"Cruelty is as Cruelty Does"

From the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine:

Elon Musk’s Cruel Brain Experiments

Since 2017, Elon Musk’s company Neuralink has subjected animals—including monkeys, pigs, rats, and sheep—to invasive, often deadly brain experiments.

Through 2020, the company paid $1.4 million to the University of California, Davis, to use its facilities, where experimenters removed portions of monkeys’ skulls to implant electrodes in the animals’ brains as part of Neuralink’s development of a “brain-machine interface.” Only in 2022, following a public records lawsuit by the Physicians Committee, did the troubling details of these experiments begin to come to light. The company is still conducting experiments on animals at its facilities in California and Texas.


FYI: definition of the term “cruelty” from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

cru·​el [krü(-ə)l] 

1.    Disposed to inflict pain or suffering

2.    Devoid of human feelings

3.    Deliberately causing or conductive to injury, grief, or pain without mercy

4.    Members of the human species who totally lack compassion or mercy to other living beings

5.    Elon [“EE-lon”] Musk
