"What is the point of progress into the future if the food is tasteless, the housing absurd, the work boring, and the earth clobbered with concrete? Towards what is progress? In fact, what on Earth are we doing? No one has even the ghost of a notion. Save perhaps a few simple-minded people who live in the present to smell flowers, listen to the sea, watch trees in the wind, & cuddle with a lovely human."

The price of milk!

The mother cow tries to follow the truck that takes her baby.  How can anyone know about this kind of thing and continue to support the meat and dairy industry?  This video is under two minutes long - please share it with friends.

This isn’t graphic at all, so I encourage anyone who eats dairy to watch it.

so sad and heartbreaking. stop consuming dairy.

there are few things I hate more than the dairy industry. and please, before you butt in with a “not all farms” or “but my uncle raises his cows and treats them with love”  or “but calves can’t drink ALL of the milk so we just take what is left over” - okay, no. the fact of the matter is that you are drinking and using something that is not, and was never meant for you. you are going to ANOTHER SPECIES for nutrients and textures that can be readily found in plants and replicated through plant based sources. there is no excuse for this. I don’t care if you grew up on a farm and brushed your cows and put them to bed, or if you only go to a trusted farmer to get your raw milk, or if you still think that milk is “the perfect food” or “you need it for calcium” - (it’s not. and you don’t.) please, please, please, just stop taking what is not yours. nature took care of this problem LONG before we humans decided to domesticate cows (they’re only this gentle because we domesticated them, of course) and start using their milk.

it was never meant for us. ditch dairy.

not your mom. not your milk.

Earth lost 50% of its wildlife in the past 40 years, says WWF
Species across land, rivers and seas decimated as humans kill for food in unsustainable numbers and destroy habitats 
“This damage is not inevitable but a consequence of the way we choose to live.
The fastest decline among the animal populations were found in freshwater ecosystems, where numbers have plummeted by 75% and the number of animals living on the land has fallen by 40% since 1970.

Marine animal populations have also fallen by 40% overall, with turtles suffering in particular.
The biggest declines in animal numbers have been seen in low-income, developing nations, while conservation efforts in rich nations have seen small improvements overall. But the big declines in wildlife in rich nations had already occurred long before the new report’s baseline year of 1970 – the last wolf in the UK was shot in 1680.
Also, by importing food and other goods produced via habitat destruction in developing nations, rich nations are “outsourcing” wildlife decline to those countries. For example, a third of all the products of deforestation such as timber, beef and soya were exported to the EU between 1990 and 2008.
 The scale of the destruction highlighted in this report should be a wake-up call for us all.”

I’m uninterested in the reasons why you “cannot stop eating meat” I do not care goodbye

konagrown:

it is so wild to me that vegans are seen as extremists. eating fruits n vegetables is extreme? no child, eating a dead animal is extreme!!!! consuming muscles, organs, and secretions is far out in a very bad way. this is BIZARRE behavior dudes.

Why love one and eat the other? Don’t be a speciesist.
