|Barbaric cruelty or a fine art?||6||10:51, 25 September 2011|
Where's the art in mercilessly stabbing a defenceless animal, only to slaughter it for sheer entertainment once you;ve finished torturing it?
fight for their freedom! LOL that'll be a first - the bull wins so its released into the wild. Humans are omnivores and need to eat meat - bulls are animals - not blank canvases to be turned into artwork...
Humans need to eat meat, 'eh? News to me. We'd be better off if we didn't, for the most part. We'd certainly be better off without modern animal agriculture. It's yet another tradition that doesn't belong in our world today.
Absolutely barbaric! Certainly not a sport and certainly no art form. The bull is already weakened before it enters the ring by a blow to the kidneys and by rubbing vaseline into its eyes. Thereafter there is a slow agonizing demise to satisfy the blood-lust of those "culture" seekers. This scene is carried out Spain with the torture and slaughter of 30,000 bulls anually. As in most things in life, this "sport" yields much revenue to Spain, particularly in the tourist sector, they won't easily let this go. Whatever the true reasoning behind the Catalonian decision I applaud them. Finally, in one part of Spain at least, the higher qualities of humanity will prevail, the very ones that recognize and enjoy true culture.
In a few decades, bullfighting will be mere paintings of monkeys wearing giant swords soaked in blood, dripping in an erotic gesture to Eros. It'll be a favorite topic among history-teachers across the world, as the teachings will necessarily divide civilisations from primitive cultures.
