Today’s animal rights movement has never wavered from its ultimate aim: the complete abolition of a long list of consumer choices that most Americans enjoy. These include meat, dairy foods, hunting, fishing, zoos, aquariums, circuses, rodeos, fur, leather, wool, and silk.

Each is entitled “7 Things You Didn’t Know” and they will quickly introduce you to the deception, manipulation and hunger for tyrannical power behind these groups.
