Extract from an interview with Philip Wollen

The question was "WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO DO WHAT YOU DO?"

Patrice H.'s insight:

Extract from an interview with Philip Wollen - The question was "WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO DO WHAT YOU DO?"
RESPONSE: There was no single seminal event, just a gradual realization that I had experienced a paradigm shift in my thinking. There was a time when I used to joke that the only thing that will change a man is if he:
a) finds religion
or
b) Has a full frontal lobotomy.
Nowadays I say it is when he discovers his character.
If there ever was a Damascene event in my case, then it would be the time I visited a large industrial conglomerate in the course of my professional work as a merchant banker. I inspected one of their subsidiaries – which turned out to be a slaughterhouse. It was the most terrifying experience of my life and it affected me profoundly. I made the most important decision of my life that morning. To become a vegetarian; to leave my career; and become an advocate for social justice.
But I was not yet a vegan. I didn’t know enough. I thought that dairy was the bucolic, peaceful image of green pastures and crystal streams, rolling hills and the poetry of Wordsworth and Shelley. Little did I know that behind the dairy walls was a cruel industrial juggernaut, a vile gulag of despair.
I discovered that milk was meat in liquid form. During a business trip to India I saw a milkman dragging and whipping a cow. She had been badly injured in an accident with a lorry. To get her to move, he was throwing chili powder in her eyes, and shoving sharp objects in her anus. He had a chain around her neck and forced her to walk with a broken leg and severe injuries to her spine. Beside her walked her scrawny, starving and terrified calf, ribs protruding and her skinny legs trembling. At the slaughterhouse gate, he unchained her. But before he did so, the bastard milked her.
If that sight does not change the heart of a man, nothing will.

Danica Kloes's curator insight, April 7, 10:59 AM

Climate change is such a sensitive topic right now. I've even came across a video once of a news interview, where a man was virulently denying that climate change was even really happening; he claimed it wasn't real. I think that that is absolutely ridiculous. The abundance of evidence is there; climate change is an actual thing, and I'm so happy to see renewable energy taking hold. Even if climate change wasn't actually happening, it would still be important to make that switch to renewable energy, because the energy sources we use are not going to last forever, and we should switch over before it is too late to do so and we run out of nonrenewable energy sources. I think it's great that big companies are pledging to make the 100% switch to renewable energy, and that even whole countries like Denmark have a laid out plan to do so by 2050. I hope to see this more and more as time goes by.
