    Inspiring. Vegans may not think they “need” to watch Earthlings, but I guarantee that if you do, you will stay vegan for life.

    As to outlawing exposing animal industry, there’s a right to free speech, and no right to make profit. Thank you for publicizing this film, though I have to say I hate its attitude that pets are acceptable and especially any implication that they’re ambassadors of why we should care for our effects on other lifeforms, it makes it into a carrot-and-stick thing instead of reinforcing the much more important, larger picture of ecology, that without animals, our inhabiting the environment becomes impossible, too.

    Tremendously eye-opening as to what happens out there. I was not aware of how our nicely packaged meats are actually produced, and being a meat-lover, I was saddened to see how many animals are treated, and wish I had seen such a documentary years ago. While I think there is a happy medium where we may be able to breed animals for meat ‘humanely’ and ‘responsibly’, NO animal should ever be treated as depicted in this documentary. I will not eat meat for a long time…and when I do, I will make sure that it’s end was not like what I saw in the documentary, if that is at all possible. Luckily I also love vegetables…

Got something to say?
