Have you noticed those glass cages at airports? Addicts
pace inside, puffing on cigarettes, while enormously efficient fans atop
terminal buildings suck out carbon monoxide and other noxious fumes.
Airports have been declared smoke-free zones, and with
good reason. Cigarette smokers offend non-smokers, and those who
continue the practice are placed in see-through glass cubicles for other
passengers to gawk at. Cigarette smokers are a dying breed in more ways
Five hundred years from now, when starships are no
longer science fiction, and when man evolves into the spiritual being
that he was always fated to become, would you imagine that he will still
be killing animals to provide for his sustenance?
With delicious and nutritious soy and wheat analogues,
twenty-first century man has eliminated that desire for chicken and cow
flesh among millions of people who have become vegetarians and vegans.
Further advances in nutritional science will one day replicate exactly
the textures of foods that omnivores find appealing. The seeds of the
earth and the fruits of those seeds will supply mankind with all of its
food needs, and do so in a manner in which every meal becomes a culinary
On that day, all of planet Earth will become a meat-free
Historians may very well identify a moment in time in
which the first step to the creation of a universal meat-free zone
Folks, we are witnessing history. Join me in welcoming
the origin of the meat-free-zone movement.
Andy Glick and Jerry Cook, both members of EarthSave
International's board of Directors, have turned Glick's original concept

not puff upon cigarettes. Today, cigarette smokers have become society's
pariahs. So, too, will meat eaters one day be considered more than
pariahs. The last of the meat eaters will be ridiculed as unhealthy
savages who torture and kill gentle creatures, and, in doing so,
saturate their own bodies with dangerous
animal fats and cholesterol.
Together, Glick and Cook have clicked and look forward
to a world in which meat-free zone signs are posted in homes and
restaurants. Today America, tomorrow the world!
I myself have ordered the first run of t-shirts and
bumper stickers in support of this program. I hope that you do the same.
Join the movement. Andy and Jerry have dug deep into
their pockets, and are offering free beginner kits:
Do whatever you can to help take this message to
millions of people. One day, the meat-free-zone signs will be taken
down, for that is mankind's destiny. On that day the animals will earn a
right that mankind has denied them; the unalienable right to live their
lives without pain.
Help to accelerate that moment.
