I guess a fundamental part of the human experience comes from the connection with the entities around us. Having colonized almost every part of the terrestrial planet, I think the least people could do is to raise awareness on atrocities that violate a universal sense of morality.
Now, the US recently passed a bill to clamp down on animal crush videos (more about it @ http://www.humanesociety.org/news/press_releases/2010/11/bill_to_crack_down_on_animal.html). Well, a sense of justice and morals seems to be an innate aspect of human nature and the mind. Oh perpetrators, you are devoid of a sense of self and purpose, consequently there ain’t no havens for people like you.
