Flying the Flag for Real Critical Thinking

It has been a big concern to Rouster that many in the world of critical thinking have been led by the nose into the murky water of "soft" animal rights. It has been a disappointing creep into a culture that, for the most part, championed rational and logical thinking. In fact, it was TV sceptical magician's Penn and Teller's expose of the world's second largest animal rights group, PETA, that led Rouster to support scepticism as a movement. However, unfortunately many high profile sceptics have allowed their own sense of self-importance and probably an awareness of certain sympathetic political persuasions to pursue the animal rights agenda.
