Ronnie Lee is a notorious ALF activist who recently revealed has state quite clearly the totalitarian mindset that drives his particular corner of the animal rights-liberation movement. From an interview he gave:
It’s about changing people’s attitudes and it’s about changing the way that people behave. People only ever change their behaviour for 2 reasons. One reason is because they want to and the other reason is because they are too frightened not to. We have to educate people, so that they want to change, but we also have to make it so they have got to, or else.
Nice. I am nearing the end of my European soujourn. When I get back I’ll read the whole interview and perhaps write about it some more.
