Gone YouTube

Over the past few years I've created and been involved in the making of a number of films and videos, most of them centering on the subject of this blog. A few days ago, I began uploading my videos to YouTube. You can access them from here

The one below is most apropos the holiday season. It's a none-too-subtle attempt to get viewers to take a pass on foods borne of animal abuse during this "good will to men" time of year ... and all year (New Year's resolution, anyone?). The great Albert Schweitzer - a deeply spiritual Christian whose Christmas celebrations likely were vegetarian or very close to it - famously said:
"Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace." (Pardon the sexist language. This is an old quote.)
Extending our circle of compassion to animals who are so much like us and who are barely distinguishable from our companion animals is what this video is about. 

If you want to watch YouTube's highest quality stream of the video (recommended - it's much better), please view it directly on YouTube, here, and select "watch in high quality" at the bottom right, below the video.
