Most recently, there has been a campaign spreading through social media for people to fast today in memory of the tens of billions of animals killed ever year. Although this is certainly noble, the question must be asked: Is that the best we can do? Will this actually help? My feeling is it won’t have as much impact as people assume. Simply because the powerful corporations that run this world will continue pushing for more and more animal agriculture and one day of lower sales is not going to halt that momentum.
So I propose we do more than just fast, which is essentially inaction. Why not support causes like Food for Life and Juliana’s Animal Sanctuary that are taking action to change the way people eat and think about food. Here is your check list today. The more ticks you add here the greater your actions will be today in creating the peaceful world men like Gandhi and Tolstoy dreamed about.
