Ned Kalin (UW primate vivisector) in Wired For Sadness. Discover. April, 2000.
If Ned Kalin believed that monkeys were simple automatons--slaves to a fixed response to a given stimulus, he could be forgiven for the suffering he causes. But he believes otherwise, apparently, and this is what makes him demonic.
To be fair to Kalin, he does not work his evil in a vacuum. He has many helpers and partners. Consider his recent paper: Calling for help is independently modulated by brain systems underlying goal-directed behavior and threat perception, coauthored by Andrew S. Fox, Terrence R. Oakes, Steven E. Shelton, Alexander K. Converse, and Richard J. Davidson.
Kalin also thanks H. Van Valkenberg, T. Johnson, J. King, and the staff at the Harlow Center for Biological Psychology and the National Primate Research Center at the University of Wisconsin for their technical support.
And throughout Kalin's publications one finds a clear and overt statement concerning the similarity between human and monkey suffering. Here's another example:
Science has demonstrated unequivically that we share our small planet with other beings who think and feel in much the same way thay we do. This discovery has not resulted in a renaissance of understanding and a widening of our moral concerns, but instead has resulted in people like Kalin being paid by us to frighten them, to mutilate them, and to kill them.
Somehow, compassionate, ethical people fell asleep while people like Kalin gained control. It is time to throw the bums out.
