Anti Consumption

I'm shopped out. I feel like a hamster, mostly due to to wanting to get everything in order, but I'm shopped out and tired of "invisible practice" (expression for Gail Sher's book One Continous Mistake, four noble truths for writers) - sorting everything out so I'm able to get the real job done. I got everything I need, so no more buying anything except food! Hopefully this posting will keep me in check!

“We should always be clear that animal exploitation is wrong because it involves speciesism. And speciesism is wrong because, like racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-semitism, classism, and all other forms of human discrimination, speciesism involves violence inflicted on members of the moral community where that infliction of violence cannot be morally justified. But that means that those of us who oppose speciesism necessarily oppose discrimination against humans. It makes no sense to say that speciesism is wrong because it is like racism (or any other form of discrimination) but that we do not have a position about racism. We do. We should be opposed to it and we should always be clear about that.”
