Journal Entry

mon 12 apr 2010

I did get some reading done over the weekend as well. Mostly because I wanted to buy some new books. Unfortunately, since I didn't really get anything done over the weekend, I didn't feel like a reward was deserved. darn it.

Speciesism by Joan Dunayer

So anyway. I had been reading Speciesism for the second time around. This is my favorite vegan/animal rights book.

I especially like the last few chapters. When most people are vegan, then we'll be able to pass laws giving personhood rights to animals. Animals should have the legal right to life, the right to liberty and the right to hold property. Yep.

That's what I would like to happen. And I do think -- or I would like to believe -- that humans are moving in that direction. In the direction of vegan-ness.

But I think that civilization will collapse long before the vegan people can make things right in the world.


Anyway. One of the books I wanted to buy was Joan Dunayer's other book, Animal Equality : Language and Liberation. Which I'm sure I will like just as much as the Speciesism book!
