Invasive species sadism

Have you ever noticed that once a species becomes invasive, everybody treats it like public enemy and think that it is fine to abuse and torture it because it is "evil"?
I think that humans have a primal instinct to destroy the enemy, and because of anti war sentiment being dominant in the west, that has shifted from people to animals. What do you think?

      If you’re new here the one in this thread and the last thread they’re talking about is a serial thread ruiner. Usually when he enters a thread it’s to try make a show of intelligence, even when nobody asked or if it has nothing to do with the thread. The result is usually the quality of the thread taking an absolute nosedive, which is exactly what happened in this thread and the last one. Usually it’s confined to paleontology threads where he argues with that Chinese feather hoax guy who seems to have disappeared lately

                No, I’m talking about your discussion about whether or not it is inherently bad and that it’s an example of turning a thread to shit. You’re misunderstanding, I didn’t give any opinion on whether or not it is good or bad nor am I talking about whether genetic success determines right or wrong

                I have only attempted to point out that nature doesn't judge good or bad.

                I have failed, but I don't feel that's my fault. Nor is it inappropriate to point out obvious principles of biology on this particular board.

                And done so in a way that ensures the thread declines into what it is now. In case you hadn’t noticed, using an example like “a fair argument can be made that requiring every parent to raise their own kids is antisocial, and thus rape is good.” is asking for the thread to turn into a shitshow. Especially since that scenario is not even under nature’s lens but a societal one

                OP did not call me a moron and I did not argue with him despite me being fairly certain he is the person you think I hate.

                in fact I treated him with respect because the question and his subsequent comments showed insight. Though I have certainly heard paleoschizo complain about woke professors in science thousands of times before, and I've heard him claim to be studying fish at least a hundred times now.

                My treatment of the schizo is situational, much like the ethics we discussed itt.

                which is why I'm aware that he posts in hundreds of threads on the board every month, and we argue in only one or two of them.

                Because I also post in hundreds of threads per month. We both know we're posting together, and we rarely argue.

                though I could prove it to you via the ever-useful archives. I don't see the point.

                One of the more interesting things about animal behavior is how rarely they ask questions. On the extremely rare occasions when an animal asks a question, it's about themselves, not others.

                very weak TOM. An interesting similarity to the majority of users on Wauf.
                OP at least has the grace to ask what other people think. It's actually a remarkable thing in animals or autists.

                How to work around your hyperfocus on parts of sentences to the exclusion of other parts isn't really my problem though.

                I do want to dumb my ideas down for the average reader, but autistic people are not the average reader anywhere outside Wauf. And even here I'd bet most of the severely disabled posters are in fact just one or two people with a LOT of posts per day each.

        The fact you lot can recognize people by posting style is kinda scary. the only real recurring autist I remember is that one dude who was obsessed with the idea that big cats (machairodonts specifically ) evolved to prey on early hominids. maybe that was him.

        Also Jesus lord this is possibly the most autistic thread on Wauf at the moment. Between one side trying to justify rape and murder and the other side acting like homosexual sapiens is somehow separated from nature just because we can self reflect I'm not even sure who's trolling who anymore. Threads enjoyable nonetheless.

          I would prefer not to be raped or murdered, but nature doesn't give a frick what happens to me. And in the grand scheme of things, humans that raped and murdered did quite well.

              we all have ancestors that killed animals for fun and for dinner.

              And as long as history has been keeping track, people have tortured other people, and animals as well. No reason to think it hasn't been going on for millions of years. And no reason to be surprised that people still do it.

                getting rid of the human desire to kill animals would be like getting rid of the desire to drink water or have sex.

                it would mean the end of the human race the instant grocery stores disappear. People need to enjoy killing animals for food, that's a very basic survival instinct.

    I made this thread to comment on normies having no principles and being easy to convince to do bad things. Why are we debating the golden rule? Treat others as you would want to be treated. Animals can suffer, so if we have a reason to kill them, we should go about it with an attitude of making it quick and minimizing suffering. That's simple empathy. Having no empathy for animals signals to others a warning that you are not a good person to be around.

        In that case yes, if it is publicly supported and the animal is sufficiently demonized. I am not talking about killing the animals, I am talking about the hypocracy of treating them like evil and exacting excessive suffering on them, while worshiping native wildlife at the same time. Kill with respect, and never be a useful idiot. That's all I mean to ask

          it's situational.

          I know vegans that happily kill spiders and mice in their house. It's not hypocritical, there is no one set of human laws or rules that applies to every single situation. Human behavior isn't absolute, and autistic people can't understand this. Or are offended by it.

              good people get killed all the time by bad people they didn't expect. So over time we'd expect good people to either disappear, or be a lot more careful about who they're good to.

              Humans have a wide mean streak. As you'd expect from a species that's spent the last hundred thousand years at least killing anyone that wasn't mean enough to defend themselves in advance.

                An error isn't desirable. Over time they have harmful effects, ie: starvation, eradication of all life. That's why we have conditional morals instead of internally consistent ones, especially when it comes to complex topics like ecology. But if a moral contains any ifs or buts that's too much for autistic people because they have an intellectual disability. Even if you can explain it, it's too much for them. Even if you explain it and they can't argue against the explanation, they continue being stupid later because at least 2/3s of them consider themselves to be superior minds because they are better at rote memorization and some blogger retroactively diagnosed hitler with autistic depressive hyperactive disorder and an inoffensive caricature of their personality type is a favorite sidekick of scifi and fantasy writers.

                >i need to solve this!
                For you, effects seem to take a back seat to reasoning out a "just" system.

                Everyone else has this
                The way the world is -> (morals govern) course of action -> the way we want the world to be
                And it works really well because most human behavior is innate and what of it isn't, is conditioned during a period in which acquired behaviors become as strong as innate ones - so the third step is mostly agreed upon. It comes very close to the morals themselves being innate as a rational consequence of human nature and conditioned culture. The fatal flaw is distant cultures have fundamental moral disagreements that they can not talk out.

                This system is apparently complex, but it is actually extremely simple and already very consistent. Actions are indirectly governed by the desired future state. You get hung up on all the "programming" developed to avoid actions that are counterproductive on average, the principles, the rules. Everyone else already knows they're half bullshit and what matters is the end goal.

                So while you're having a breakdown over the difference between killing invasive hogs and shooting your neighbors pet dog everyone else immediately understands that we want a world without invasive hogs, and we now want a world without you.

                The ends do not justify the means only applies when the means have undesired side effects (ie: dead people). Most people get this, they understand that it actually means "if the means lead to concurrent unwanted ends, find new ones" but that's a little harder to remember and idiots might question it and come up with something even dumber.

                In the case of hogs it's really difficult to come up with means that the end wouldn't justify. And then, out come the people who think we need more pitbulls to hunt hogs, and recreational machine gun ownership. And THAT is what is meant by the ends do not jsutify the means.

                It is very pozzed. The professors are smart but they all seem to be ideolouges at the same time. The last few weeks in philosophy I had to write about feminism and nonwhite burden and the like.
                To be honest I feel doubtful if it is even a good idea to continue if it keeps up with politics being my main source material.

                Yeah I don't think I'd tolerate that.

                an academic needs to be free to question things like feminism and inclusiveness and what if anything we owe on account of history.

                philosophy like morality should reflect reality.

                I do question it. Personally I think its bullshit. I am studying with the aspiration of working with fish. I have a great intrest in freshwater fish and fishkeeping. My dream is to go to the tropics and well, I don't really know. Maybe work in the fish exporting trade? I am starting to realize that maybe I am looking at a meme degree here...

                there's a lot of room still for descriptive work on fish. I used to keep discus, and I think a couple new species were described just in my lifetime. It's crazy what's out there in the jungles that hasn't been published.

                Just ignore the philosophy part. Aside from philosophy of science, none of it is going to matter. Do the work but don't spend too much time worrying about it. It's the modern equivalent of religious studies or something. Not important to your job or degree, and ultimately it's up to you to decide what you believe in.

    With how dangerous invasive plants are, I never think twice before destroying them, because they destroy our local ecosystems.

      he's right regarding torture and abuse, but wrong that it only applies to invasives.

      In the US afaik it's still legal to catch tons of animals in leg traps, or hunt with dogs in some places. Archery hunting probably isn't nearly as clean and quick as animal rights guys hope. Nor is rifle or black powder. And with invasives we aren't even that strict, you can kill them pretty much however you want.

      It's not animal abuse if it serves a larger purpose. Not in the US anyways. We systematically torture farm animals, and don't worry much about the suffering of wild animals either.

      Limited empathy for animals is required for interspecies cooperation and subjugation AKA why we kept most of our intelligence instead of degenerating into leggier baboons.

      But whatever autistic neo nazis need to believe to imagine there’s a reason they aren’t repulsive

      PS: murder and war are not normal like fishing. Throughout all recorded history its been driven by emotions stronger than empathy and the people involved have always been remorseful and traumatized. Being a school shooter is not being a caveman chad. Everyone from every era would consider you a freak. Only now they call you mentally ill instead of possessed by animal spirits.

      partially correct, but empathy is still an emotion that can’t be given out lightly

    The whole invasive species concept is weird. I get a new species will disrupt the balance of the environment it moves to and potentially cause issues for humans until things settle down into a new equilibrium, so there are reasons to want to avoid it. On the other hand the issue is often framed as if nature were in a state of static perfection and god never intended for anything to change and species to move and outcompete others.

        you read what I write through your own lens and see only what you project onto my words.

        Rape is normal in the animal kingdom, so is murder. These are facts. Denying the animal nature of humans is also normal for the religious. Biologists aren't looking at nature or human evolution through a religious lens. We don't deny it or pretend it is either good or bad. We simply observe it and speculate on why it is what it is.

        OP is also asking about it. It gets confusing because behavior that's "bad" in one situation may be perfectly "good" in other situations.

    I think the idea of invasives is completely moronic. The ecosystem is always changing and we are just another way of doing it. There's no difference in an iguana hitching a ride on a piece of wood or on a boat to a new island. Armadillos crossed the Rio Grande around the same time we settled Texas. The first record of a red cardinal in the northeast US was in the mid 1800s. Species are always expanding their range because nature isn't a static entity.
    People boating from Portugal to Ireland brought a bunch of exotic insects and plants with them over 5,000 years ago. Are they still invasive?

    Really invasives are only species that we personally don't like regardless of the "damage" (by our terms) they do. Like lanternflies because they are big and colorful and easy to rile up normies with.

      OP is a moral imbecile who thinks harming animals is looked down on and outlawed for the animal's sake, and the easiest way to explain to him that context matters it by telling him the crime isn't against the animals, but against society.

      doesn't matter if he's a dog fricker or a cat killer, the crime isn't about the animal. His entire post assumes we're only trying to protect animals. Which creates dissonance when he (the moral imbecile) is confronted with situations where it's ok or even encouraged to kill an animal.

                No, its actually proof animals have limited privileges that fall below humanity's needs and you are 100% wrong responding to people who are 100% right.

                The pigs run counter to our needs so they have no privileges. The deers privileges are somewhat compatible with our needs.

                It's wrong for you to have sex with animals because that is one of their privileges - being spared suffering if it's not to fulfill our needs. You having sex with an animal is not a human need. It actually makes you more likely to develop penis cancer. So for the animals, and your sake, you are forbidden from having sex with animals. But go ahead, say "but the ethical consistency isnt there" in court and see what everyone thinks.

                But since you're the one who said "people who dont enjoy murdering people must be the crazy ones" and "psychopaths are just people who break the rules" i think you're going to go to court for the shooting deaths of students and faculty before you frick any animals

                Bestiality is illegal because its rape. Its rape, and it appeals to rapists. Its been well studied enough to confirm this. There’s 50%+ overlap between zoophiles and pedophiles and it would likely be 100% if we were allowed to monitor their internet traffic. Zoophiles and pedophiles have the same brain abnormalities. They follow the same dichotomy, with two types, the molester-rapist and the romantic-delusional. They are the same fricking people with the same mental disorder. Rapists, who rape things, specifically things that are totally unable to defend themselves. We all agree that raping children is wrong because it traumatizes and physically harms them. It is the same for animals. It psychologically and physically harms them. Animals recovered from self proclaimed good zoophiles often have to be put down because once they’re done being afraid of their old owner they just hate people, assuming they dont die from infections first.

                It is in fact illegal because we have some empathy for animals.

                Not really because bestiality has been illegal since they thought animals were automatons. In the middle ages they would kill both you and the animal if you were caught. The idea of being unable to consent doesn't apply to animals, since we can do whatever we want to them. We can castrate a cat, can't castrate a child. Nobody cares if a cows cavernous vegana is penetrated by your 5 incher, except that you're defiling yourself and the cow.

                more importantly all of these illegal behaviors and lots more have always been illegal or taboo because they're things humans tend to do quite naturally if not prevented.

                and as mentioned in another thread, if every culture throughout time and all over the world does something, it is probably innate. Meaning we evolved to do it and at least some people probably enjoy doing it. The laws exist because the behavior is perfectly natural, but now unwanted. Usually because it's detrimental to the society.

        No, its because they have no empathy for people even when not blinded by rage. You sound like a psychopath attempting to reason how normal people think. Animals and human empathy are separate and normal people only kill other humans when a stronger emotion overrides empathy. They normally become traumatized by this.

        Clinically speaking zoophilia has frick all to do with that and is most strongly correlated with pedophilia, impulse control disorders, autism, homosexuality, and being molested as a child.

        Psychopathy refers to a deficit in intraspecific empathy among other things nothing else. Not refusing to follow laws not disobeying standards. Thats literally commie talk. A psychopath is someone with no empathy for other PEOPLE.

            The diagnostic criteria for psychopathy are quite stringent. You can go refer to the DSM yourself. Most importantly to this topic, it has NOTHING to do with empathy for animals.

            And it bas nothing to do with zoophilia, which has been studied more than your dumb ass realizes. The official conclusion is zoophiles are not just identical to pedophiles, they ARE pedophiles, and follow the same dichotomy: romantic delusion+empathetic, and sadistic rapist.

                Also, specifically read the dsm2, liberals replaced it with aspd “compassionately”. Psychopathy remains a hard fact in neurology, of course (neurology, unlike psychology, is a science)
                https://neurosciencenews.com/psychopahty-neural-basis-18234/

                While a psychopath MAY disobey rules without remorse or reason this is not how they are detected because many non-psychopaths do as well. Disobeying rules is a normal and often healthy behavior. A psychopath’s defining trait is severe paralimbic dysfunction resulting in, ahem, moron words
                Not feeling bad when other people feel bad
                Having to pretend to have strong emotions of their own

                This is where normal personality variations cross the line and we want someone in the MRI to have a look so we can understand it better. If they’re just breaking the law they could also be an amateur philosopher and a psychopath in the military or working as a cop in chicago would just be normal.

                Most importantly you can find good studies that show that animal empathy is not necessary for human empathy so people squishing lanternflies is NOT insanity and humans did not evolve to camly murder each other.

              True, it's a strange aspect of modernity that most people have never actually been hungry, or known the joy of working to relieve their own hunger. We get a little twinge in our tummies and go to the store for some food and feel like that was way too much work.

              back in the day a person could probably go days without food on a regular basis, and experience real happiness when they finally killed some food. Might even throw parties and dance and feast.

              Also, specifically read the dsm2, liberals replaced it with aspd “compassionately”. Psychopathy remains a hard fact in neurology, of course (neurology, unlike psychology, is a science)
              https://neurosciencenews.com/psychopahty-neural-basis-18234/

              While a psychopath MAY disobey rules without remorse or reason this is not how they are detected because many non-psychopaths do as well. Disobeying rules is a normal and often healthy behavior. A psychopath’s defining trait is severe paralimbic dysfunction resulting in, ahem, moron words
              Not feeling bad when other people feel bad
              Having to pretend to have strong emotions of their own

              This is where normal personality variations cross the line and we want someone in the MRI to have a look so we can understand it better. If they’re just breaking the law they could also be an amateur philosopher and a psychopath in the military or working as a cop in chicago would just be normal.

              Most importantly you can find good studies that show that animal empathy is not necessary for human empathy so people squishing lanternflies is NOT insanity and humans did not evolve to camly murder each other.

              >humans did not evolve to camly murder each other.
              we did evolve to enjoy surviving a good battle. Though now our battles are loud enough and impersonal enough to scare the shit out of anyone.

            It's to the point where you could argue that not enjoying killing people, but becoming traumatized by it while acclimating was selected for as a mechanism of of meta-eusocialism, but not to the point where you could argue people don't mind or naturally enjoy it. The US army put a lot of time and effort into getting recruits to shoot back in their first firefight because before ww2 and nam, they didn't.

            People don't idly want to kill people. They can learn reasons that are stronger than empathy, but there's still that discordance in their head that fricks them up a little. Animals have less of an effect, but the more human-like the animal is, the more of an effect they have. That's why every culture is basically obligated to depict livestock species as grand archons of evil, filth, and idiocy, vermin are artificially hated and depicted as unrealistically nasty despite most pest animals actually being quite cute, smart and friendly, and worldwide people settle on applying the most brutal farming the least respectable, easiest to dehumanize animals like chickens.

              true, but we've had like a few hundred years of not killing people wherever we meet them vs. a few million of presumably killing every strange human.

              also as you point out we're actively removing killers from the gene pool and we still have enormous numbers of them doing it quite voluntarily either for fun or just because someone looked at them wrong.

              regarding military training, you're right. They do have to overcome the reluctance to kill. But there's a selection bias there. If you have killed people, or really want to kill people, the military probably isn't going to let you join.

              >All those years, the soldiers keep coming back mentally fricked up and behave nothing like normal people
              in all those years, the soldiers WERE the normal people. It's a very modern development that you personally don't have to go kill people.
              that's a luxury 99.999999% of your male ancestors never had.

                Not really because bestiality has been illegal since they thought animals were automatons. In the middle ages they would kill both you and the animal if you were caught. The idea of being unable to consent doesn't apply to animals, since we can do whatever we want to them. We can castrate a cat, can't castrate a child. Nobody cares if a cows cavernous vegana is penetrated by your 5 incher, except that you're defiling yourself and the cow. People have been confused by the recent focus on animal welfare but that's just applying a new coat on an ancient ban.

                more importantly all of these illegal behaviors and lots more have always been illegal or taboo because they're things humans tend to do quite naturally if not prevented.

                and as mentioned in another thread, if every culture throughout time and all over the world does something, it is probably innate. Meaning we evolved to do it and at least some people probably enjoy doing it. The laws exist because the behavior is perfectly natural, but now unwanted. Usually because it's detrimental to the society.

                Holy frick you are moronic and delusional. You shouldn't be allowed near children or animals.

            we evolved to kill animals. We evolved to enjoy killing animals. There's no reason to think we evolved to minimize suffering, in fact causing suffering is a normal, universal human behavior.

                it only matters if we worry about who has to raise the kids. In societies where kids are raised by everyone, rape is not bad.

                a fair argument can be made that requiring every parent to raise their own kids is antisocial, and thus rape is good.

                you assume women should have some choice in which genes are "good." Nature of course doesn't usually work that way. Rapey dudes have great genes as far as nature is concerned.

                Basically this is how women think

                They think this way because they have very low testosterone. Testosterone blocks a great deal of empathy, and also produces a great deal of violence and rape.

                women don't run things because they don't have the competitive and combative nature testosterone provides. Intelligence has nothing to do with it. Intelligent people also don't run things. People that run things do like to think they're highly intelligent, but they're usually not.

              I'm a layman so this may be the worst take in the thread but, I think empathy is a sign of higher intelligence in animals and is part of our evolution to be social creatures. Torturing an animal means you lack a certain mental barrier, it's a sign you could be dangerous to people. And it's generally shitty to not treat things how you'd want to be treated if you were in its shoes. This is the part where you pull out some disingenuous vegan argument. Anyway, you know when anons talk about "how would you feel if you didn't eat breakfast yesterday?" it feels like torturers wouldn't be able to comprehend that. They can only think on the surface, not any deeper. Being able to understand feelings makes a social creature better at group bonding I think. Or maybe I'm talking out of my ass since Romans and shit probably bonded over torturing people.

              I just don't like hypocrites. If you were being tortured, you'd b***h about it, so don't torture other things.

                Basically this is how women think

                They think this way because they have very low testosterone. Testosterone blocks a great deal of empathy, and also produces a great deal of violence and rape.

                women don't have it and don't understand it. And that's fine. It's also why women don't run things.

                I'm confused. You equate high test to being a violent rapist but the actual point was about how high test makes us more logical. So which is it? Are we impulsive animals or are we smart leaders?

                Wait, do you mean it in the sense that women don't run things because they're too pussy to stand up to violence or outcompete alpha males and it's got nothing to do with intelligence at all? That sounds moronicly feminist.

                A person can be both. Or neither. The dichotomy is a generalization.

                When I say leaders are midwits, I mean they have IQ's in the range of 120. Which is a good 40 sd's above the board average I'd guess. To people here, Donald Trump is a very stable genius. To most people he's a moron, but he'd fit right in on Wauf. People like Musk, Bezos, Gates, Zuck, etc are so far above Wauf levels they might as well be gods. But IQ-wise they're nothing amazing.

                These are bugguy's real opinions. he is a 40 year old half hispanic college dropout who wishes he was a paleontologist. He dreams of his poisonous garden plants causing a local cat genocide. He also hates dogs, a lot.
                he is absolutely insane and he larped as "his friend" to tell us he was a medicated schizophrenic and has been getting worse.

                This is because schizophrenics are NPCs. They essentially lose their souls and revert to being distilled essence of total fricking loser. Everything they say is the product of a man completely failing to live anything resembling a normal life until his already disordered brain simply gets stuck in a feedback loop and tears itself apart. Every schizo manufactured in a certain culture will act like every other schizo.

              The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where "feed" and "seed" both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

              I don't know why people struggle with this fact. You can watch pretty much any predator and see it toying with its prey when it has the chance. The only reason it's considered a negative behavior in humans is because we have the intelligence to understand the suffering we're causing. But no one considers a cat to be "evil" for spending 30 minutes batting around a half-dead mouse.

                this goes back to OP's supposition that the lack of empathy for animals is just a misdirected lack of empathy for an enemy.
                I doubt OP is right, since we don't have to see animals as an enemy to not have empathy for them.
                But it does raise the question of why we'd ever feel empathy for any animal or enemy ever.
                Part of the reason is probably domestication of animals. That requires a bit of empathy for animals.
                The other reason is probably strategic planning when hunting or fighting. We evolved to anticipate the actions and reactions of both our food and our enemies. And this requires the ability to get inside their heads. To imagine what they're thinking and feeling. And that means a bit of empathy even for those we plan to kill or subdue.

                But whatever autistic neo nazis need to believe to imagine there’s a reason they aren’t repulsive

                PS: murder and war are not normal like fishing. Throughout all recorded history its been driven by emotions stronger than empathy and the people involved have always been remorseful and traumatized. Being a school shooter is not being a caveman chad. Everyone from every era would consider you a freak. Only now they call you mentally ill instead of possessed by animal spirits.

                >why we kept most of our intelligence instead of degenerating into leggier baboons.
                that ironically enough was caused by empathy for enemies.

                no animal alive or extinct requires our level of intelligence and empathy to subjugate or kill.
                Except other humans.

                we are highly intelligent and empathetic because of war, not in spite of it.

                neither are rocks, did you think I meant rocks are your enemies or competition?

                what about solar flairs, waterfalls, lamborghinis, or bouncy rubber balls?

                do you see your mistake yet?
                Are you a tard or a bot or an esl or a bouncy rubber ball?
                You seem to have trouble with categories, a very common form of moronation on this board and an extremely rare one elsewhere.

                Rocks and everything else you mentioned are not animals. Nor are they in any way related to the discussion since this is about feeling empathy for animals, namely invasive or pest species, as undeserving of empathy because they are competitors or enemies. You are staggeringly, overwhelmingly moronic

                Nothing about my post indicates that it only includes animals or that it includes every animal.

                you are stupid. You sound just like the same stupid person you deny being.

                are rocks, cars and whatever other stupid shit you said enemies and competition? What else could you have meant if not animals, in a thread about the treatment of invasive animals

                since you asked, I meant
                1. food animals
                2. people that are enemies
                3. people or animals that are competition

                if an animal is not food, or a person, or competition, then I wasn't talking about that animal.

                let me know if you need more english lessons, I'm in a generous mood and have some time on my hands.

                yes, that was the point. I wasn't talking about cars, rocks, rats or wienerroaches

                >Which rats and wienerroaches are, since they steal and spoil food
                some people also eat them, so they're food as well.

                not what I was talking about but fair enough.

                people spend millions of dollars every year learning about rat and wienerroach behavior for the purpose of killing them. Which is the same reason we learn about our enemies and our food.

                empathy isn't just a positive happy place.

                part of the reason we evolved it is to understand the creatures we intend to kill.

            In a primitive society playing with a weak animal can prepare you to take on a stronger one later, that's the same Orcas do to teach their kids, Amerindians did it too, and Africans still do it, the "right" thing is whatever brings you more benefits.
            In more advanced societies like humans, in a hive-like social environment if everyone decides on something being bad then doing it, even if it brings a minimal benefit, will end up being a net negative so you won't do it.
            Now if everyone decides they don't particularly care, then you can do as you please, if you think you benefit from it there will be no one to care enough to stop you

            I'm a layman so this may be the worst take in the thread but, I think empathy is a sign of higher intelligence in animals and is part of our evolution to be social creatures. Torturing an animal means you lack a certain mental barrier, it's a sign you could be dangerous to people. And it's generally shitty to not treat things how you'd want to be treated if you were in its shoes. This is the part where you pull out some disingenuous vegan argument. Anyway, you know when anons talk about "how would you feel if you didn't eat breakfast yesterday?" it feels like torturers wouldn't be able to comprehend that. They can only think on the surface, not any deeper. Being able to understand feelings makes a social creature better at group bonding I think. Or maybe I'm talking out of my ass since Romans and shit probably bonded over torturing people.

            I just don't like hypocrites. If you were being tortured, you'd b***h about it, so don't torture other things.

            Empathy works with your kin only, anything that's bad for the rest is good for you and your tribe. The definition of "we" varies from person to person, but in general you only try to minimize suffering to "the rest" if there is literally NOTHING you lose from it
            >I just don't like hypocrites. If you were being tortured, you'd b***h about it, so don't torture other things.
            That logic only works if you're relying in someone else to be the arbiter of what's good or bad.
            There is literally nothing other than humans to protect us humans if every other being decided to go against us at the same time, of course they don't because we'd win easily, but still, nature is a fair game and we're winning hard

              with this I mean sometimes they include all animals on earth, or sometimes only a very small group of humans, but neither is wrong.
              You can consider every being equal but have no empathy and torture them anyways, or you can consider treating everyone respectfully (according to your own definition of respect) even if you don't consider them equal

        It's not so much killing them in more "fun" painful ways, it's about more efficient ways
        Most hunting laws are about killing one or two animals with a gun/bow/whatev, very inefficient

        But when something get designated "invasive" we can employ more efficient ways to kill: poison, blowing them up, running them over, etc
        Because they aren't for food, it's culling a pest

        The damage they would do to the ecosystem would be far worse than allowing them to run around
