HEY

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

What’s the difference between eating a veg burger fried on the same flat top that an animal burger was fried on and eating seaweed that is harvested from an ocean in which humans slaughter fish?

Should we not eat the veg burger fried in a place where animals were fried? Should we also not eat seaweed harvested from a place where sea animals were slaughtered?

Can you taste the blood from the slaughtered animal in the veg burger and seaweed?

It’s there to be sure. But isn’t there blood everywhere?

How about the soil where soldiers lay their blood? Are we not to grow plant foods nor flowers in places where slaughter fed the earth? Are we not to drink the water from streams laced with the DNA of cows, pigs, chickens and deer, lambs and goats?

The blood is washed away to some place we all find familiar at some point.

The blood always comes home to us in some way.

CHANGING a few words doesn’t alter the DNA of the work. LIKE a mother knows her children no matter the alterations in appearance, I know my gift when I see it on someone else, even when portions are replaced with a poacher’s words. IF you receive the goods, you are as much a poacher of talent, words and images as the poacher who stole them – no matter the purpose. I am not free and you are making me less free by stealing my intellectual material and putting other peoples names to it. CHANGING A FEW WORDS PROVES YOU KNOW YOU'RE LIABLE. STEALING another person's intellectual material isn't flattery; it's stealing. ~ Sharon Lee Davies-Tight
