“This is a world of compensations; and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, cannot long retain it.”

Abraham Lincoln


Human nature… it just consists on destroying for its own happiness, even destroying other humans, it is a constant state of destruction, andhurt others by different ways, for example: slavery, just to make sure a comfortable life, with no efforts. It’s supposed that slavery was abolished long time ago, and now It is assumed that humans and every single being in the world are free, but it is not true, even maintaining this big lie , and with everyone talking about the intelligence of human beings, freedom and equality. But slaverystill exists thanks to human brutality and anthropocentrism. The animal’s situation isn’t the same of Negros when they were slaves? Animals are slaves, just our comfort and pleasure. Pleasures and luxuries such as skins, lab proofs for cosmetics and purses. ¡We eat them! We are still savages; we haven’t seen that animals also are intelligent, they have soul and feelings. Is from intelligentpeople to eat something that is murdered in the worst conditions?, when Gandhi and many other thinkers referred about freedom they referred to freedom for every single being on Earth, not only for the selfish and anthropocentric humanity.

Vegetarian food is very good for all things, example:

• If the human don’t eat animal meat, inside you’re better.

There are wonderful options to eating, without damaging your health. If you decide to eliminate meat for the diet, you avoid a lot of diseases like: cancer, heartinfarction and others such as poor digestion, bad smell in the mouth. The idea is live and let live. Animals also want to live like you, remember they have a nervous system, they feel pain and fear.

Maybe the problem is our culture, occidental cultures always eat meat, and use other animal products like leather and skins, but it’s right now that we have to make a decision for changing ourcostumes. Please “Don`t kill more.”


The Hare Krishna devotee Swami Prabhupada said: “animals are our younger brothers.”
