Vivisection Is A Social Evil (Book) - 5/4/2011 11:20:00 AM|
I'm against it; in every case there is a non-violent alternative that often is not chosen because they don't "see it as convenient." I also try to live in every way and in every purchase "cruelty free" - when i see a product or food is a cause of violence I shun it or find an alternative...including vitamins, personal hygeine items that do not use animal products or tested on them.
Glad to see you are writing with "social relevance" and uplifting our society's conscience.
best regards, michael

Linden, it's an almost impossible task you are setting for meat eaters to follow, it's not nourishment that claims the life of these poor creatures, but aquired taste, cultivated since mommies first spoonful. You'd have to change the habits from the baby stage on, and that proves difficult, unless all mothers would see the light, and change. Being a vegan is being certainly more compassionate, be it we don't find out that plants perceive their mistreatment at human hands. I am a great believer in the 'Fijian tradition of hunting and eating longpig, there are enough stock to feed the rest of the world, with deminishing results, a perfect scenario, would'nt you think; it would certainly in time, eradicate the plight we've become to this planet; I shall do my part and send your efforts on to my friends, with appreciation, and hugs!

Would we not honour more, to heal their wounds, their sore, would it not, the cries that were, we, with "all" that died would share?
Until then, the Poppy red, would have it's say,
in Flanders Field I beg it stay,
to honour all that gave their life's
where still it by the millions thrives. Hugs.

I chose a vegetarian lifestyle, not only for the health that is God given in Genesis chapter 1, but also to avoid what must be the horror of modern slaughterhouses. Yet after 30 years, I come as all of us have to see how even the most seemingly benign lifestyles are wrecking death on our world and that precious animal world first. Just driving and choosing the cars we drive brings death and destruction. While not yet a "Jain" your inclusion of the example of the Nazi Death Camps and the local populace's way of dealing with it brings an analogy to mind of how we perceive our complicity in modern fossil-fuel driven technology. "They" (the WW II) populace living around the Death camps, like we today, can't help but "know" what we are unleashing; we all sometimes cope by denial but it will do no good. I like the choice of the best example of how God would have us live. Like Jesus, the Indian Holy man sets an example y showing that living God's word (as Jesus did), and not preaching while doing otherwise, brings a unifying response from life and all of Nature.
We all must do better in addressing "cruelty" in our lifestyles and just how it can never be condoned by God, however you worship Him, he is life. Spirit and Nature are One.
Thanks for a great article filled with examples of "How to Live"

My God Linden, I am getting ready to go on a protest for lab animals, Sue is picking me up any moment, but I had to read this, and yes, it was so worthwhile, just to see that there are many more HUMANS with feelings in the right place. I can't thank you enough for this article, I have been much distrought by an accumulation of such sad stories, right around here. It is interesting that I call those that do these terrible things Nazis, as does your friend.
God bless you!!!!!!!!!! Hugs! Jasmin Horst.
