VegInspiration. Love Animals ~~ Dr. Will Tuttle



“Love animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. Do not trouble their joy, don’t harass them, don’t deprive them of their happiness, don’t work against God’s intent.” – Fyodor

Dostoevsky

A Case For Direct Action

A CASE FOR DIRECT ACTION



A new civil war is unfolding--one between forces hell-bent on exploiting animals and the earth for profit whatever the toll, and activists steeled to resist this omnicide tooth and nail. We are witnessing not

Five fatal flaws of animal activism

Five fatal flaws of animal activism



From tacky nude posters to dubious concepts such as 'happy

meat', animal rights groups are losing the fight for real change




There are a few things that have kept me going, and kept me proud of

how I've been living over the decades. Pretty near… Continue

What the eff is a veg*n? Adults spell out their political views and so can animal advocates

What the eff is a veg*n? Adults spell out their political views and so can animal advocates





I still remember, not so fondly, the first time I ever heard the word 'veg*n' pronounced out loud by someone. It was years ago, and only now has the trauma subsided sufficiently that I can blog about it. I was on

a noisy, but relaxed, patio of… Continue

Poem by Douglas McNish

"why are animals so abused?

used as jackets, bracelets, and shoes

cosmetics, and food, and caged up in zoos

i think it should be done to you

kill furriers, rip off their heads

grate their skin, eat their flesh

break into a scientists lab

vivisect the fucker, stab em to death

slaughter your children like you slaughter veal

i show no pity cause its just a meal to me

i am smarter so its justified

follow your logic and kill your whole family

make them… Continue

Can anyone help me learn the difference between ALF and NAALPO?

i have been trying to uncover what their differences are - as i hear they are quite distinct from one another, but so far my investigations yield only that which confuses me further. :P

***i'm particularly interested in what their respective takes are on violence (toward humans) and direct action.***

muy thanks in advance for your help.

On Violence

On Violence



Dear Colleagues:



Unfortunately, there are people who identify themselves as animal advocates who claim that the solution to the problem of animal exploitation is violence.

Some of these people have actually engaged in acts of violence against institutional exploiters. Others incite acts of violence by calling on people to use “intimidation” against animal exploiters…

Here in this house ...



Here in this house... I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks

of the other dogs 'out there'. I can sleep soundly, assured that when I

wake my world will not have changed. I will never know hunger, or the fear of

not knowing if I'll eat. I will not shiver in the cold, or grow weary from

the heat. I will feel the sun's heat, and the rain's coolness, and be

allowed to smell all that can reach my nose. My fur…

The Traveler and His Dog

The Traveler and His Dog

(from Aesop's fables)





A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead...



He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them.



After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along… Continue

An answer to Temple Grandin by Jim Sinclair (also autistic)

If you love something, you don’t kill it.



I didn’t need to spend time in a squeeze box to learn that. Love is not killing. If you know what another being feels--not just how you feel when you touch it--then you know that living things want to remain alive. It doesn’t matter if they’re not afraid of death before they know what’s going to happen to them. In the moment when the killing happens, they know, and they want to stay alive. I have…

Will Tuttle: VegInspiration. Our Old Herding Culture



We may become irate that someone would even suggest that our mother’s loving meals and our father’s barbecues were a form of indoctrination. Our mother and father didn’t intend to indoctrinate us, just as their

parents didn’t intend to indoctrinate them. Nevertheless, our old

herding culture, primarily through the family and secondarily through

religious, educational,…

Effective Advocacy: Stealing from the Corporate Playbook by Bruce Friedrich, director of Vegan Campaigns

Effective Advocacy: Stealing from the Corporate Playbook

by Bruce Friedrich, director of Vegan Campaigns







I've been involved in social justice advocacy for more than 20 years. I spent six of those years running a homeless shelter and soup kitchen in Washington, D.C., before coming to work for PETA. If you are reading this, then you, too, must be concerned about making the world a better place.



Over the years, I've found that those of us who are concerned… Continue

Will Tuttle: VegInspiration. Field of Freedom





By recognizing and understanding the violence inherent in our culture’s meal rituals and consciously adopting a plant-based diet, becoming a voice for those who have no voice, we can attain greater compassion and

happiness and live more fully the truth of our interconnectedness with

all life. In this we fulfill the universal teachings…

Humane Meat: A Contradiction in Terms

People have become increasingly aware that virtually all of the 10 billion

land animals slaughtered in the U.S. each year for their meat, eggs and

milk are terribly mistreated. In fact, routine farming practices are so

abusive that they would warrant…
