I wouldn’t compare Lydia Guevara’s foray into vegetarian activism to her grandfather’s, as PETA suggests. Still, it’s very cool that she that she has teamed up with PETA, who encouraged her to become a vegetarian, to promote vegetarianism in South America. “Moreover, this lifestyle has become a true revolution that is attracting more people and is an alternative that is healthier for the planet and for humankind,” said Guevara to the Spanish news agency Efe. Vegetarianism is hardly a revolution.
According to Vegetarian Society: “A vegetarian ideology was practiced among religious groups in Egypt around 3,200BC, with abstinence from flesh based upon karmic beliefs in reincarnation.” But I can overstand why PETA would throw the word revolution around like the secret word of the day on Pee-wee’s Playhouse. Their heart is in the right place, so kudos to them and Guevara.
