television seems past ……

More and more I get my info via the internet. Yesterday I saw the next two videos. The first is a discussion in a setting I like ; two intellectuals in front of their computers, drinking their coffee or thee out of their favorite mug and taking the time needed to come to a conclusion. No studio host, no advertisements, no fancy things, only interesting thoughts. I think that the idea of “bloggingheads” is superb ……

It only takes an hour to watch the whole discussion. see;

The next one is a viral movie, made by the Swiss Animal Protection. The viral was sent to me by basman. He warned me for all the cruelty shown in the movie. So don’t have a look when there are little children around ! But I have the opinion that when people can’t resist the temptation to wear fur or leather and to eat meat; then they should be brave enough to see the next video.

Ofcourse not all chinese leather and fur is “produced” this way, but the need for more supervision on “quality” is clear. Personaly I think that “plastic” and other synthetic materials is not a good substitution ( plastic waste in the oceans) but nevertheless Peta has enough good info about ethical treatment of animals, to have a look at their website.

When you have a strong spirit, you can have a look at this second video ;
