Editorial

I opposisjon

In opposition

Vi et kjøt fordi det er tradisjon, fordi det er kultur, fordi det er ideologi. Kjøtindustriell ideologi. Men er det rett? "Eg har forlate førestillinga om at dyr er skapte for menneske. Måten vi utnyttar dei på, gjer oss umenneskelege", skriv vegan Shabana Rehman Gaarder.
We eat meat because it is tradition, because it is culture, because it is an ideology. The meat industry ideology. But is it right? "I have abandoned the notion that animals are created for humans. The way we exploit them makes us inhuman," writes vegan Shabana Rehman Gaarder.
