Longing For Freedom
May 17, 2007 11:37pm CST
Every living creature,not alone human beings but plants and animals long for freedom.and want to be independent. The animals in zoos are captured and put in cages for our entertainment. Animals and birds that are captured and trained at circuses - If they could talk, they would make us feel guilty and regretful of our actions.

Yes, every living organism has the right for freedom. Be it an animal in a zoo or in free Nature, freedom is the basic requirement of all like food, drink, clothes, air and shelter. Supression of this very important factor leads to social / natural imbalance and ultimately revolution. We all as real lover of peace, must regard freedom as the basic utility to maintain peace and harmony in every level of life. Among all types of freedom in human society, I may say that 'Financial Freedom' is of most priority in this modern times. Our ultimate goal must be always to achieve it along with our near and dear ones. Thanks.

Animals in captivity are really not my cup of tea... We all know they don't belong there, and it's a bit depressing seeing them in cages or doing the bidding of some guy who gives them food in return. Thing is, once they're there, don't they loose the ability to go back into the wild? It's really a lose lose situation, unless they were born in captivity and have known nothing else. I guess if animals could talk, we'd get an earful. I just remembered Happy Feet :) Just to share though, I went to a village in my country, and saw a tiger in one of the houses' balcony. Can you believe it? The poor thing was chained and couldn't even walk in more than ten square feet of space. They said there was a time when it actually jumped down from the balcony. Well, if it were me perpetually chained to that dismal looking house, I'd certainly want to run away...

I agree with you, people loves freedom,but they always get rid of freedom of animals . Even in the dictionary,( I am not sure if other country's dictionary is like this, but China's dictionary is like this ), people describe animal just like: meat can eat, skin can made clothes,ans so on, if animal can talk, what they should say? so badly people treat them. they always could not get freedom due to peoples.

yes that is true, but tamed animals do not always want freedom, I have a cat who ran into my house and would not leave, she doesn't want to be out it is scary for her and she was so skinny, now she is not scared and she is well feed, she doesn't even look at the door to go out. She is not interested.
