worship but simple honor. Can we do that? It might go a long way to define ourselves in a way that reflects who we want to be. We can't let industry do this on our behalf. We must make conscious decisions and take action to define ourselves.

Here's an assortment of books and DVDs on the subject from Amazon I recommend.
