I will not to get distracted about the whole Bristol Palin pregnancy thing. There are more things that I’m concerned with.
What I am concerned about is that if Palin/McCain wins, what will it mean for those of us involved with animal rights movement as well as holistic health and planted-based dietary eating? May be I am paranoid here, but I wonder if McCain and Palin would actually try to make it an act of “terrorism” if US Citizens do not subscribe to biopharmeceutical “remedies”, do not subscribe to a carni-centric diets, etc. After all, this could be perceived as an act of terrorism against good ole American businesses that rely on exploitation of non-human animals, degradation of our landbase, and exploitation of so many people’s fear and misinformation around “health” and “food”. Would we be seen as “the enemy”?
I know with the Bush administration, the AR movement is considered domestic terrorism already. Just something to think about, especially since so many of us rely on “alternative” forms of food and healing in our lives.
