THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO!
McDonalds spend billions trying to convince us that their shit is champagne,
so we're just trying to redress the balance......
And if people really knew what damage they were doing to themselves and their
own life-support system (aka 'environment') then tofu and beet fast food would be
extremely popular, believe me!
Why does something made from animals have such a 'better' image than something
made from plants ? Simply because our TVs, radios, magazines and billboards incessantly
tell us that meat is better! There is no other reason!
