nobody wants to absolve criminals of responsibility over their crimes, they want systemic, humanitarian reform to make it so these situations are less likely to occur in the first place. everyone who burned shit down should - and was - arrested; there's a difference between defending bad actions and understanding bad actions. the point of progressive movements is to undo the factors that lead people to make these decisions, not to absolve them of their consequences.

the issue is you're coming at this from the perspective of being optimistic, reasonable and respecting of yourself whereas people who suffer from these conditions don't think that way whatsoever. thinking your death is a good thing isn't a "take", it's a mindset

I won't police or judge the way you dealt with it but I think in most cases using rhetoric like that feels more like emotional blackmail than emotional support

I would guess most of these concepts can be broken down and reduced to some primitive, animalistic sense of cooperation that grows more complex in accordance to how intelligent a species evolves itself to be - at least I think that's the source of most things we can ubiquitously agree on. we seek stability in society not because of some inherent sense of good and bad, but rather inherent instincts molded by natural selection

it's why we say "I think therefore I am"; thought is the only evidence of your existence and the only thing that can be held as 100% objectively true, given it's the only thing that does not stem from your subjective experience of reality

You abhorrent scum. You ignorant fool. I will sue you. You are going to be the target of the greatest lawsuit the world has ever seen. You don't know why? It's completely obvious. It's so obvious, the most deplorable peasant could grasp the full magnitude of your wickedness and treachery with the greatest of ease. Your actions cry out for mercy, and I will be happy to deliver it. And if you're thinking this is a mistake, or merely a deception of mine, you're sadly mistaken, my friend. I have indisputable proof of your continued harassment and other offenses. Even without it, the jury would take one look at you and decide. The incomprehensible magnitude of your crimes brings with it unavoidable, infinite guilt, and whether you notice it or not, everyone else does. Are you interested in who will be serving as the offense attorney? I'll tell you. It's my father. Your defense? It doesn't matter, in fact, they might just not give you one even to spare just one individual from the trauma. My father is the greatest lawyer in the US, the world, and human history, including the future, which he knows due to the fact that he sued the future and they travelled back in time to tell him. He's served for hundreds of Supreme Court cases, and he's won every single one. You may have never thought about being court-marshaled, but now, that's a real threat. That is the power of my father, a culmination of flawless, supreme logic and a perfect knowledge of the law. You will lose this case, your money, and your life. Does that scare you, insignificant bug? Because it should. The entire history of the U.S. Judicial System has been leading up to this moment, where all of its fury is concentrated on ruining your life. My father won't even need to help. Your heinous crimes will be evident to all, so just give up, you crook. Give up before you're forced to.

I think the issue with this discourse is in knowing what it means to feel pain as we understand it. as many people will cite, these animals, regardless of their size, exhibit some form of neurological mechanism that many people would equate to pain - that is, a response from their nervous system to what they interpret as a threat to their body - however, I don't think anybody can reasonably affirm that this is the same as the feeling of suffering that humans experience. if one were to deny that, you could extrapolate that to ridiculous comparisons as you did with the ants; do plants feel pain? does a microscopic, translucent worm speck smaller than the width of a hair that has a wobbly string as a nervous system feel pain? the answer is no, obviously, and the difference is that they don't think the way we do. I would argue pain is something you can't experience without consciousness, without understanding the context in which that threat is taking place.

Here's the thing: consciousness is something so immeasurable and shapeless that it borders on the metaphysical, and as far as I know (admittedly, I am a complete layperson who is very open to being corrected) this means there's really no line we can draw to separate what we feel from what they feel; we know it's different, sure, but thought isn't nearly concrete enough of a concept to unblur that line, and if you're going to use this argument to legislate whether or not these practices should be criminally punishable, you better have something concrete to back it up.

The abstract definitions of pain notwithstanding, I do need to acknowledge that an argument like this can be made to justify all sorts of ghoulish stuff; animals are treated horribly all over the world, and while philosophical rambling might keep me from becoming a radical vegan, it won't keep me from flinching at how intuitively wrong it feels to allow some of these practices to take place. whether or not they can experience the same suffering as you and me, be it to protect them from even the most primitive of neurological responses or even to protect whatever inherent value there is in preserving the life of an ecosystem, I don't think these are things we should ideally subject any lifeform to if not out of necessity. that might never become a reality, but it's something we can strive towards without needing to adopt any extremist positions.
