For a 10 AM lecture it generated about 70 people which was outstanding. I read Melanie's book a while back and it makes a lot of sense to explain why meat eating is so pervasive in our culture. Just like sexism, speciesism, and racism, we look upon our meat eating as a belief system. We don't even give it a second thought and that keeps the belief system alive. She's named it "Carnism."
The presentation was a multimedia one, with short clips of animal cruelty and animal farming, all to help bridge the gap between the "meat" and the "person" it once was.
