It’s time we exercised some compassion – we have become pretty sufficient at being passionate just about everything. Passionate about food, cooking, design, music our jobs and the list goes on.
Now it is time to be COMPASSIONATE and exercise compassion-ism! Compassionism is the practice of compassion for ‘all living things’ as opposed to species-ism, a term which was coined in the mid 70 ties to describe ‘the idea that being human is a good enough reason for human animals to have greater moral rights than non-human animals’. On what basis? And why do we eat some and not other animals?
Did you know that, every year 65 billion animals are raised and slaughtered for their meat. That’s nine animals for every person on Earth.
