Earthlings

Please see my sidebar to the right for a link to a film called 'Earthlings'. It was made in 2005 and is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix.

I urge you to watch it.

Watch it all the way through, especially if at some point you don't want to.

There are 3 stages to receiving truth:

1) Ridicule

2) Violent opposition

3) Acceptance

Whichever one you feel, at whichever stage of watching this film, know that you are reacting to the truth.

Carla, I watched that movie a year or 2 ago, and as hard as it was to bear I made myself watch it all, though I was in tears for much of it. I know my friends wouldn't watch it though - they don't want to know the truth because they'd have to make a change.

I did not cry during this film but I was very moved. It helped to know that I wasn't contributing. It hurt to know that so many people will turn a blind eye to this and just keep on eating meat, milk and eggs without restraint or thought. I was floored to learn that we eat more chickens in a single day in America than were consumed in an entire year in the 1930s. That is just sick.
