ACT RADIO - Melanie Joy, Carnism pt 2

Greg & Tom continue their conversation with Melanie Joy, founder & president of the Carnism Awareness & Action Network.  Carnism is an invisible belief system that blocks empathy over the eating of certain animals.  She talks about why the thought of eating a horse or a dog is often reprehensible to many of us who don't think twice about eating beef or pork.  She also talks about false projections that carnists may hold against vegans & vegetarians, but also about the false projections vegans & vegetarians may hold against each other.  Joy encourages all of us to live with the 4 "C's" - Curiosity, Compassion, Clarity, and Courage - and to interweave them into our lives to make us more compassionate creatures.  Aired Feb. 24, 2013.
