I’ve seen this being talked about on Youtube and social media. It might sound odd to others but to me it makes perfect sense.
We are all tied down by society. Everything we do, from the way we act to the things we buy, is drilled into us by society. The media and news, family, friends and tradition among other things drive the way we behave. There are so many things that I do because society tells me to. I wear makeup, eat 3 meals a day and celebrate my birthday but I don’t need to do these things.
Marriage is one example of something purely created by society. When it was first created, it was about creating alliances between families and the youngsters had no say in the matter. It was not about love. As time passed, it’s value and meaning changed. Society changed it. It is not a natural thing to get married but most people do want to get married. Yet many don’t and are content with just living with their partner as they do not see the point in it. These people are probably asked frequently when they are going to get married and why don’t they want to. These people are often not seen as normal in society’s eyes.
People have been eating animal products for a long time. Therefore, to go against this is to go against societal norms. It is considered normal to eat animal products but not normal to eat a plant based diet. Most people who are vegan were not born into it. Most came from families that ate animal products and brought their children up to eat them and to believe that they are suppose to be eating them. Once upon a time, my eyes were opened up to what was really going on. In my opinion, there are no benefits from buying or eating animal products. Animals, our planet and ourselves suffer and as a result of eating what is considered normal by society. Once I found out the truth, I had to stop eating them. If society wants to go ahead and say that killing animals for food is OK then I do not want to be a part of society. I was so mad with society that I decided to look at even more ways to ‘rebel.’
So join me. Let’s all rebel against the unethical race that we are part of. Society can and will change if enough people are willing to stand up for what is right.
