Katie Teehan

I don't like the word flexitarian. It sounds pretentious and smug; I wouldn't blame anyone for rolling their eyes when they hear it.

Jack Peat

The notion that we may one day become a power source for robots who keep us running by hooking us up to a system that delivers all the sensory requirements a person needs may seem far-fetched, but it's dystopia in its finest form.

We tell boys to be brave, to 'man' up. If they are gentle or show emotion they are often called a 'girl', as if that was a weakness. Compassion is seen as a feminine characteristic, undesirable in men - with tragic consequences.

Why has animal agriculture been brushed conveniently under the carpet?

Conscious Consumption - A New Trend?

Kylie Barton | Posted 22.11.2016 | UK Lifestyle
