“When we suffer . . . we suffer as equals.” ~ Philip Wollen
This is a world-wide must see video. Speaker Philip Wollen OAM is an Australian philanthropist who went to school at the Bishop Cotton Boys’ School, Bangalore. He is a former vice-president of Citibank and was also a general manager at Citicorp. I recommend that all of us who support animal welfare,generate this video in-mass on FB, Twitter, Pinterest, email and our blogs and ask all of our social network audiences to post as well.
On behalf of the innocent, sentient, living beings
who cannot speak for themselves . . .

I watched the clip after you recommended it to me, and I will watch the whole debate some day soon. Thank you!
You’re welcome! Would be interested in hearing your thoughts on both once viewed. Many Blessings! ~Gerean
I watched this entire debate about a year ago, or so. It was no contest. Philip’s speech and of his team members simply could not be toppled by the nonsensical reasoning of the opposition.
How interesting that you watched the entire debate. I did too and since, I have asked many humans, who had seen Wollen’s part of the debate, if they’d seen the whole gig, but not one person had.
I agree with you that there was absolutely no contest. The opposition humiliated their own-selves. Although, I want to be a person of exceptional grace, I have to admit, I experienced a delicious plate-full of immense satisfaction, bearing witness to their well-deserved spanking. I can’t help it. I’m 25% human ~ therein lies the blame. 😉 ~ G
PS ~ A long time ago, I accessed the transcript from Wollen’s portion and began to dissect it in an attempt to transform it into prose. Like many of my creative endeavors, it hangs in the lurches, waiting for the necessary inspiration, that may or may not appear. Oh well.
PSS ~ I’ve been gradually reading your work and I am hanging on every word. You are a rare find. I am blessed to have crossed your path. Thank you for your interest in my expression, as well. It matters to me.
Gerean, I am secure in my beliefs, my position—as I believe you too are in yours—for which I always listen to the opposition, with keen interest. Knowing your enemy, their reasoning and logic or lack thereof gives one strength, resolve, and strategic advantage, and as you say, a delicious satisfaction. 🙂
Gloating . . . it’s so human and beneath the fray. I feel kinda embarrassed whenever I go (down) there for a visit. 😉
