Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism
A Sociological Exploration of Speciesism.
I've often thought about this when posting on facebook or talking with everyday people who (I'm assuming} probably never think about animal use, that is, will everyone really make the effort to avoid ingredients like dairy if they don't stop and think about (or know) what dairy is in the first place? When I first decided to eat strictly vegan food, there were a few surprises to my l/o vegetarian consciousness, like whey in most loaves of bread. Would anyone who doesn't completely geek out on ingredients even equate a slice of bread with animal use, let alone think about whey as a dairy product? In the recent past, I was doing vegan education with working class folks that had mostly been through the prison system, grown up in extremely low income areas, some admitting to not even graduation high school. Would a majority of these folks ever make the connection unless they were 100% committed to veganism? How would that happen in any real-world sense?
I wish Roger were on ARZone so he could respond.
