Our Chapter

Book-DawnQuote-crop

"Hunger, Meat, and the Banality of Evil" --

provides a glimpse into some of the tangible ways in which meat is a form of overconsumption and waste that redistributes food away from the poor.

It connects hunger and meat as systems of oppression that normalize atrocities against people and animals—thus desensitizing individuals and society, and bolstering other forms of systemic violence and injustice.

On a more personal level, it provides a feel for the actual suffering of both people and animals. It highlights the human actions and intention that distinguish suffering from injustice... and harm from violence.
