I'm gonna have to concede that the motor industry analogy was too weak to explain the point on my mind. Gonna have to give up on that one altogether I reckon ... There is no true parralel anywhere I can think of with which to analogise.
Was a complicated thought I was having. Best I can offer as to what is on my mind is contained within the following ramble ..
I find myself constantly observing that there are many areas in which the faster 'cures' are put into place the faster the original 'problem' seems to escalate. Examples (mostly p***-poor, admittedly) I can think of include:
The faster good people and good causes create places for abandoned animals the faster the problem people seem to aquire animals and then abandon them.
Violent crime seems to escalate in direct accordance to attempts, by law, to stamp it out.
The more money they pour into education the faster the average educational standard seem to fall.
The faster well intentioned people try to increase our freedoms the faster our genuine freedoms seem to be slipping away.
The more 'labour saving' technology that emerges the harder we end up having to work.
The more they build bigger and better roads to allow traffic to move freely the more vehicles appear on the roads and the worse the congestion gets.
The more initiatives made to eradicate poverty the wider the wealth gap becomes.
Attempts to reduce teenage pregnancies by sex education, free contraception, housing and benefits etc, seem only to have resulted in an ever increasing number of teens seeing pregnancy as an entirely choice of 'career'.
My personal theory is that, pretty much across the board, 'problem causers' multiply in direct proportion to well intentioned attempts to accommodate the out fall of the various messes they create.
If I am correct then solutions which simply accomodate the fall out of problems are integral escalators of the problem and, despite the best of intentions, are thus part of the problem and nowt to do with the cure.
Any reduction of any problem, I therefore reason, will never come by solutions that accomodate the outfall of the problem but only by solutions that attack the cause of the problem at it's actual roots.
Being too damn dense in the head to see owt but the simplest of things; I can only see that the deepest root of the problem of animals suffering at human hands is the human delusion that animals exist to serve or convenience us in ANY
way at all.
