Is there a wrenching political context missing?

Veronica┬┤s work addresses issues related to animal equality (equal consideration for all sentient beings) and speciesism (undervaluing of someone or of his/her interests because he/she belongs to a certain species).

Something this self-consciously precious isn't helping her argument.

eh, couldn't sit through it, I like my animations with more than 5 frames per second.

So, Art for Art's sake, ehhhh coulda been MUCH better... given that I don't have any context concerning her political agenda, and wasn't compelled to search it out by her animation... I'm glad I didn't waste those last two minutes and wrote this comment instead.

A much better attempt at a similar message [youtube].

I loved it. simple, touching and emotionally tugging.

I can see the parallels we have with most of our incarcerated felons in this country. How tragic that animals and people are so persecuted to have to live in prisons or cages. I say we kill them all, so they can dream all day.
