Meat = Animal Cruelty

If you don’t like cruelty,
stop buying it.

***VeganVoices Book Suggestion***

The Modern Savage: Our Unthinking Decision to Eat Animals by James McWilliams pushes back against the questionable moral standards of a largely omnivorous world and explores the “alternative to the alternative”-not eating domesticated animals at all. McWilliams reveals the scope of the cruelty that takes place even on the smallest and-supposedly-most humane animal farms. In a world increasingly aware of animals’ intelligence and the range of their emotions, McWilliams advocates for the only truly moral, sustainable choice-a diet without meat, dairy, or other animal products.

Welcome

Greetings and thanks for stopping by. I’m Carl, a VeganDude. I’m 70 years-young and VeganVoices is my blog. I went vegan after my near-fatal car crash in 1993. I was forty at the time. The crash happened while I was going to work. It changed my life forever. Among other things, my near-death experience gave me a new appreciation of life, both human and nonhuman. I believe that all sentient beings have equal value and should be respected. Killing animals for food or any reason is not respecting life. VeganVoices for the animals. VeganVoices for the planet. VeganVoices for your health: mind, body, soul. Keep scrolling for more VeganVoices. ~CarlVeganDude70

The Buddha, The Vegan, and You: Part1: Meat, Myself and Irony by John Bussineau (paperback)

Amazon Book Description
In The Buddha, The Vegan and You: Part I, the author, a student and practitioner of Buddhism for eighteen years, shares how he changed his eating habits, improved his health, and lost weight by using various meditation practices. These meditation techniques, in conjunction with research, helped him to curb cravings and attachment to “standard American diet” foods. He reveals what it was like going from a heavy intake of animal products to a vegan diet. The book explores the role of eating meat, dairy, fish and eggs in relation to the five Buddhist Precepts on ethical behavior as well as myths and stories non-vegan and non-vegetarian Buddhists tell themselves sanctioning them to eat as they always have. These myths and stories are the same ones the author told himself, in many cases, but after careful reflection he found that his eating habits contradicted his Buddhist practice and training. The book concludes with a vegan perspective on the four powers, a Buddhist practice designed to transform ourselves and change our karma.

Every Twelve Seconds by Timothy Pachirat: Industrialized Slaughter and the Politics of Sight (Paperback)

Amazon Book Dsscription
This is an account of industrialized killing from a participant’s point of view. The author, political scientist Timothy Pachirat, was employed undercover for five months in a Great Plains slaughterhouse where 2,500 cattle were killed per day—one every twelve seconds. Working in the cooler as a liver hanger, in the chutes as a cattle driver, and on the kill floor as a food-safety quality-control worker, Pachirat experienced firsthand the realities of the work of killing in modern society. He uses those experiences to explore not only the slaughter industry but also how, as a society, we facilitate violent labor and hide away that which is too repugnant to contemplate.
