If we were not ourselves involved in routine violence towards a handful of species, we would find it appalling and step in to shield defenseless and innocent animals from harm.
Because our personal behavior is entwined with the violence in an unavoidable way, we may feel threatened when the message of peace is presented without deference to our cultural habits.
The message is not an attack, it's an opportunity to disentangle ourselves, enjoy our newfound freedom, and empower those around us to do the same.
