(en) Portugal, Action Direct #2 - p6 - Other ways of living - Libertarian Vegetarianism: far beyond the power + (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 04 Feb 2013 18:47:49 +0200


What drives a person to adopt a vegetarian diet? Aesthetic concern? Health? Discerning palate? ---- Obviously every vegetarian carries his individual reason, but what few realize is that vegetarianism goes far beyond a food issue. ---- We will talk of vegetarianism under a libertarian vision to share the reasons why we adopt this choice. ---- Being a libertarian is, in principle, to defend the freedom of each individual. We are not limited to supporting only the freedom of the human being, since everyone who walks on land is provided with feelings. We stand for animal liberation and an end to their exploitation by man, since animals are not able to defend themselves without our support. Vegetarianism is a way of impacting the industries responsible for such exploitation, besides being a healthy and varied diet.


But that's not all. The simple fact is by not eating meat
itself a care for the environment, since the industry
meat accounts for a large portion of the pollution of rivers and
atmosphere, pouring tons of waste and toxic agents
that contribute to the deterioration inclusive layer
ozone.

Furthermore, cattle requires more resources than
cultivation of vegetables, wasting water and cereals.

80% of the soybeans produced in the world is used as livestock feed
for the meat industry, and these plants could be
used to feed starving people, more than half of the water
consumed in the world is destined to livestock, when it would be
productive use this water to the grains to our
own consumption. And these are just some examples of the impact
caused by meat consumption.

Among many points economic, ethical, environmental and even
in care for life, adopt vegetarianism as
actions by respect for the animals, the preservation of the
environment, for economic reasons and for a meal
certainly healthy and tasty.

So we understand that vegetarianism is also a posture
libertarian. We suggest you seek more information about
vegetarianism. We ensure it is easy and pleasant to take
this diet and lifestyle.
