Advertisements aren’t inherently bad, however, they do use manipulative tactics that influence us in ways that we don’t even realise. Though we may think that we are in control of our decisions, we are not. In this compelling video, John Wildman discusses the ethics of how and what we eat and highlights the belief systems that we’ve created to sustain our desire for animal products. Why do you drink milk? Why do you eat meat? Is it because you want to, or because that’s what you have been taught to do? John Wildman explains how we have been conditioned to eat some animals and not others, he also encourages you to cut through the myriad of assumptions about how meat is grown and produced, providing plenty food for thought.
“How many of you were taught that you need to drink cow’s milk? Not even our own mother’s milk, but we need to drink cow’s milk to get strong bones. The absurdity of drinking the milk from any other species and any other being besides our own mother, when it is said enough times loses its absurdness.” – John Wildman
