  1. Being vegan only means that one is consistent with the idea that «other animals also matter», instead of «disregarding and neglecting» them. But we have been conditioned to be speciesist. We have been conditioned to be «the POWER» (abuser), and all other animals are «The POPULACE» (the enablers). But animals are really vulnerable, they are like very young children, forgotten in the middle of our exploitative system: animal slavery in a nutshell. We can empower ourselves over our speciesist minds. Being vegan means one acknowledges and honors the individuality of those sentient beings who happen to be from a species different than ours. Who said they were less than us? One of us? Oh, what a surprise. When it comes to valuing our very own life, each one of us in its very own way, all individuals are equal. No two sentient beings are identical, or copies from the same mold. Each sentient being has a biology and a biography ? —————— Keywords: law of one ra channeling oneness narcissism victim abuser mentality mask elites conspiracy woke
  2. One of the most blatant and violent biases we are indoctrinated into is speciesism. We say we care about and love «animals», and we mean it, but our behavior shows us something different: it show us caring about and loving «what we can take out of them», disregarding their life, bodily integrity and freedom. Speciesism is a set of prejudices, a belief system, a group of dogmas, that assist us into maintaining the illusion that «animals which are not from the human species are worthless and useless, unless we humans think of them as pricey and useful». Speciesism is a big one. That's why it needs a lot of self-deception to pass inadverted. But speciesism is so blatant... Animal slavery, animal exploitation and the animal holocaust are just in front of our eyes. We have been just trained to dismiss it as normal. Check your radar. Some people advocate that animals ought to be defended by rights, just as us, human animals. Do animals deserve the right to vote? We might get a better set of politicians... By Animal Rights we are referring only to one right: the right, for any «individual», regardless of species, to not be the property of another, to not be enslaved. That simple. It not only suits humans, but any sentient being. Any sentient beings deserves to be protected from the excessive freedom of other individuals. With our power, we engaged into commodifying sentient beings. With our power, we engaged into commodifying sentient beings. With our power, we can stop engaging in these behaviors. With our power, we can restore the condition of other animals from an «object with life» to a «subject of a life». Vegans don't use any individual as a resource or commodity for food, clothing, entertainment, work, or for any other human purpose. Vegans think that animals exist and are here for their own purposes. As you. As me. It happens that we were just told the opposite by those who we trusted the most. Veganism is Animal Rights put into practice, set into action. Either we are vegan, or we remain nonvegan, mentally and physically engaging in the systematic enslavement and exploitation imposed on other individuals, for our own pleasure and convenience. There's no third choice for the one ?
  3. How to develop and cultivate empathy for animals in a conscious way: Imagine being born as a sentient being from a species different from human. With other abilities, with other concerns, with another identity. See yourself interacting with what surrounds you. Feel the interest in what gives you pleasure. See the fear towards what surprises you. See your innocence in front of the human presence in this world. See yourself being trapped by them. You are an enslaved animal now. What's the purpose of your enslavement? Are you in a zoo? Being used as a clown, so other animals in tuxedos can laugh at you? You don't really understand what's going on around you, but you cannot go where you want. You cannot be who you are. You are given some food whenever you make what they expect you to do. You are capable of understanding this. You have learned to respond to get the food that you want. You are not allowed to underperform, or to not perform. This is a business. It is said that human infants are told that you love your owner. And that's why adults belief that too. Does your enslaver love you? Or does your enslaver love whatever s/he can take out of you? Or maybe you are in a farm. An organic, familiar farm? An industrial, unmodernized factory farm? It's the same, you are enslaved. It only changes the colour palette in front of you, and the amount of suffering you are forced to endure. You are a slave. And some people amongst those humans are claiming that you should never be enslaved. These are called ARAs, Animal Rights Advocates, and are vegan. And some other claim that the problem is not that you are a property, but the tones of red in the color palette, absolutely neglecting, disregarding and ignoring the slavery part. These are called welfarists, and are well intended, though. But you don't understand what slavery is. You only know that something is forcing or guiding you. You cannot be the one who you are. You are forced to be a something. Now, time to see yourself from the outside. The (economic) value of your experience of life, your body and your effort is decided by your owner. You can be sold, harmed, confined and terminated if that is what suits your owner. You don't understand what an owner is. They just feed you, and you are grateful when this happens. Then they trick you, and you find yourself in line, standing on a wet floor in a noisy slaughterhouse. There's demand outhere for your flesh, your secretions, your skin, your bones and your fluids: that's the something you are being forced to be. You, as the One, reading this and hallucinating to be dressed as an animal: if you wanted to be yourself, and not to be continuously forced to be something else, how would you tell this to humans? how could they understand what you are trying to say? how could they just listen to you? how could they pay attention to you? if you could develop or sketch a rough religion, how would humans be depicted? what are we, human animals, doing to other animals? why are we still hallucinating that we own them as properties? "Part" of Oneness is trying hard. Please, go consciously vegan. I acknowledge the power of these words. I acknowledge the opening power of our minds and hearts. Thank you for your attention.

  4. This is a short documentary on Animal Rights and their relationship with veganism. The site Ethical Vegan Education and its Youtube channel exist in an attempt to provide free, nonviolent vegan education to those people interested in learning about the foundation of Animal Rights. Animals don't belong to us. Or do they? Property is an hallucination. Nonveganism means normalized slavery, based on hatred and violence towards animals.
  5. By the way, there's no such thing as a 99% vegan. Anything less than veganism is unnecessary violence towards animals. Vegetarianism is still 100.00% nonveganism. Nonveganism is hatred and violence towards animals, which cannot be labeled as Nonviolence. There's no point in saying that something is 1% in favor of animal slavery. It's just another nonvegan nonsense in an attempt to justify animal exploitation. Nonveganism is basically self-deception. Why don't we stop distracting us and start unlearning speciesism? Here it is a short talk on the question: Should animals have any right?

  6. Hi! I think that veganism is not (only) about eating plants in a balanced way, although the vast majority of conversations around the topic are usually related to it. I think it is important to always make the statement that veganism is, fundamentally, the voluntary cease of hatred and violence towards animals. Nothing less. Nothing more. Every time a nonvegan argues against veganism, he must know that he is arguing in favor of the unnecessary enslavement and murder of animals for the solely purpose os satisfying our cravings for taste, fashion and entertainment. We were deeply trained to do so. Why would otherwise intelligent people, with genuine good intentions and compassionate hearts, maintain and defend a rather harsh and violent position against the most vulnerable beings on Earth? Were we taught to be blind towards the violence we unnecessarily inflict on other animals? Were we taught to express our hatred towards animals in a passive-aggressive way? Of course. This should not surprise anybody in this forum. We were indoctrinated into a belief system called speciesism. It is because of this belief system that we feel that: enslaving, harming and murdering a human animal (for it being useful for our pleasure, taste, enjoyment or fun) is radically wrong enslaving, harming and murdering a nonhuman animal (for it being useful for our pleasure, taste, enjoyment or fun) is just ok. Nevermind! Bottomline: Being violent towards a human being is always wrong. Slavery is violence. Slavery is wrong. Always. No negotiable. Regardless of treatment. Being violent towards an animal is wrong, but only if the violence is too obvious and there's not a good amount of humans benefitting from it. Have you noticed? It is wrong to harm and kill one puppy in the microwave to entertain ourselves, even if we later eat the rest of it. The whole nonvegan planet gets enraged. But harming and killing billions of pigs in a gas chamber to entertain our taste is magically just fine. "Just make sure you have one of those humane treatment labels and stickers. We love animals, don't forget. We. We. We." Don't you think that this could be a double standard messing around with the way we see others? If so, it needs to be explored with self honesty. Integrity is at stakes in this territory. Here we have the core of Narcissism, usually referred to as anthropocentrism. "We humans own the Universe and everything which is in it". Ownership can be a very violent hallucination, don't you think? Most nonsense argued by (still) nonvegans to justify animal slavery and the animal holocaust comes from this unresolved confusion regarding what Nonviolence is. Being omnivore only means that we can digest the flesh of other animals, including the flesh of other humans. Does our ability to digest the flesh of other humans mean that it is ok to consider (only the most delicious, of course) humans as commodities, living objects whose whole purpose is to be used as resources for food? Of course not. The same with animals. No double standards if we are serious. Leo Gura still being nonvegan only means that speciesism can survive in our minds, as any other form of hatred, even if they are filled with high levels of theoretical and empirical knowledge about "Love" and "Nonviolence". Don't relay on a guru, no matter how powerful she is, to tell you what's wrong and what's right. That answer can only be found where the sound ceases to exist. TIP: remember that there's no such thing as "nonviolent violence", or "humane slavery", or "compassionate holocaust", or "considerate exploitation". Please, don't believe anything I have written. Expect me to be just someone messing around with your mind. By the way, it is the One who reads these words who needs to awaken from the speciesist dream. Animals don't belong to humans ?
  7. You don't know me. But I know something about the creature you believe yourself to be: I know that you don't need permission from Source, or permission from the Universe, or permission from a powerful spiritual guide and master, or permission from the global or local authorities, or permission from your most intimate friends, or permission from your family, or permission from your current partner or ex-partner to decide to go vegan. Although you may rely on their assistance if needed. You are such a Powerful creature that you can decide to express, at this very moment, that You Exist Here and Now for Nonviolence, to avoid perpetuating more violence towards animals. And... And that's it. Here's what to expect from the decision to go vegan. It's not about loud and colorful fireworks, but simply: — "No, no, nooo! No more enslavemeeent!! No, no, nooo!" ??? ————————————— In order to provide some content that I believe can be helpful to start unlearning speciesism, I would like to invite you to listen to Tom Regan introduce to us the question: Do animals have any rights? There's an interesting interview after Tom's presentation. ? — [ T H E C A S E F O R A N I M A L R I G H T S ] Reading the prologue of Tom's book Empty Cages, "The cat" 0:12:30 The common core of compassion we share and the three types of ARA: the Da Vincians, the Damascans and the Muddlers 0:17:20 How does one answer to the question "Do animals deserve any right?" — The invitation of philosophy: to think for yourself, without fooling yourself 0:27:47 Legal rights and moral rights — A right is a protection against the intrusion and excessive freedom of others 0:30:34 But, do animals have rights?
