What would the world look like if we reversed the roles of non-human animals and humans? What if humans were treated in the same way that (farmed animals) other sentient beings are?
Why are animal beings so different from human beings? THEY'RE NOT! Are humans just animals at a different stage of evolution? Why do many feel it is okay for our species to subject much of the animal species to a tortuous existence?
Imagine our modern society with the roles of humans and animals reversed. What would it look like? How would it feel to be dominated by another species?
When we look back at the subjugation of women, judicial torture, the murder of heretics, imperial conquest and genocide, the first world war and the rise of fascism, and ask ourselves how people could have failed to see the horror of what they did. What madness of our times will revolt our descendants?
There are plenty to choose from. But one of them, I believe, will be the mass incarceration of animals, to enable us to eat their flesh or eggs or drink their milk. While we call ourselves animal lovers, and lavish kindness on our #dogs and #cats , we inflict brutal deprivations on billions of animals that are just as capable of suffering. The #hypocrisy is so rank that future generations will marvel at how we could have failed to see it.

“It is time we acknowledged that other animals are no more meant to be our possessions than are people with different colored skin, women, children, or any other living beings. They are individuals with feelings similar to ours, who value their lives, feel pain, fear death, and have a right to live free from oppression.
To the industry, they are known as production units. To the consumer, they are known as dairy, eggs, meat, wool, leather, test subjects, exhibits. To each other, they are known as mother, son, sister, friend. To themselves, they are simply what you and I are to ourselves: a self-aware, self-contained world of subjective experiences, feelings, fears, memories. Someone with the absolute certainty that his or her life is worth living.
WE KNOW THEM INTIMATELY
We know things about them that no one should ever know, or want to know, about a fellow being – the sight of their flayed bodies, the weight of their severed limbs, the taste of their burned, bone-punctured flesh, the charred crunch of their babies’ fractured ribs, the flavor of their spilled marrow, the relish of their scrambled ova, the pungent bite of their curdled breast milk, the feel of their children’s scalped skin against ours, the taste, texture and flavor of every aspect of their despair, degradation and defeat. We know every detail of what we have forced them to be – objects to consume and excrete. What we don’t know, what we don’t want to know, is who they are. Please take a moment to look at the animals whose lives and families are erased for our amusement, and do so with the moral courage and intellectual integrity to actually see them.
#whyvegan ? You already know the answer, now act on it.”
