121 Using Violent Imagery in Activism
Today we chat philosophically about using violent imagery in our vegan activism, specifically around efficacy, consent, and the objectification of animals.
In This Episode
This week we kick it old school by tackling an issue from a philosophical standpoint: violent imagery in activism. We first briefly review two studies that look at the efficacy of violent imagery in activism; then we move onto consent, namely the consent of the viewer; and then we finish up by talking about how graphic images can objectify the victims.
Joke in the Middle:
What do you call a bear with no teeth?
