Animal Dharma Podcast 4 “The Misanthropic Bunker”

My forthcoming book, Animal Dharma, explores what it means to care deeply about animals and discovers how we can live peacefully with ourselves and others by proposing four key values: truth, compassion, nonviolence and interbeing–the interrelatedness of all.

This is the fourth in a series of podcasts in which I read out brief extracts from Animal Dharma. It is called “The Misanthropic Bunker.” When we live in a world which often seems to be floating in a sea of blood from the slaughter of billions of animals, it is tempting to hide in the misanthropic bunker. I explain why this isn’t an option if we want to achieve moral and legal rights for animals.

    When I read over the above, my first thoughts were “Oh, shut up Kim, there’s no place as cosy and you know it – let those of us who’ve earned the right to look down on the vulgar masses do so with some little bit of bliss.”

    Wise words unfolded in the podcast though which the animal rights movement would do well to accept at this low ebb in its history.
