In this excerpt from the documentary Smasara, you’ll witness 6 minutes of shame for the human race.
I find it deeply disturbing that mankind would misuse its intelligence to create apparatuses that diminish the quality of life for animals simply to expedite the killing process. The fact that we continue to create more and more horrific weapons to kill even our own species shows our lack of respect for life. I hereby withdraw my association with the human race. I am now just an animal. Kill an animal and you kill me. Eat an animal and you eat me. For those of conscience, please consider the chain of suffering involved to bring a piece of meat to your plate. You are part of that chain. Is it worth it? Don’t blindly answer this question with an autonomic response. Enter your consciousness into the inquiry. Can you imagine a humanity that cares about the welfare of all sentient beings? It seems like we are taught not to care, that it is acceptable to drop depleted uranium bombs, that we can slaughter animals for our own culinary pleasure, that we can destroy and waste the earth’s resources. What a message we are sending to the children of this world who will inevitably grow up to accept and repeat the same atrocities. You want a better world? Become more conscious and deepen your compassion for life! Then encourage others and help them to get out of their apathy so that the human race can blossom into becoming the humane race that we were meant to be. – Sevaji
