Antonio Munoz Molina
Attempts to defend amusement parks and circuses on the grounds that they 'educate' people about animals should not be taken seriously.

No matter how civilized we are and how much society has curbed violent behavior. Human beings still have the same genes they had 10,000 years ago.
