  1. Steve is SO inspiring. From reading his books and the legal papers and hearing him speak previously, I’m pretty familiar with these issues, but I never tire of hearing him talk about them. He’s a great story teller, which makes a great teacher, and I do believe this is the end of the beginning. I believe he will win in New York and, though it’s a small step for nonhumans, it’s a giant step for humanity. HOPE is the word.

    This is the wind of history showing us the direction humanity needs to go. Some of us may be ready and cheering, others will resist these changes, but the time of slavery and exploitation of animals, by humans, has begun to end. And when it will end, humanity will have evolved and acquired a missing and precious freedom it lacks at the moment.
