Descrizione - Every day we hear of life and death decisions made by our species which effect the lives of billions of other animals.
How arrogant and misguided we human animals are that we not only believe that we own this planet but we own every other animal who lives and breathes.
We have created a terrible imbalance in the natural world and sadly nonhumans pay for our greed each day.
The truth is our species is the "pest" on this planet and the sooner we realise this fact, the faster we can try to reverse this ever increasing disaster which is unfolding.
We are now in overshoot and collapse as a species.
We have become the nightmare and the executioner of billions of other animals.
We have the arrogance to kill other animals when we find them "inconvenient"
or we torture and kill themfor profit and pleasure.
The truth we deny is that using nonhumans is morally unjustifiable.
Sadly we are killing many nonhumans either directly or indirectly with our destructive and violent pathology.
If we truly want peace --- which sometimes one could seriously doubt ---
we need to stop using nonhuman animals for our pleasure
If we want peace, we need to create a vision of how we can co-exist peacefully; we need to cease using non-human sentient beings as property.
Many of our fundamental problems could be addressed if we took one fundamental step to peace and that step is to go vegan and end the last great slavery.
Furthermore, we need to keep our own breeding in check and stop breeding as if the planet has infinite space and infinite resources.
Our path to peace will commence when we wake from our speciesist supremacist delusion and realise we are all interconnected and realise we do not own the planet or any other species who dwells on it.
Speciesism is learned.
Time to unlearn it.
The Earth was recently speaking with a similar planet in another galaxy.
The other planet said, "How are you doing?"
Earth said, "I'm doing okay, except.
I have a very bad case of Homo sapiens."
The other planet said, "Oh, I had that about 200 million years ago.
Don't worry, it'll pass quickly."

Go vegan. It's easy. It's better for you, for the planet, and most importantly, it's the morally right thing to do.
