Violence of any kind bestowed on fellow men, or animals, will always breed violence. We can never have a peaceful world, whilst governments and rulers condone cruelty and unnecessary slaughter of other sentient beings. Leaders, who do not see blood sports, or any acts of violence towards animals as a problem, I can only assume are showing a true reflection of themselves.
'Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love.' ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
The law of karma is precise, it does not have favourites and neither does it care about wealth, or status. What we sow, we reap, in other words, whatever energy we transmit externally, will, without a shadow of doubt, return to bite us on the bum. Any person, who takes pleasure in hurting others, may well take heed in this law and realise the aggressive energy perpetuated during hunts, violent captures and needless slaughters of any animals, is not only harmful to the peace of the world, but is also gravely harmful to themselves too.
