We know that capitalist societies kill and consume more animals per capita than does any other economic system. Socialist societies consume per capita little more than half the animals that capitalist societies do.
If the US were socialist, instead of murdering 9 billion animals per year, the figure would be less than 5 billion.
We would save 4 BILLION animals lives each year. At the very least. Perhaps as many as 6 billion.
And we would do so without recruiting a single additional vegan. Without the help of any more animal activists.
It would be accomplished by socialist revolutionaries. And of course we would attempt to make that society vegan as well, which could mean millions more saved.
The question for animal activists is this: If all this information is true, why wouldn’t you support socialism for America? Or for Canada? Australia? The UK? Europe? Everywhere?
Are you too invested in your lifestyle? Too reluctant to change? Afraid of the future? Don’t really care enough for the animals to risk being a revolutionary?
Or do you have priorities more important to you than the animals?
It is time to choose sides. The animals or capitalism. Animals or their enemies. The status quo or a change of systems.
I hope you choose the animals.
