Hey, that would be like Rodney Coronado and ALF in microcosm. I'd love to liberate a puppy and keep him if I could take care of a puppy.
I have ethical issues about rescuing single pet shop victims with money and perpetuating the whole "puppy mill" system but if you're saving an animal from an abusive system that values money more than the puppy's life, you are NOT kidnapping, you are rescuing an innocent victim without giving in to terrorists.
Look, i have no business being here upvoting and clapping the way I do and I've been honest about that. You Robin Hoods have been indoctrinated so deeply that sometimes I just can't resist poking my nose where it doesn't belong and saying:
No. You are not the troublemakers, the corporations are. You are the heroes. Your actions may be small, but they are real direct action that has a small impact while all my philosophizing and hand wringing has NO impact.
That is why I am moralizing. In this case, stealing is GOOD for the puppy, good for the puppy's new person, and the only harm done is the right where it's going to hurt the puppy's abusers the most.
'Nuff said. has anybody ever successfully lifted a puppy and can I listen in?
