    The British Union of Fascists, or alternatively the BUF, was a far-right political party active in Britain from its formation in 1932 until it was proscribed by the British government in 1940. It was founded by Sir Oswald Mosley, who became convinced of fascism after he visited Mussolini’s Italy. In truth, the party, while enjoying some moderate success, ended up as a failure. Stanley Payne described it as a ‘political oxymoron’, being developed in a nation where ‘there was neither space nor need for revolutionary nationalism’ and as such it is of interest to those ‘concerned with negative findings’. As aforementioned by Payne, the party was strongly nationalistic in nature, as highlighted by Mosley describing the party’s motto as ‘Britain…

    Animals don’t have feelings. This is the argument used for ages to support harsh experimentation on animals. In theory, empirical knowledge relies on the use of laboratory animals to conduct experiments. Time and time again these arguments have been disproved as unnecessary. Laws have been created to protect animals from preventable harm. Experiments involving animals must be approved by a board of ethics. In the case of “We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves,” the experiment with Fern broke a…

    Since 2001, the year when PETA’s co-founder Ingrid Newkirk declared the organization would intentionally become provocative, controversial “press sluts” to further pursue its goals, PETA’s media usage (notably the advertising method) has changed drastically. PETA’s media tactic has since then been widely criticised by various minority groups: feminists, black civil rights activists, and animal advocacy organizations alike. The tactic is considered by many to promote a “hierarchy of oppressions”,…

    Psychologists use animals to learn and understand some basic human behaviours such as hunger, thirst and reproduction. The use of animals in psychology links back to the 17th century in the UK. From this point of the history animals have been used for various psychological and biological reasons but now we face with a debate were people believe that animals shouldn’t be used in experiments. There are several reasons why people are against this but the first and, perhaps the most important one,…

    • 9 Pages

    The common idiomatic expression “be the guinea pig” has a controversial and deeper meaning behind it that many people don’t even realize. In society, we use the guinea pig as a symbol of being the first to try something, typically a dangerous task or unpalatable concoction. No one wants to be the guinea pig. When our friend tries an unknown food and it turns out to be delicious, there is a beneficial outcome to them being the guinea pig. Other people then eat the food and it becomes a learning…

    What is okay to do in the name of science and its advances? The debate on animal testing has always been around but more and more people are starting to disagree with it. So if so many people disagree with it, why is animal testing still happening? There are places like China where it is actually illegal not to test on animals before selling cosmetics to the public and other places like Europe where it is completely illegal to test on animals for cosmetics. So who’s right? There is the morality…

    Is animal experimentation justified? Some say yes, while the other side says no. Those that oppose animal experimentation argue that animals have their own unalienable rights and should not be tortured for our benefit. However, diseases such as smallpox, Polio, tuberculosis, and meningitis are not nearly as common as they were in previous times. Diseases that were thought to be incurable such as cancer and AIDS are slowly becoming vulnerable to new medicine that is being tested. Advocates of…

    In essence, animal rights is the idea that non-human animals should be treated with respect as an individual with inherent value, and the belief that they are entitled to the possession of their own lives. However, with the increase in demand for new cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and the need for medical research, these rights have been violated by the act of animal testing. I will argue that animal testing shouldn’t be a method we adopt. In support of my claim, I will offer three reasons. Firstly,…

    Animal research has paved the way for important discoveries. Kalat (2016) points out that many scientists believe it is “better to inflict distress under controlled conditions than to permit ignorance and disease to inflict greater distress” (p. 11). Scientists are faced with the ethical question of “What is considered inappropriate when using animals for research?” Studies show that “researchers look for alternatives to using animals when possible” (Jensen, Forsberg, Gamborg, Millar, &…
