“Life’s too short to make another’s shorter”

"Life’s too short to make another’s shorter” is a vegan saying that has been printed o many images. The Canadian punk rock band Propagandhi, in the song “Nailing Descartes To The Wall (Liquid) Meat Is Still Murder” (1996), said:

“But you cannot deny that meat is still murder. Dairy is still rape. And I’m still as stupid as anyone, but I know my mistakes. I have recognized one form of oppression, now I recognize the rest. And life’s too short to make another’s shorter.”


Wikipedia: Propagandhi
Propagandhi is a Canadian punk rock band formed in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba in 1986 by guitarist Chris Hannah and drummer Jord Samolesky. The band is currently located in Winnipeg, Manitoba and completed by bassist Todd Kowalski and guitarist Sulynn Hago.

While their earlier work was aligned with the punk rock and skate punk tradition, in later years Propagandhi records have moved towards a heavier and more technical heavy metal-influenced sound. Both in their lyrics and hands-on activism, the band’s members champion various left wing and anarchist causes and veganism, and have taken a vocal stance against human rights violations, sexism, racism, nationalism, homophobia, imperialism, capitalism and organized religion.

STOP CONSUMING ANIMALS.
NAILING DESCARTES TO THE WALL/(LIQUID) MEAT IS STILL MURDER
I speak outside what is recognized as the border between “reason” and
“insanity”. But I consider it a measure of my humanity to be written off by the
living graves of a billion murdered lives. And I’m not ashamed of my recurring
dreams about me and a gun and a different species (hint: starts with “h” and
rhymes with “Neuman’s") of carnage strewn about the stockyards, the factories
and farms. Still I know as well as anyone that it does less good than harm to
be this honest with a conscience eased by lies. But you cannot deny that meat
is still murder. Dairy is still rape. And I’m still as stupid as anyone, but I
know my mistakes. I have recognized one form of oppression, now I recognize the
rest. And life’s too short to make another’s shorter-(animal liberation now!).
