“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Vegan Time

This piece in Time has some pretty uncompromising information and arguments about vegetarianism and veganism (on the pro side). In particular, there are some arguments about free-range meat (doesn't that sound like a very very strange image? It should). Cows and chickens are raised kindly, then shot. Once you've crossed the threshold of realizing they shouldn't suffer in life, it does seem a bit much to then turn around and pop a cap in their heads.
