‎When people claim to be animal rights activists based only on the fact that they are vegan, they are engaging in rhetoric to absolve feelings of responsibility to actually act on behalf of animals. Saying you are an animal activist because you refuse to kill animals is like saying you are an anti-rape activist because you refuse to rape people.

First-time study showing empirical evidence confirming the conventional wisdom that corporations actually do control most of the world’s finances.  Left: Interconnecting network of nearly 43,000 corporations (TNCs), with node sizes representing the ‘tier of control’ over others.   Right: Zoom in of core. Part of the economic “super-entity” that controls nearly 1/3 of global wealth.
From the scientific paper: In detail, nearly 4/10 of the control over the economic value of TNCs in the world is held, via a complicated web of ownership relations, by a group of 147 TNCs in the core, which has almost full control over itself.
