I’m not trying to shove vegetables down anyone’s throat, but just exploring this option of us not needing to kill other sentient creatures for food or resources. It is not a judgement here, but with mass extinction of species and the husbandry of animals contributing more to environmental damage than ANY other factor on earth, perhaps it is worth looking at the alternatives with cold clear eyes.
“Meat cannot be obtained without injury to animals, and the slaughter of animals obstructs the way to Heaven..”
~ The Laws of Manu
“In the relations of humans with the animals, with the flowers, with all the objects of creation, there is a whole great ethic scarcely seen as yet.”
~ Victor Hugo (1802 – 1885)
“We manage to swallow flesh only because we do not think of the cruel and sinful thing that we do..”
~ Rabindranath Tagore
