Global Unity and Equality

"Equality means treating every person, no matter who they are, with respect and fairness. It's about justice, breaking down unfair systems, and making sure everyone gets their fair share." Michael Corthell   What do we mean by 'equality'? Equality encompasses the fundamental principle of ensuring that each and every individual is granted fair and impartial opportunities to fully explore and utilize their inherent potential and capabilities. It revolves around the notion that no person should encounter diminished life prospects solely due to circumstances beyond their control, such as their birth, socio-economic background, personal beliefs, or physical or cognitive abilities. At its core, equality represents the unwavering belief that every human being, regardless of their diverse attributes, should be treated with respect, dignity, and fairness. It stands as a formidable pillar of justice, emphasizing the eradication of unjust hierarchies and systemic disadvantag

What are the Spiritual and Religious Reasons Not to Eat Animals?

by Michael Corthell What is the number one reason not to eat animals? The main principle in Christianity is to love one another. The Golden Rule, which is a guiding principle in many major religions, also emphasizes this. Therefore, refraining from killing and consuming any living creature can be seen as an act of love toward them. This cannot be denied. That is why the top reason why we should avoid eating animals is because it aligns with the principle of love. If you're seeking a spiritual rationale to adopt veganism, let's delve deeper into the subject. Here's a thought-provoking question: How did the concept of killing animals become acceptable in Western society? Interestingly, according to the book of Genesis in the Bible, Adam and Eve were given dominion over animals, but that doesn't necessarily mean they were authorized to kill them. According to Genesis 1:29, the food in the Garden of Eden was plant-based. After Adam and Eve were banished from the garden, God

What If There Was A Nuclear War Between the US and Russia? | Why Were Nuclear Weapons Developed?

  Underwater test of a nuclear weapon circa 1950 by Michael Corthell General Douglas MacArthur said in his 1961 address to the Philippines Congress: "You will say at once that, although the abolition of war has been the dream of man for centuries, every proposition to that end has been promptly discarded as impossible and fantastic . But that was before the science of the past decade made mass destruction a reality. The argument then was along spiritual and moral lines, and lost. But now the tremendous evolution of nuclear and other potentials of destruction has suddenly taken the problem away from its primary consideration as a moral and spiritual question and brought it abreast of scientific realism." Why were nuclear weapons developed? This is the official line:  President Harry Truman authorized the use of two atom bombs in an effort to bring about Japan’s quick surrender in the Second World War and thereby save lives. In the days following the bombings, Japan did in fact

[Equality] is the singularity

  I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights.  That is the way of a whole human being. - Abraham Lincoln The same spirit that inhabits all human beings resides in all animals. Are People Like Animals? I thought about what people do to each other. And I said to myself, “God wants people to see that they are like animals. The same thing happens to animals and to people—they die. People and animals have the same ‘breath.’ Is a dead animal different from a dead person? It is all so senseless! The bodies of people and animals end the same way. They came from the earth, and, in the end, they will go back to the earth. Who knows what happens to a person’s spirit? Who knows if a human’s spirit goes up to God while an animal’s spirit goes down into the ground?” - Solomon, Ecclesiastes 3

[Carnism] Love Some, Eat Some

  A sure way to judge someone's heart and soul is by observing their treatment of not just some animals, but of all animals...and all creation for that matter. The Village Vegan  Love of animals is a universal impulse, a common ground on which all of us may meet. By loving and understanding animals, perhaps we humans shall come to understand each other.
