Kevin shared Earthlings with me last night. It contains the most graphic violence I’ve ever watched. In this case, violence against animals. Absolutely sickening.

This reinforces the lesson that in order for people to change, they need to be convinced at an emotional level, not just with logic and rational reasoning. That is, watching this documentary motivates me to be a vegetarian and to buy hemp shoes more than hearing about slaughter houses and pondering the inefficiencies in animal production versus raising crops.

Disagree with me? First, watch it. Then I will listen if you still hold that arguments and data are more effective.

Kevin groaned, “It makes me feel bad about having a leather bound Bible.”
