Fighting for animal liberation and an end to speciesism

VegInspiration. A Primary Symbol ~ Dr. Will Tuttle

Food is not only a fundamental necessity; it is also a primary symbol in the shared inner life of every human culture, including our own. It is not hard to see that food is a source and metaphor of life,
love, generosity, celebration, pleasure, reassurance, acquisition, and
consumption. And yet it is also, ironically, a source and metaphor of
control, domination, cruelty, and death, for we often kill to eat.
Every day, from the cradle to the grave, we all make food choices, or
they are made for us. The quality of awareness from which these
inevitable food choices arise—and whether we are making them ourselves
or they are being made for us—greatly influences our ability to make
connections. This ability to make meaningful connections determines
whether we are and become lovers and protectors of life or unwitting
perpetrators of cruelty and death.
