Hello everybody !
Today I wanted to write a different article from usual. It was raining outside, and I was on Youtube, watching videos, when I stumbled upon Melanie Joy’s TED Talk about carnism. It deals with the reason why we consider eating animals is a normal thing to do, basically. I strongly advise you to watch it, it is eye-opening, and only 20 minute-long or so.
I had already watch Gary Yourofsky’s best speech you’ll ever hear who argues in favor of veganism, and I already knew about all the arguments supported by vegetarians and vegans in favor of our health, the environment, and the animals. I have seen all the violent footages of slaughterhouses and animal killings. But I found that Melanie Joy’s speech brought something new to the table.
“To get mud off your hands, use soap and water. To get blood off your hands, go vegan.”
