CARNISM IS A CORE BELIEF SYSTEM THAT HAS TO BE UNDERSTOOD TO OVERCOME.
Carnism is a social justice issue that is just now, for the first time in 40k years of human evolution, coming to light. For the entirety of human existence we have unjustly assumed our place at the top of the proverbial food chain. We have progressed under the assumption that animals are ours to do with as we please.
This is not true. We have been living a fallacy. Animals do not belong to us. They are sentient, feeling, caring and deeply emotional beings with complex social structures and a desire to live.
