Innocent elephants are being killed in Africa, innocent civilizians are being killed in Syria. A few days back I read that 100 Syrian civilians had been killed the day before by the government of the ruthlessly authoritarian obviously doomed to fall Assad, the same estimated daily rate as the ongoing slaughter of Africa’s elephants. This is the sort of connection that my generalist mind makes out of all the pieces of information it is constantly absorbing.
So which is more disturbing to you ? If you were a philanthropist, where would you put your money, to save the Syrians or the elephants. An interesting ethical question I’d love to start a dialogue on.
