What exactly happened to Warwak and his teaching job?

What exactly happened to Warwak and his teaching job?

For those unfamiliar with my case, this is as much of a condensed version as I can make of my struggle not to be complicit in the lie:

I was an art teacher at Fox River Grove Middle School in Illinois for eight years until I started incorporating veganism in my lessons. My principal, Tim Mahaffy told me to stop doing work with animals in my art lessons. I said I… Continue

The Starfish Story (thanks Laura)

adapted from The Star Thrower

by Loren Eiseley

1907 - 1977

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he… Continue

VegInspiration. Spiritual Evolution - Dr. Will Tuttle

Learning to look the other way brings spiritual death in everyone who practices it. In encouraging it, religious institutions show how far they have strayed from the passionate mercy and all-seeing kindness taught and lived by those whose spiritual evolution and illumination inspired the institutions themselves.

The Answers Should Be Clear - Gary. L. Francione

Dear Colleagues:

In Ingrid Newkirk’s attempt to deal with Victor Schonfeld’s powerful essay, Five Fatal Flaws of Animal Activism, Newkirk tried to defend welfare reform in the folowing way:

For those who decry gradualism, the practical philosopher Peter Singer would ask, “Would you prefer to live in the horror you’re in, bred to grow seven times more quickly than natural so that your bones splinter and your organs collapse, or would you prefer to be able to live without… Continue

VegInspiration. Transform & Awaken - Dr. Will Tuttle

Every one of us, as representatives of our culture, is an essential part of the fundamental transformation and awakening. It is exciting to contemplate educational, economic, governmental, religious, medical, and other institutions based on honoring and protecting the rights and interests of both animals and humans. When as a culture we stop commodifying creatures, a new world of kindness, fairness, cooperation, peace, and freedom will naturally… Continue

An interesting blog post by Dave Warwak ...

Some people were raised on violence and only know violence as an answer

Opening cages is way cool. Life matters to that animal for sure no matter what the law says. I have rescued animals here and there so I can write of such things.

Burning down buildings is not cool. Vandalism is a waste of valuable time that could be spent actually helping animals. Corpse-munching industries will only rebuild bigger, newer, faster killing machines with the insurance… Continue

Veganism in a Nutshell' By Bruce Friedrich

Veganism in a Nutshell' By Bruce Friedrich

"Let's face it: animals suffer and they die, just like we do. They are made of the same stuff that we are. Eating them is an act of gluttony and disregard for our own health, it is an act of disregard for the environment and for the global poor, and most of all, it is an act of disregard for our fellow animals."

-- Bruce Friedrich

With "Veganism in a Nutshell," a 67-minute recording, available on CD or cassette, by Bruce… Continue

VegInspiration. Evolve Spiritually to Discover - Dr. Will Tuttle

Perhaps in the past people thought they needed to enslave animals and people to survive, and that the cruelty involved in it was somehow allowed them. It’s obviously not necessary for us today, as we can plainly see by walking into any grocery store, and the sooner we can awaken from the thrall of the obsolete mythos that we are predatory by nature, the sooner we’ll be able to evolve spiritually and discover and fulfill our purpose on this… Continue

VegInspiration. Chronic Malnutrition - Dr Will Tuttle

Everyone on earth could be fed easily, because we currently grow more than enough grain to feed ten billion people; our current practice of feeding this grain to untold billions of animals, and eating them, forces over a billion of us to endure chronic malnutrition and starvation while another billion suffer from the obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer linked with eating diets high in animal foods.…

A bloody mob of hypocrites

from Paul Sheehan, SMH, October 2009

Eight nights ago Channel Nine's 60 Minutes ran a blood-curdling story about the herding and slaughter of dolphins near the Japanese fishing town of Taiji, describing what it called the ''Dante's inferno'' for dolphins. It was harrowing. It was also a classic case of Australians in glass houses.

The reporter Liam Bartlett confronted a hapless official in the local council offices… Continue
