My forthcoming book, Animal Dharma, explores what it means to care deeply about animals and discovers how we can live peacefully with ourselves and others by proposing four key values: truth, compassion, nonviolence and interbeing–the interrelatedness of all.
This is the fourth in a series of podcasts in which I read out brief extracts from Animal Dharma. It is called “The Misanthropic Bunker.” When we live in a world which often seems to be floating in a sea of blood from the slaughter of billions of animals, it is tempting to hide in the misanthropic bunker. I explain why this isn’t an option if we want to achieve moral and legal rights for animals.
