Melanie Joy - Carnism: The Psychology of Eating Meat (an inspiring video)

Please start watching this video any time until Sunday March 31.

Let's watch her video (1 hour) at home and educate ourselves.

Attendees are required to write a comment after watching it.

I found this video in Facebook and a guy who had watched this video a year ago became a vegetarian a few days later!  So I am interested in it (I haven't watched it yet).

Since I couldn't attend her conference here in Paris last December, this video might be a great alternative for me.

*I may watch it 30 minutes x 2 times (1 hour is too long for me).

Conférence "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows"

This meetup is a joint one with The Paris Vegan Meetup Group.

    I watched it this afternoon and found it very interesting. I guess it needs time to get people think about this topic.
    One main issue that was not raised is that UNFORTUNATELY many people still love the taste of meat too much to consider stopping eating it. They might prefer ignoring the issues in this video rather than giving up on this taste. On a physiological level, it may also be hard for omnivores to stop eating meat, same as it may be hard for smokers to stop cigarettes.
    Social issues are also important. Eating meat is easier that being vegetarian when it comes to socializing.
    Time to cook tofu now...

      i agree with your comments Eric. Exploitation has been too common for self interests. Many people are used to it and are continuing to be used to it!
