'I can foresee that in the not-so-distant-future people will eat only vegetarian food'

A message of support for the EVU Talks 2007 sent by Dr. Janez Drnovšek, President of the Republic of Slovenia

“If in certain periods of the human history people were dependent on animal food to avoid hunger, this is certainly not the case now. We can produce enough vegetarian food to feed all the people of the world.

Killing and torturing animals is a sign of low consciousness. It goes together with the prevailing patterns of selfishness and greed that rule the world. That's a major reason why we have so much human suffering around the world and so many people starving and dying from hunger.

A more balanced society based on higher consciousness could assure enough food for everybody, without killing and eating animals. It's very clear that animals have feelings and that they can be happy or suffer. But people who torture and kill them have no feelings and no consciousness. And those who eat dead animals share the responsibility.

I can foresee that in the not-so-distant-future people will eat only vegetarian food. Eating animals will be as unimaginable as is cannibalism today. And there will be much more harmony and peace in the world.”
