Transcript of Animal, Vegetable, Miserable

Author is a strict vegan for 15 years, and a vegetarian for 15 years before that.
Abusing and slaughtering animals and we “just don’t care”
A really strict vegan looks at EVERYTHING from food to bandages
Animals are suffering and not living long due to the fact we are blind enough to not see that they are being abused by us.
Not only we kill animals for our “consumption,” however, for “outright murder”
To show and describe how people misinterpret of the way we use animals for our happiness.
Humans should “reevaluate” how we mistreat and kill animals for our behave.
Humans don’t care how the animals are suffering for our consumption.
Get the word out there, and treat animals better; overall BE A VEGAN!

Convert non-vegans to be Vegans
Show the point of view that ethical vegans see the world through
To give voice to the issue of animals being slaughtered world wide
The suffering of animals is comparable to that of humans
Animals do not deserve to be murdered for our consumption just because we feel we are a cognitively superior species.

Why do we still do it?
Split into groups
