The best way to do that would be to starve to death.

compassion

1340, from O.Fr. compassion, from L.L. compassionem (nom. compassio) "sympathy," from compassus, pp. of compati "to feel pity," from com- "together" + pati "to suffer" (see passion). Loan-translation of Gk. sympatheia.

To "suffer together" :

This would mean that asking another human to have compassion would be an imposition. This is important, but I don't think it extends so far to ruin the basic possibility of compassion.

The definition we have here seems to precede humanism. A compassionate person is not defined as someone who respects (negatively) the "rights" of others, as in a "just" world. The usual attempts to reduce compassion to the absurdity of a world in suffering (eat and be eaten), only seems to lay the grounds for compassion, as it is minimally derived - suffering together.

Compassion would have to be a positive expression, rooted in suffering together - Whats this? I am not sure. But we can remain open to the possibility of compassion, even if we are inevitably going to step on each others' toes.

If suffering is our basic proposition, what possible meaning is there in being together in the world?

Yeah it means if you don't like to be butcher, boiled, cooked, baked (well...maybe), roasted, electroshocked, knocked to death, etc.... then yeah by all means show some compassion and don't do or haven done to other beings what you don't want to be done unto yourself.

Don't eat meat. Don't destroy habitat that "belongs" to other creatures.

I hate to rain on your parade but someone has to point out that posts like these while seemingly nice and possibly well meaning are seriously incomplete. They make assumptions about life that are only possible to a limited perspective.

To a point. But if it was all peace the world would come to an end.

Pls, bear in mind, that practice of peace and compassion is not sufficient to change the world for better.
But it would be good thing to start with.
