2017: May It Be Everything You Wish It To Be

I share some thoughts on what we can do as a species to make the lives of our own species and that of others better.  I speak generally about the problems that arise from trying to block issues from our minds, and how we can open ourselves up to ideas and how we can envision and create a better world by questioning what we have been told, how we are living, and the systems we are living within, and by caring about all sentient beings.

The Language of Justice, The Misuse of Compassion

In episode 49, I discuss domestication, and share my personal experiences and I share some thoughts of terms like “compassion” and “Kindness” in relation to vegan education and whether they are appropriate or not. I touch on some other issues and tie them in to one another. I hope you find it interesting.

Thanks for listening.
Till next time.

Turning Despair into Action

“Defenceless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages:
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.”
September 1, 1939
W. H. Auden (1907 – 1973)

Atomic bomb tests at Maralinga Australia. Australian soldiers can be seen observing. There were indigenous communities who were forceably relocated and those who also suffered radiation poisoning and still to this day have not been compensated.

And You Didn’t Worry

dont-worry-darling-wwiii

It’s been a busy Spring, so episodes have been a little infrequent. 🙂 In this episode, I discuss our moral compartmentalisation not only toward nonhuman animals, but also to human animals and that human and nonhuman issues are inextricably entwined.  I give examples.

Apologies for some technical glitches in the audio during this episode.
