The Vegalitarian Society
Are you a human supremacist?
Think about it. Most of us have been led to believe we are superior to other species. But are we?
To put our existence in perspective, evidence suggests that life on Earth has been around for approximately 3.7 billion years, yet our own species, Homo Sapiens, has existed for not more than about 200,000 years.
True, we are unique, but we surely aren't more unique than others. All creatures on earth, be they amoebas, humans, or whales, possess unique traits. None of these traits, however, are "better" or "best." Thinking otherwise inevitably leads to exploitation and abuse. As history has shown, most atrocities committed by humans correlate directly with the urge to feel superior, be it toward people of a different color, the other sex, or entire populations "different from us."
Feeling superior to non-human animals and nature itself, we risk not only destroying our environment, but putting our own species at risk of extinction.
Collaborating with prominent experts in diffusion methodology, marketing and social psychology, The Vegalitarian Society is setting in motion a sustained chain effect that in a significant way will cause positive changes across the world related to ethics, equality, health, the environment, poverty, hunger and justice. Specifically, the strategy involves the rapid diffusion of a vegan way of life for the entire population on earth.
A vegalitarian is a non-speciesist egalitarian; a person who advocates the right to a free and just life for all animals, humans and non-humans alike.
Speciesism, which like racism and sexism creates an artificial boundary between allegedly superior beings and the rest, leads to a mindset that seemingly legitimizes abuse. As evidenced, a world emanating from this frame of mind hurts both the oppressed and the oppressor.
By changing our attitudes toward all non-human animals we will help ourselves as much as we help them.
