  • Segment Guests:
  • +  The War on Humans

    • Description: A leading bioethicist declares that pigs have more right to live than human infants. A Harvard Law professor advocates giving cows and whales legal “standing” to sue. In support of radical depopulation measures, a famous maker of nature documentaries lambastes humans as a “plague on the Earth”. Examples like these aren’t the stuff of satire or science-fiction -- they’re happening today. And as Wesley Smith reveals in the provocative new documentary The War Against Humans, they are part of an environmentalism that has become profoundly misanthropic. Wes joins us to talk about the impact of this war.
