If you follow this blog, you know that one of my major focuses (some might say “obsessions”) it the phrase “man or other animals” (“MOOA”) as it appears in a number of state and federal laws. That phrase indicates that the government perceives us all as animals rather than “men made in in God’s image” (as per Genesis 1:26-28) and who are “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (as per the “Declaration of Independence”). (See Man or Other Animals #1 and the “Category” “Man or Other Animals” which lists all of my articles relevant to that concept.)
By defining us as “animals” the government has achieved what Dr. Moreau attempted with chemistry and genetics in the fiction entitled “The Island of Dr. Moreau”. By defining us as “animals,” the government has presumably stripped us of virtually all of our most meaningful rights, and relieved itself of the obligation “to secure these [God-given, unalienable] rights” to every man, woman and child (found in the third sentence of the “Declaration of Independence”).
