Letter to the editor: All beings owed basic rights

I feel that I need to submit these salient thoughts to the discussion regarding Bill S.258, which proposes to make changes in the structure and make-up of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Board. These compelling words come from Moses Maimonidies, a Jewish philosopher who lived 1138-1204 C.E. They come from his work, “Guide for the Perplexed”:

“It should not be believed that all beings exist for the sake of humanity. On the contrary, all other beings too have been intended for their own sake, and not for the sake of something else.”
