"This book for me was interesting because most of the authors were white. I found this problematic because this would cause them to analyze the communities of color, it's issues, and the potential solutions from the outside-looking-in perspective t..." Read more of this review »

Carol J. Adams
“We live in a culture that has institutionalized the oppression of animals on at least two levels: in formal structures such as slaughterhouses, meat markets, zoos, laboratories, and circuses, and through our language. That we refer to meat eating rather than to corpse eating is a central example of how our language transmits the dominant culture's approval of this activity.”
Carol J. Adams, The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory

John Taylor Gatto
“Although teachers do care and do work very, very hard, the institution is psychopathic-it has no conscience. It rings a bell and the young man in the middle of writing a poem must close his notebook and move to a different cell where he must memorize that humans and monkeys derive from a common ancestor.”
John Taylor Gatto, Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling

Mark Twain
“Religion was invented when the first con man met the first fool.”
Mark Twain

Malcolm X
“You don't stick a knife in a man's back nine inches and then pull it out six inches and say you're making progress ... No matter how much respect, no matter how much recognition, whites show towards me, as far as I am concerned, as long as it is not shown to everyone of our people in this country, it doesn't exist for me.”
Malcolm X

Carol J. Adams
“While self-interest arising from the enjoyment of meat eating is obviously one reason for its entrenchment, and inertia another, a process of language usage engulfs discussions about meat by constructing the discourse in such a way that these issues need never be addressed. Language distances us from the reality of meat eating, thus reinforcing the symbolic meaning of meat eating, a symbolic meaning that is intrinsically patriarchal and male-oriented. Meat becomes a symbol for what is not seen but is always there--patriarchal control of animals and of language.”
Carol J. Adams, The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory
