I am like you...Do animals need human rights?
Well, there's never a dull moment with Die Zeit's cover story. This one keeps up the pace and channels a number of volatile themes that will play differently in Germany than they would in the United States.

Despite the fact that European readers, generally, are less likely to, say, question the relationship between the figure in the picture and, well, the current Governor of Texas, it is still a lively issue. And, to make sure that I don't cast aspersions only on one ideological side, it's fair to say that PETA is bigger in the United States than it is here in Europe.
The questions are significant, and ongoing. Should we do research on "animals?" Can "humans" benefit from testing on "animals?" What kind? Should animals have rights?
Nothing is "easy" at Die Zeit, and that is as it should be.
