Michaela Österlund replied to Tim Gier's discussion European Union Bans Battery Cages for Egg-Laying Hens
"This is actually not doing anything for the chickens at all. Battery cages will be banned yes, but the "farmers" still have the choice to use "enriched" cages, which are almost the same as battery cages."

Michaela Österlund commented on Tim Gier's blog post Predators and Prey - Oscar Horta
"What if you give the fox the food and he just sniffs it and catches the rabbit anyway? But then again, since both the fox and the rabbit probably are scared of humans, just by being there you might have saved the rabbit. Or, the fox and the rabbit…"

For all of those vegans who are proud to not exploit and use animals for personal gain :)

Abolition Of Speciesism

We vegans, who believe in Animal Rights, depart from a moral framework based on sentience alone i.e. no one, human or nonhuman should be considered merely as a means to others' ends.

Will the world see peace is WE (a small percentage) just refrain from doing violence in OUR share of the space-time continuum?

During the 1960s and 1970s, faith communities that committed themselves to PEACE used terms from the Vietnam war (the War in Southeast Asia) and termed their buildings and communities 'a DMZ' - a demilitarized zone.

How effective are WE (by our not doing violence)?

How tempting it must be for those who want to have an impact to want to scale up their own use of power, rather than to back off. But 'escalation' of violence seems to make things much worse (or does it)? What is effective, and what did Mohandas K. Gandhi teach about Satyagraha? Is that morally and strategically TRUE, or is it not?

Feel free to friend me and connect with me.

One answer I've found and tried effectively over these years is community organizing, vegetarian (read vegan) community organizing. Bringing together they SYNERGIES makes HUGE differences in the qualitative transformations we can make happen, nonviolently.
