A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Pandemics – 29 April 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

All the talk about swine flu makes me think about the way humans cause their own problems by crossing the line between species when they insist on eating the body parts and secretions of other sentient beings.

They talk about “pandemics” as though humans bear no responsibility in the cause; and the governments and media, lackeys who do the bidding of the powerful animal product industries, keep the public woefully ignorant. In the latest fiasco – swine flu – they actually tell the public to continue eating pig products!

Isn’t it interesting that humans, in the first place, could have saved themselves from all these diseases simply by extending their empathy/compassion to other species by refusing to be carnivores/omnivores? Pandemics originate from the raising of animals for food.

Go Vegan! Yes, it’s that simple!
