It remains old news that the elimination of animal agriculture, factory farms and CAFOs can
(1) save the planet;
(2) solve the sickness/sick care/financial/pandemic crises;
(3) eradicate world hunger; and
(4) end unnecessary violence and suffering.
The issue is what to eat. For this reason, I will be making more videos about tasty, delicious, plant based food and easy recipes soon. (This year I have been preparing an exciting surprise project and searching for a working farm for the Rescue and Sanctuary…both coming soon!)
“Taken on the whole, I would believe that Gandhi‘s views
were the most enlightened of all the political men of our time.”
Albert Einstein, 1879-1955
“In my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.
The more helpless the creature, the more it is entitled to protection by man from the cruelty of man.”
Mahatma Gandhi, 1869-1948
“I want to realize brotherhood or identity not merely with the beings called human,
but I want to realize identity with all life, even with such things as crawl upon earth.”
“When I see a cow, it is not an animal to eat, it is a poem of pity for me and I worship it
and I shall defend its worship against the whole world.”
“Ethically they had arrived at the conclusion that man’s supremacy over lower animals meant not that
the former should prey upon the latter, but that the higher should protect the lower,
and that there should be mutual aid between the two as between man and man.
They had also brought out the truth that man eats not for enjoyment but to live.”
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission
can alter the course of history.”
“I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species.
We err in copying the lower animal world if we are superior to it.
I do feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage
that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.”
“How smart does a chimp have to be before killing him constitutes murder?”
Carl Sagan, 1934-1996
“Humans–who enslave, castrate, experiment on,
and fillet other animals–have had an understandable penchant
for pretending animals do not feel pain.
A sharp distinction between humans and ‘animals’ is essential if
we are to bend them to our will, make them work for us, wear them, eat them–
without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret.
It is unseemly of us,
who often behave so unfeelingly toward other animals,
to contend that only humans can suffer.
The behavior of other animals renders such pretensions specious.
They are just too much like us.”
“Of all the creatures, man is the most detestable.
Of the entire brood, he’s the one that possesses malice.
He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain.
The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures;
but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature that cannot.”
Mark Twain, 1835-1910
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine,
but will interest his patients in the care of the human body,
in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Thomas Edison, 1847-1965
