Glad to see your message. Social changes take time. I have great hopes in
the younger generation who have much better access to information is likely
to be affected when they become aware of the issues involved in factory

rights interest ultimately leads those interested becoming ethical
vegetarians in due course. Who can predict how the future is going to
evolve. We will have to see how changes take place in the future.
