Sobriety is metaphysically expensive,
but Compassion generates spiritual currency;
therefore remember that there is NO such thing as
cruelty-free eggs or cheese.
There is nothing compassionate about:
– the slavery of animal exploitation,
– the rape of forced bovine breeding that
is integral to the production of cheese,
– the murder of male chicks that the
industry sees as mere waste, or
– slaughter of the male children of dairy cows that
feeds the veal industry.
With every meal, we can choose compassion for:
– the animals
(for the exploitation of animal agriculture is slavery),
– the planet
(for the waste of animal agriculture burdens the
earth, air and sea),
(for animal agriculture takes water, grain and legumes out of
the mouths of humans), and
– for ourselves
(as the consumption of cheese, and eggs are the
leading causes of heart disease, stroke, cancer,
diabetes and hypertension).
