Angela Davis: The Food We Eat

The food we eat masks so much cruelty. The fact that we can sit down and eat a piece of chicken without thinking about the horrendous conditions under which chickens are industrially bred in this country is a sign of the dangers of capitalism, how capitalism has colonized our minds. The fact that we look no further than the commodity itself, the fact that we refuse to understand the relationships that underly the commodities that we use on a daily basis. And so food is like that.

- Angela Davis

May we each bring increasing mindfulness, consciousness, caring, compassion, and alignment with our deepest values into all aspects of our lives, very much including the food we choose to eat. This is the greatest antidote to apathy, ignorance, denial, and other forms of collusion in cruelty. Bless all beings. - Molly
