MVP #043 – Speciesism – Mark Phipps – Mocha Vegan Podcast

Think about how we treat 'others'

Let’s be bigger than other people

http://speciesismthemovie.com/

A note that this recording was made on Monday, January 5, 2015, the day I returned to work from a long holiday. At the end of the next day I was laid off, so I’ve had more than those days I mention in the beginning of the episode to spend with my family (just with less money…) – moving on.

The concept of ‘speciesism’ is that people are the most powerful species and discriminate and maintain control over all other species. Similar to racism and sexism, people have taken over the planet.

The animals really don’t have a chance anymore.

Factory farming is outside reasonable lines of how we should treat ANY other species.

There are horror movies that show this type of treatment towards other humans and it is a bad thing. 101 Dalmatians, a movie I watched early in life, didn’t encourage mistreatment of dogs. We don’t like people to cage up their pets or mistreat their family. Why would we condone mistreatment of the animals that were identified as our targeted food source?

Think about the implications and try to move in a positive direction. Consider vegan.

Thanks for listening.
