HUMANS ARE ANIMALS.
THE HIERARCHY IS ONLY A HUMAN CONCEPT. A CEREBRAL CORTEX SHOULD MAKE US MORE THOUGHTFUL; NOT SIMPLY MAKE US MORE IMPORTANT.
Question authority. Question your allegiances. Shoot the SHIT that is all around you.
It is now time to question your value systems. If you consider yourself compassionate, it may be time to revisit the definition:
Compassion |kəmˈpa sh ən|:
noun, “Sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others: the victims should be treated with compassion. See note at mercy.”
So I decided to dig deeper, and to put mercy here as well:
noun ( pl. -cies) “Compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm : the boy was screaming and begging for mercy.”
Funny thing; when I looked up these two words, I didn’t see ONE mention of “others” or “someone” indicating only HUMANS.
Violence will never cease to exist as long as we consider it acceptable to be violent to other species. It is pointless to discuss campaigns of non violence toward humans, when we are brutal to the most innocent of beings who depend on us, who cannot defend themselves, and who cannot scream NO in the human language. Putting an end to all violence begins with the weakest, and those at our mercy. Needless acts of violence are committed daily (numbering over 25 Million per day) against non human animals for human vanity, needless human gluttony, needless research and needless testing which saves no human lives; whilst giving up eating animal carcasses and other animals’ babies’ milk could spare billions of non human animals a life of misery and murder, and would spare many human animals a life of suffering and premature death.
I am a nurse practitioner, I have a master’s degree in nursing, and I am a man who cares deeply and passionately about peace and justice, and try to live by these principles in all aspects of my life. I have studied women’s issues, and consider myself to lean more toward the feminist state of mind than the patriarchal. I cannot control if I step on a bug, or if a bird hits my windshield, but I can make the ethical choice to not support the breeding, enslavement, rape, abuse, torture, and murder of billions of animals. I have zero tolerance for know it alls, human-centrism, apathy, ego-manics, selfishness, mega-consumers, bullies, laziness, excuse makers, denial, religious fanatics, people who care only about issues that directly pertain to their own lives, talk without action, talk without knowledge, or violence. (especially toward those who cannot defend themselves) Choosing to take the life of another is murder. It is my wish that individuals and institutions who play “god” all be imprisoned permanently. I think about how my existence and choices impact others and the planet. I practice what I preach. I will help anyone who asks. ALL beings are precious to me.
SPECIESISM – “A prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one’s own species and against those of members of other species.” – Peter Singer
If an “angry vegan” is enough of a reason for you to reject veganism, is it safe for me to assume that an “angry anti-war activist” would make you PRO war? Would an “angry anti-pedophilia” campaign director make you PRO pedophilia? Would an “angry anti-rape campaigner upset you to the point that you would be PRO rape? Would an “angry anti violence” activist make you LIKE violence? Then I have to assume that your continued decision to choose cruelty over compassion is because YOU are a cruel person. Veganism is NOT about vegans; never has been; and NEVER will be. (Paraphrased from Davegan. Thank you to him)
Human centrism, or speciesism, will cause the destruction of our species and others, and the planet on which we live. Other creatures have just as much right to be on this planet as humans, but are losing the battle for space because, like in everything else, humans are UNABLE to control themselves. It’s time to think before we continue making so many humans that there is NO room for other animals. I will never advocate for all other creatures on this planet to live in human designed reservations or zoos because they cannot live in their own natural habitat due to HUMAN OVERPOPULATION. Loving all beings as I do, I want all creatures great and small to live a healthy and happy life, and to have opportunity. This is impossible if human animals continue procreating without thinking of the repercussions. Right now we are destroying the planet. This planet is FINITE. Take responsibility for your actions.
I want to share information with people that they would not otherwise get through mainstream media, or, through discourse in their personal and professional lives. I am not afraid to discuss subjects that are taboo. I am not afraid of offending people with knowledge. If people’s sensibilities are hurt, they should go visit a slaughterhouse, a shelter, or a nursing home. I want people to stop believing what the idiot box, billboards, their churches, their parents, their bosses, and their friends tell them. I want people to trust their gut, question authority, the status quo, and their own biases, and not behave like little neo nazi corporate drones. I truly want to respect and admire more humans; and that can only happen if they let go of apathy and complacency, begin thinking of others aside from their own inner circles, and use the brains they were given.
The time to act is NOW before we completely destroy the world on which we live. Please be silent no more. Please do not be afraid of telling the truth. Being polite and politically correct will not help anyone, and will not save our world. Please be the change you want to see. You must act now. Please let go of being concerned with appearances and continually being concerned with your own personal pleasure and enjoyment; especially at the expense of the lives of others, when you can make a choice not to. Please stop making excuses to justify behaviors that either you or those you love participate in because you cannot face the consequences of the possible loss of friendships or loved ones. Being silent because of fear of rejection is not honorable. Please do not protect big industry. It’s not too late to stop these habits, and it should not stop there, but you should also educate and empower others to follow suit.
I created this site in order to “shoot” the system lies created by mostly white, and mostly men. I want to shoot the shit that has penetrated into people’s minds; shoot it into tiny fragments that decrease over and over in size until finally, their molecular structure is broken apart, the size of the shit molecules with which they bombard us are so miniscule that they once and for all disappear in our minds; allowing us to think clearly, to think compassionately, to think about others aside from just ourselves.
I spend many hours of my time dedicated to the creation of this project. I am doing it in the hopes that some people will open their minds and hearts, and will search through the information vegangster offers, and also visit other sites to which I have linked. I did not create vegangster.org for me. I don’t do this for money. This website is not about me. This website is not ABOUT being vegan. This website is about TRUTH. I’ts about INTEGRITY. It’s about HONESTY. It’s about COMPASSION. It’s about busting the advertising, health care and agriculture industry LIES wide open. It’s about giving information so people can CHANGE. I am spreading the word about the suffering of billions of animals; mostly non human. They are NOT here for OUR use. I am poppin’ a cap in the ass of the system. I am SICK of lies. I am an ARNP. I will not be silenced. Let vegangsterARNP BLOW your mind.
