Article: Jack the Ripper summary
has just published a short summary of our detailed academic article on Jack the Ripper
. We will never know for certain, but it is highly likely Jack honed the physical skills, and the psychological and behavioural attributes employed on his victims to such devastating effect, during his employment as a slaughterhouse worker.
It may once have been necessary to kill other sentient creatures in order to survive. Such excuses no longer have any merit, and indeed, the modern business of animal slaughter profoundly harms the animals abused and killed, the workers required to kill them, and even their surrounding communities. It undeniably harms consumers whose health is damaged by overconsumption of animal products. It is clearly time to end our destructive social dependence on industrialised animal slaughter.
