VegInspiration. The End of Predatory Behavior ~ Dr. Will Tuttle

VegInspiration. The End of Predatory Behavior





http://www.athensparent.com/images/articles/immune.jpg

By confining and killing animals for food, we have brought violence into our bodies and minds and disturbed the physical, emotional, mental,

social, and spiritual dimensions of our selves in deep and intractable

ways. Our meals require us to eat like predators and thus to…

"Meat" and Climate Change ~ The Real Climate of Fear ~ Keith Mann

Violence is an essential ingredient of the flesh we eat. Really serious violence!

This is a given for most people whatever their political or moral stance.

Not everyone will admit it of course and some people will never see the

connection between flesh and murder but there’s no getting away from

the fact that for every beef burger, chicken nugget or bacon sarnie some

unfortunate creature was subjected to a violent…

VegInspiration. Tranforming Motivations ~ Dr. Will Tuttle

VegInspiration. Tranforming Motivations





We can transform this culture we live in, and which lives in us, by transforming our own motivations and exemplifying this to others. We

owe this to the animals. In the end, we are not separate from others,

and we each have a critical piece to the great puzzle of cultural

awakening to contribute, and our…

A Short Note on Abolitionist Veganism as a Single Issue Campaign ~ Gary L. Francione

Dear Colleagues:



Anyone who claims that ethical veganism, as it is represented in the abolitionist approach to animal rights, is a single-issue campaign understands neither abolitionist ethical veganism nor single-issue

campaigns (SICs).

Ethical veganism is the notion that we should not eat, wear, or use animals for human purposes. Ethical veganism reflects the view that we cannot distinguish among various types of animal exploitation for moral

purposes…

What Other Abolitionists Have Been Doing (2) ~ Mylène Ouellet ~ My Face is on Fire

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a long overdue list of some recent activities in which various abolitionists have been engaging. I'd meant to post a second part to it later that week, but got side-tracked, so I'm going to throw in a few things now, but will then stick to monthly updates.



So?



Prof. Gary L. Francione recently posted an excellent critique of HSUS' "Save a Seal Today" campaign on the Opposing Views website. The fundraising campaign calls for a boycott of… Continue

What Other Abolitionists Have Been Doing ~ Mylène Ouellet ~ My Face is on Fire

Save a Seal; Eat Non-Canadian Seafood ~ Gary L. Francione

Dear Colleagues;

In his Report from the Seal Slaughter: Special Chance to Help, HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle writes:

It’s a day I dread each year: the first blow or bullet landed against a baby seal off Canada’s East Coast. It marks the

beginning… Continue

Animal Rights and Domesticated Nonhumans ~ Gary Francione

One aspect of my theory of animal rights, as articulated in Introduction to Animal Rights: Your Child or the Dog? and other places,

that troubles some animal advocates, is that if we accept the rights

position, we ought not to bring any more domesticated nonhumans into

existence. I apply this not only to animals we use for food,

experiments, clothing, etc., but also to our nonhuman companions.



I can certainly understand that if you embrace the welfarist… Continue

On Veganism and Being Fully Human ~ Dan Cudahy



Those who accept speciesism often do so because they believe humans

“superior” on the basis of rationality and empathy, but in a terrible

twist of irony, reject all rationality and empathy in refusing to

acknowledge sentience as the morally relevant characteristic on which

to base inclusion in the moral community. In refusing to apply such

rationality and empathy, they behave far worse than the nonhuman

animals toward whom they… Continue

I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against; activists shouldn't hit people with pies ~~ Vincent J Guihan



"I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against." Malcolm X



I haven't read Lierre Kieth's book in its entirety and I can't say that I care that much about it. I know that she is an ex-vegan, and I wish it

were otherwise. But someone hit Keith in the face with pies (allegedly)

laced with cayenne pepper at a recent speaking… Continue

The World Peace Diet hits #1. Can we all please promote veganism now? ~ Vincent J Guihan



Will Tuttle’s The World Peace Diet hit number 1 yesterday on Amazon.com. Today, it’s number 11 (Amazon updates hourly), but still, this was a serious feat. I like to research questions to inform my views (and I like data as a general matter). So, I did some quick key word search at Amazon and at Google.



As I understand "best-seller", what that means is that for part of the day yesterday, Will’s… Continue

Euphoria? For Whom? ~~ Gary L. Francione

Dear Colleagues:



In my previous blog post, Partners in Exploitation, I discussed the various labeling schemes endorsed and promoted by HSUS, PETA, and other animal welfare corporations.



Well low and behold, yesterday, I went to the local Whole Foods Market, you know, the one to which PETA gave the Best Animal-Friendly Retailer award, and I picked up a copy of the Whole Foods magazine, “Whole Deal.”



And there was a coupon for “All Natural Brown Cow Parfaits,”… Continue
