He’s going to kill me

My teenage cousin recently asked me to give her motivation to adopt a vegetarian diet—all of the gory details, she keenly assured me. Upon careful consideration, viewing Earthlings with her would certainly fulfill her request. The film, consisting of footage of the common, outrageously inhumane practices that humans inflict on creatures of all ilk is so intensely graphic that it calls itself “One of the most violent films of all time … only it’s real.” Her father would probably kill me, but at least it has more purpose than the gratuitously violent movies he’s allowed her to watch in the past. More significantly, she says she’s ready for the truth. I’ll let her preview the devastating trailer at http://earthlings.com first, then decide. What about you? Are you ready?
