Rhinos the Defenceless
Injustice is part of human nature. It existed for as long as man was able to record his activities and before. It led to war and extinction and will continue to do so. Injustice towards the defenceless is bad, it rules out recourse and scars deeply. When injustice happens towards those who are not here yet, those who will live in future, that is the worse.
The world and its rulers have done it over and over allowing destruction and eradication by people and often did it themselves. Over time we have lost a lot and now, because of no will or the presence of greed the loss will continue and so will the disappearance of Rhinos.
Rhinos are defenceless against people, poachers, systems, subcultures, governments, politicians and even CITES. Yes Rhinos are defenceless against us all. We all are standing by, pontificating or protecting sectional or self interest whilst Rhino numbers are dwindling. Blood from humans and Rhinos flows but we are allowing ourselves the luxury of talking. Shame on you, shame on me, shame on all of us or, is it all of us?
