Have you ever seen a cat play with a mouse? If you have, you will understand the context of my first Ask the Audience question:
Are Cats Evil?
That question is actually too broad, take it more limited in scope: is the way they play with mice evil? …encouraging a mouse to try and run away again, giving them (false?) hope, only to pounce on them moments before they get away, successively wounding them more and more, driving them to exhaustion, torturing them, making them suffer…
Please motivate your answer.
There is not supposed to be a right and wrong answer, this is an opinion question, I consider all answers to be correct. Hence, I don’t consider debate interesting — the interesting part is supposed to be the further exploring of other questions within the light of our chosen answers to this one.
A friend emailed/IMed me to say:
“ek dink cats is baie baie evil. as hulle so groot as ons is, dan sou hulle ons opeet. onmiddelik.” Translation of the conversation:
P: since my twitter isn’t working… I just want to say, I think cats
are very very evil.
P: if they were as big as us, they would eat us up. immediately.
H: you mean like lions? or you mean house cats as big as lions…
P: yeah even more evil
