The greatest positive change any human can take to avoid cruelty to animals, exploitation of both animals; land and people; great health benefits and low environmental footprint is to go VEGAN. #vegan #vegansa #vegansofig #compassion #cruelty #equality #health #rawvegan #raw #adventurer
Our intellectual capabilities do not make us superior beings, rather just different animals. The depths and speed a shark can swim, does not make it superior to the camouflaging and agility of an octopus, rather they are just different kinds of animal. To believe our intellectual capabilities grant us superiority above all organisms, is a mark of our poor understanding of nature and our selfish viewpoints. #praying #mantis #animals #vegansa #vegansofig #vegan #rawvegan #raw #adventurer #adventure #compassion #equality
Humans are animals, no better than any other animal. When we collectively realize we are just a different kind of animal, then we may begin the process of understanding and adopting total equality. #equality #speciesm #adventure #eagle #animals #vegansofig #vegansa #vegan #rawvegan #raw #backtonature
Our removal from nature leads us to believe we are separate and superior over other animals; separate and superior to other human races, cultures or status and ultimately separated from ourselves. #returntothewild #backtonature #civilisationsucks #nature #vegansa #vegansofig #raw #rawvegan #adventure #elephant #animals #africa #compassion
Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is--whether its victim is human or animal--we cannot expect things to be much better in this world... -- Rachel Carson #buffalo #animals #vegansa #vegansofig #adventure #compassion
We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity. -- Rachel Carson.
