“Having my eyes opened to the widespread scale of industrial animal abuse was one of the most painful things I’ve ever experienced. As I started working with other vegans in my psychology practice who were deeply traumatized at the knowledge and images of what happens to animals behind closed doors, I realized that we suffer from something much bigger, which I’ve named Vystopia, a vegan dystopia. It’s the recognition that we’re living in a society where people are brainwashed into colluding with this unspeakable cruelty, to the point where they dismiss us when we share what we now know.”
