Unscramble the Blue Letters

We need to build a big tent that everyone can get under. From the chicken factory framer, to the mega meat company, to the animal rgthis activist. And these lessons, they can apply to many causes, whether it be with a peoblrm with an ex, a neighbor or an in-law. Or with some of the besggit problems of exploitation and oppression, like factory farming, or mogsyiny or racism or climate change. The world's smallest and biggest prmlbeos, they won't be solved by beating down our eieenms but by fidning these win-win pathways together. It does require us to let go of that idea of us versus them and realize there's only one us, all of us, against an unjust system. And it is difficult, and messy, and uncomfortable. But it is critical. And maybe the only way to build that compassionate food system that we all, from the chicken to the chicken farmer to the mega meat company, to all of us, deserve.

Original Text

We need to build a big tent that everyone can get under. From the chicken factory farmer, to the mega meat company, to the animal rights activist. And these lessons, they can apply to many causes, whether it be with a problem with an ex, a neighbor or an in-law. Or with some of the biggest problems of exploitation and oppression, like factory farming, or misogyny or racism or climate change. The world's smallest and biggest problems, they won't be solved by beating down our enemies but by finding these win-win pathways together. It does require us to let go of that idea of us versus them and realize there's only one us, all of us, against an unjust system. And it is difficult, and messy, and uncomfortable. But it is critical. And maybe the only way to build that compassionate food system that we all, from the chicken to the chicken farmer to the mega meat company, to all of us, deserve.
