Man Burns to Death for Animal Rights...Why?

From Oregonlive.com: Portland Authorities Investigate Why Man Set Self Afire Near Fur Store": "Authorities are trying to figure out why the man, identified as 26-year old Daniel Shaull, would burn himself in such a terrifying manner. The incident occurred near a fur store that has been the subject of numerous protests."



"[O]bserve that in all the propaganda of the ecologists—amidst all their appeals to nature and pleas for "harmony with nature"—there is no discussion of man's needs and the requirements of his survival. Man is treated as if he were an unnatural phenomenon. Man cannot survive in the kind of state of nature that the ecologists envision—i.e., on the level of sea urchins or polar bears..."

For more answers to "Why?", there's a whole list at the Ayn Rand Center, under the heading Environmentalism and Animal Rights. Here are some of the animal-rights specific articles:
