Author and speaker Dr. Melanie Joy has made numerous live presentations across the country to a general audience on the psychology behind eating animals she calls carnism. For those who have not seen this powerful presentation about the invisible belief system behind our meat eating culture, now you can watch this live recording on your desktop anytime you’d like.
And here are what some of the leading figures in the animal advocacy movement are saying about this:
“Carnism is a revolutionary concept that neither animal advocates nor meat eaters can afford to ignore.” — John Robbins, Internationally bestselling author of Diet for a New America, The New Good Life, and The Food Revolution
“Carnism is an extremely important concept that has the potential to dramatically transform the way society thinks about eating animals.” — Gene Baur, president and cofounder of Farm Sanctuary and author of Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds about Animals and Food
“The concept of carnism is important and empowering; it uniquely names and illumines what has been virtually invisible in our culture’s most defining attitudes and practices.” — Dr. Will Tuttle, author of The World Peace Diet
“With the advent of carnism, we now have a word which, if adopted widely, could pave the way for conscious and conscientious acts of resistance and help bring about the liberation of both animals and humans.” — Zoe Weil, president of the Institute for Humane Education and author of Most Good, Least Harm
“Carnism shows us that cultural conditioning is the only basis for widespread meat eating today.” — Jonathan Balcombe, Animal behavior scientist and author of Second Nature and Pleasurable Kingdom
