On the subject of bear bile extraction, some say we are also cruel to pigs, sheep, hens and ducks, and so all non-vegetarians have no right to speak. I think: 1) All cruelty should be condemned, but it is impossible to get rid of it all, so there should be priorities. 2) Of course, we should start by condemning behaviors which are the most brutal, the most dishonest, those that have the most power to awake the public, those with the greatest potential for change, those most likely to raise money and from there get the ball rolling. 3) Everyone has a right to speak up. Please don’t say anyone has no right to say something.
