In yet another of many clear, rational and intelligently presented statements from Joaquin Phoenix, he used his acceptance speech platform at the 2020 Oscars Awards ceremony to call attention to reducing animal suffering. An important quote from his acceptance speech is as follows:
But human beings, at our best, are so inventive and creative and ingenious, and I think that when we use love and compassion as our guiding principles, we can create, develop and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and to the environment.Joaquin Phoenix 2020 Best Actor Oscar Award acceptance speech
Human individuals and societies inherently allocate higher status and worth to beings with legitimate names and identity credentials, vs. beings with no formal identity. For the first time in human history, animals can now have identity credentials, at no cost, that exist on the same “human-grade” identity credential technology platform used for people, banks, governments, etc. DignifID digital identity enables any animal with a human or organizational guardian to have legitimate, cryptographically verifiable identity credentials. We will help to reduce animal suffering globally, as more and more animals are recognized with legitimate identity credentials. Visit the DignifID web site to learn more!
