The Death of America’s Wild Horses; Vision-To Save the Horses Not Destroy Them

Many Horse-people have a vision – To save America’s Wild Horse Herds from harm and even death. Then return them to America’s Public Lands – This is the Vision of the Majority of Americans. . .

Occam’s Razor – the theory explained simply: Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily. We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances. The most useful statement of the principle for scientists as well as others is “. . . when you have two competing theories that make exactly the same predictions, the simpler one is the better.”

“. . .or, in the only form that takes its own advice. . . “Keep things simple!”

The fact humans have a vision of something, often very significant to us all and within all of our lives, that vision should never be lost. But the universe has a push-n-pull complex of many things. These things also do this to many people’s vision. Perceptions are irrelevant here, as well as life background, education, or even life-style. As it is the vision that pushes folks forward, and often encompasses something much better, far superior than anything within their life. Expectations abound!

It is when a person’s vision lacks something, which reality or what it is established upon, may be false – a deviation from the simple, to so complex, it becomes something of a non-value. Large corporations, government agencies, and simply large groups have this restraint, a death-grip so to speak on an individual’s visions of what is – and promotes what cannot be. As within largeness or vastness an individual spirit, vision, and unique traits are ripped away; then replaced by the mundane, fitting in, following the group, and apathy soon follows, which by the way is all promoted and awarded. The vision, sadly, is lost in total.

It is at this point, for example, government agencies of today, or corporate structures involving many personnel, dislikes vision – dislikes unique and especially a personal vision of right compared to wrong. As a vision, it becomes simply an unworkable methodology. It is then, within this grasp of imitation of nothing, that minds are lost, decisions made upon narcissism or worse, greed.

Then to cover up errors, many more problems created, and exponentially and similar to compounding logarithmically (i.e. Einstein’s Theories of the expansion of the Universe), just as nature would have it, and more problems abound. But nature is also designed for the ability to break things down to its simplest components, eventually to the core, or eventually to a single component that drives things forward. This can be positive — or it can be negative.

We can look for many resolutions, but it always comes down to the bare minimum, the simplest – Occam’s Razor. The fact is resolution very simple, and within the Wild Horse situation of today, very simple — government agencies and people are the problem, not the Wild Horses!

Simply take the Wild Horses out of holding, place them back onto Public Lands – Obey the laws that have been given to us over the past decades – whereas, sharing Public Lands and not destroying them remain the priority, and all is resolved.

One must ask, how did we all become so convoluted, so problematic, that now it is many horse advocates that are piling on and adding to the BLM and their already tremendous pile of created problems, has become reality. Within this realm, and beyond all else, the simplest and is and remains by far the most obvious right now in time — America’s Wild Horses face imminent Death! — John Cox – With A Vision-Saving Horses Not Hurting Them

    We cannot allow the BLM and USFS and Farm Bureau and the extraction and mining giants and the domestic livestock grazing associations to pull the wool over our eyes. There are no excess wild horses and burros on their legally designated land.

    Most people are extremely self-centered – not surprising, but it is irritating and frustrating that the human species and their ME ME ME attitude is so prevalent and acceptable in our society. Most humans are funneled into doing and accepting things that others tell us, regardless if it is right or correct or honest or honorable or moral … or NOT. Then, to make matters worse, the guilty spend their time and energy trying to cover up their misdeeds. We are not taught how to think – only taught how to follow what we are told – like sheep going to slaughter.

    Congratulations to anyone who refuses to be flushed down the drain of ignorance and greed.

    Well said, John and grandmagregg. I pray our wild horses will be saved before it’s too late.
    Why are some so-called advocates promoting birth control? That is not even good, ole, common horse sense.

    BARBARA AND GRANDMAGREGG, I have followed you both in rt.’s articles and every chance i get in the news outlets I try very hard to let people know what the government is do to wh/b . And wildlife in general is not safe from this regime in office. Many times I’m elated when I get a positive response . i have been regularly messaging beohner through his f/b page and cornyn, too. I just hope it helps but I have watching this pipeline deal they are trying to shove down everyones throat. And it is all greed , our prez talks with a forked tongue ,and out the side of his face because he had to be pressuring dirty harry to get this done since he is the one who appointed the new director of the doi . then they got congress to fast track oil and gas leases . man, it’s just not looking good . I hate greedy people look up BEN CARSON we need him for prez in 2016. a very down to earth man. just wanted to tell you thank-you ,I follow your writing .

    Thank you for all you do, Cindy.
    Here in KY we’re going to be fighting Kinder-Morgan which wants to use old gas pipelines for fracking fluids. Anything for money.
    A female wolf was killed near KY lake by a hunter claiming he thought she was a coyote. Nothing was done to him. There’s an open season on poor coyotes .
