Carnism: The Psychology of Eating Meat

Melanie Joy presents "Carnism: The Psychology of Eating Meat" at the McDougall Advanced Study Weekend, February 2012.

Kick back, relax, and open your ears to this wonderful and fluid speech about what allows people to eat some animals but not others, what these animals seen as food go through to get on people's plates, and how we can make ethical and compassionate choices for a better, and just world. Remember, it's not the animals that are different, it's our perception of them that is different~
