Ponderables 2: Exploring Veganism

A few excerpts from the thought provoking book,  Radical Vegetarianism: A Dialectic of Diet and Ethic by Mark Mathew Braunstein:

“Nature is undeniably cruel and life unmentionably cheap, but one way we can rise above life is by not taking it.”

“One way to make ends meet is to make meat end.”

“Few eaters of flesh want to know that animals live and die painfully, or that they die at all; in fact few seem to know animals even live.”

“Delegating the slaughter to someone else, and consuming the animal only after it has been several days dead, human carnivores ally themselves not with the animal kingdom’s predators, but with its scavengers.”

“Those defrauded by Western nutrition the first half of their lives are destined to be victimized by Western medicine the second half.”

“The steer is rare that is allowed to live longer than two of its potential twenty-two years of life, so a karmic debt of those fifteen to twenty unlived years of a steer life is accumulated.”
