Justice, Compassion & Equality For All

Is that too much to ask?

Can I please have 19 minutes and 21 seconds of your time please?

I will tell you what the intention of this story is not. I am not trying to sell you something. This is not a click bait story. This is not a listicle of life hacks.

This story is about one of two recent TEDx Talks given by animal rights advocate Ed Winters.

Winters’ profile has increased, particularly online where he is more known as Earthling Ed. Winters relentlessly campaigns to educate people about veganism.

Winters does not condone militant animal rights activists. Winters believes that we should live in a world of justice, compassion and equality for all sentient beings.

Winters’ talk below was given at Bath University, England in March this year. The duration of the video is 19 minutes and 21 seconds.

According to the world health organisation, global life expectancy in 2016 was 72 years. There are 37,843,200 minutes in 72 years. All I am asking is for is 19 minutes and 21 seconds of your time to watch the video below.

I am not affiliated with Ed Winters in any way. I simply write about what I am passionate about. And veganism is one of my many passions.
