I believe compassion is one of our most powerful human virtues. And I believe the vast majority of human beings are compassionate. That is why VEGANISM will one day prevail. Eating meat is unhealthy and it's acting against our core human values, in fact numbing them. Let me tell you a quick story...
When I first went vegan, I happened to be visiting my parents and my mom had cooked a meal with eggs prior to my arrival. I took one bite and realized that what I was eating wasn't vegan and explained to her that eggs aren't vegan. My mother was angry and hurt that I wouldn't finish her meal. I tried telling her about the baby chicks being ground up alive in the industry but it just didn't click in her brain. Less than an hour later, we watched our pet cat prowling through our back yard bushes and my mom chased after her and managed to catch her right before she grabbed a baby rabbit from a litter that had been born earlier that week. I asked her why she wanted to save the rabbit since it's a cat's natural instinct to hunt. She sad the cat managed to already kill one other baby the day before and she didn't want her unnecessarily killing a completely innocent and defenseless animal!
Reversing a lifetime of cognitive dissonance is challenging. But eventually, many of us take the blinders off, watch Earthlings, Cowspiracy or Forks Over Knives (or one of the many newer documentaries on veganism out there) and start to challenge our world views.
