'isms

The video the title links to is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, with music by Moby and it draws attention the stark realities of the ways of life we live alongside. Regardless of whether we look, regardless of whether we turn away - there are professions and people fulfilling them, that are beyond comprehension.

Our demands as consumers are usually blamed for these things - so as consumers, we need to know what it is we are responsible for. Blindly purchasing cannot be an option. We essentially pay others to commit atrosities on our behalf.

Earthlings is not easy to watch - but impossible to ignore.
