Animal 'Rights'

"Christianity is our foe. If animal rights is to succeed, we must destroy the Judeo-Christian Religious tradition"
[Peter Singer, Founder of Animal Rights, quoted at: source].


Vegetarianism and Veganism

"After author Jeanette Winterson Tweeted that she'd captured and eaten a rabbit, she was attacked by vegetarians who said they'd never again read a single word she wrote. An unrepentant meat-eater responded: 'A reading list confined to vegetarian authors would be extremely restrictive', and she's right. You'd have to read the warped, nightmarish stories of Franz Kafka who, after becoming a vegetarian, said to a fish in an aquarium: 'Now I can look at you in peace; I don't eat you any more.'  Or you could opt for Mein Kampf by that other great animal-loving veggie Adolf Hitler"
[Amanda Platell, Daily Mail, 21 June 2014].


Food Control

"At the World Food Programme we have recognized what a valuable tool food aid can be in changing behaviour. In so many poorer countries food is money. Food is power. We use it to change behaviour. Some may call that bribery. We do not apologise"
[Catherine Bertini, Executive Director, UN Food Program, UN Highlights, July 1998].

"Across the Western world, the politically correct micro-managing of daily life continues to intensify. ... It's also worth recalling that the mania sweeping Britain and parts of America for bans on tobacco, alcohol, fattening foods, non-organic foods and non-local foods has significant antecedents in Nazi ideology. Hitler Youth manuals proclaimed that 'nutrition is not a private matter', a slogan that summarises vast swathes of the eco-Left's propagandising. Nazis led the world in researching organic foods and alternative medicines (the concentration camp Dachau boasted the largest alternative and organic medicine research lab in the world). Heinrich Himmler was an animal rights activist and proponent of 'natural healing'. Hitler and his advisors discussed the need to move the entire nation to vegetarianism as a response to the unhealthiness promoted by capitalism"
[Jonah Goldberg, Daily Mail, 04 January 2009].

"If we are not even free anymore to decide something as basic as what we wish to eat or drink, how much freedom do we really have left?"
[Representative Ron Paul, 16 May 2011, quoted at: source].
