Dismissing people whose ideas are on society`s fringes comes naturally for most of us. Whether it`s immigration, foreign policy, education or the environment. Take the animal "rights" movement, for instance. Not to be confused with the animal "welfare" movement, a mainstream pursuit concerned with managing the puppy and kitten populations. Animal "rights" activism is more about protest, pressure and raising hell than actual animal care. It`s about taking civil rights that we enjoy and giving them to chickens.
