I generally am not, or have been critical of what others do and I am a vegan. I have been a vegan since 2009. All I ask for those who are not
vegetarian or vegan to please show the animals a bit more respect. If you are going to eat them at least don’t be blissfully ignorant/apathetic to
how the majority are treated in industrialized nations. See the videos; we are not trying to convince you of anything. The animals at least deserve
some awareness for all the pain and suffering they endure. Right?
Here’s a link
for the top 50 comments from
non-vegans and the responses to them.
I’ll leave you with some words from intelligent people on this subject:
“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." - Albert
“The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents
combined. If beef is your idea of "real food for real people" you'd better live real close to a real good hospital."
- Neal Barnard, M.D.
“I wonder both by what accident and in what state of soul or mind the first man abstained from flesh, touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips
to the flesh of a dead creature, he who set forth tables of dead, stale bodies and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little
before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb?
How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with the sores of others and
sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds? We slaughter harmless, tame creatures without stings or teeth to harm us, creatures that Nature appears
to have produced for the sake of their beauty and grace. But nothing abashed us not the flower-like like tinting of the flesh, not the persuasiveness
of the harmonious voice, not the cleanliness of their habits or the unusual intelligence that may be found in the poor wretches. No, for the sake of a
little flesh we deprive them of sun, of light, of the duration of life to which they are entitled by birth and being.” –Plutarch
“The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.”
“For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other, he who seeks the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love" -Pythagoras
