Violence against humans and animals, wars, human right conflicts, veganism, nonviolence

Connection between our violence towards nonhuman animals, and the violence in human relations:
Domestication of animals and each non-vegan choice is violence, it is slavery, and it also has resulted in human slavery, oppression against women, and other forms of oppression that is rampant in our society.

I would also like to share these words about nonviolence:
"A commitment to nonviolence begins with not putting violence in and on your body. Go vegan." -- Gary L. Francione

If you are not vegan, please consider going vegan. It’s a matter of nonviolence. Being vegan is your statement that you reject violence to other sentient beings, to yourself, and to the environment, on which all sentient beings depend.”
― Gary L. Francione

"The most violent weapon on earth is the table fork." Gandhi

“I do feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.”

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.""
“Being vegan is easy. Are there social pressures that encourage you to continue to eat, wear, and use animal products? Of course there are. But in a patriarchal, racist, homophobic, and ableist society, there are social pressures to participate and engage in sexism, racism, homophobia, and ableism. At some point, you have to decide who you are and what matters morally to you. And once you decide that you regard victimizing vulnerable nonhumans is not morally acceptable, it is easy to go and stay vegan”
― Gary L. Francione
