    Yes, exactly.

    Animals in the human world should not receive rights in the same manner as human being's. They are nothing more then domesticated human property and should be dealt with as such in judiciary system. And the fact that they have CNS and can feel pain and a certain range of emotions does not negate the fact, that they still lack consciousness and the ability to understand the concept of rights, besides being totally purposeless resources. Therefore the concept of animal right's is not justified. But then again this is just my opinion and most people will disagree because they find it "unreasonable" or "baseless", but to me, the dog is two step's above the function of a computer or a TV.
    I think you are missing that I wouldn't want someone unbalanced enough to think like this around my children, either. Do children count as humans and get rights too? I am not talking about in this instance (since I don't know), but many people who commit animal cruelty harm animals BECAUSE they feel pain. No point in harming a computer because they don't get to see the blood fall or the computer cower from them.

    I don't think people are animals, I don't think animals are equal to people. I think someone who harms animals probably has issues with violence that isn't just going to manifest itself as "animal violence."

    I wonder how you can deal with that rather than just leaving. Can you sue for harassment? The owner even admitted to the dog acting like that (not that he would have in court).

    The reason why the guy was also charged with a misdemeanor weapons charge is because the prosecutors know that the felony charge won't stick. And presenting a jury with a choice of charges is better than letting the man walk free.

    Sure I think the guy overreacted, but then again, he said a year ago that he will kill this dog and the owner didn't care. He knowingly keeps a guard dog that doesn't like minorities and then employs people of color. The responsible thing to do would be to lock the dog away during business hours, hire a security guard or just get an alarm system. The owner is an idiot and should be facing some sort of charges too, I think.

    What about babies, who are also dependent upon their parents as complete caregivers? I don't think the babies are understanding some abstract notion of "love"....just that that THING there = security. It feeds me, cleans my shit, and gives me attention when I wail. The THING becomes a mother, a mother it loves, as it grows older. Attachment. Through history of dependency.

    What if the child is severely disabled and does not have the cognitive functions to ever realize this abstract notion of "love"? Would the mother who continue to love such a child, practicing narcissistic love?

    Now, would that mean that parents love their babies out of narcissistic love, because it is "a piece of them"/theirs and it is completely dependent upon them for its survival?

    How about adoptive parents? Are they then narcissistic in their love for the adopted babies who does not yet consciously understand abstract notions of "love" and just sees the parents as "security/survival"?

    Is narcissistic love then "bad"? What isn't narcissistic love when there's a nurturer/nurtured dynamic?
