Why Do We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows

Because humans have learned to disconnect themselves from their cruel and selfish behaviors as a coping mechanism. Even I was like this...when I look back on my pregan life it's like watching someone living under dark water or floating through a foggy dream.

How can we most affect change to reduce the suffering of animals?

We need to (gently and compassionately) educate others about the suffering of our fellow living beings. I don't believe any human wants to see any other living creature suffer, but it's so easy to put on those blinders and look the other way instead of taking responsibility. We're all responsible for creating our world and the minute we take responsibility for and own a problem is the minute we can begin to come up with solutions to that problem. If not you, who? If not now, when?

Introduction

Just moved to VT and interested in forging connections with other vegs/compassionate folk :)
