Over the years a few people have suggested a move of this kind, finding my homemade blog a bit awkward. I always liked having a big list of all my posts. But this software here does allow easy access, and it is a more readable presentation. Also, comments are possible, although I will moderate it. I like the given background, because it suggests an idyllic, bucolic setting like that of an animal sanctuary. That is a positive vision. This was also a good time to rethink the title of the blog, Liberationist Thoughts. I prefer On the Road to Liberation. "Liberation" is more positive than "Abolition," by the way. Francione refers to the abolition of property status. It should really be the abolition of speciesism, and indeed all interconnected forms of oppression, but I address that question in my upcoming animal rights ethics book. Liberation, however, is much more than abolishing oppression. Oppression literally derives from "pressing down" on victims of injustice. It suggests harm, including pressing down on potential. However, liberation involves more than even getting everyone to stop pressing down on others' potential. It is also a positive call to the realization of good through positive justice, which I will argue in my book involves friendship, love, and community. I hope my reflections help others on the road to liberation.
