'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated'

Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
"Animals have always played an important role in agriculture. Not only do they provide us with food and fiber, but they also help to recycle nutrients and add to soil fertility. Over recent decades, however, the farming of animals has become increasingly separated from its natural existence on the land." Read More...

We’ve been bamboozled long enough

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” - Carl Sagan

 Corporations will put the profit margin and will put making money from billionaires, over the lives and the quality of life of foreign citizens. And I don't think it's crazy for people to fight against that. In fact, you resemble the greatest amount of spirit that any American has ever had who fought for his rights and his dignity. It's ironic that here, in this country, the profit margin is put before people's lives, even in the food that we eat. GMOs (corporations) don't want their foods labeled. If you're so proud of it why don't you put your seal of approval on it? People are making too much money off this stage of evolution (capitalism), to stop and get off it and take us to the next level.
If we're still here in 100 years, then we've basically put the nail on the coffin for humanity, to the point where we can't speak about healthy food without being persecuted by the companies who sell food that is bad for you. They're making too much money selling processed stuff (that is going to be proven to give people cancer) in order to stop and be taken off the market."- Immortal Technique
