Become A Fruitarian
Fruit cleanses and renews the body, which need never grow decrepit on a diet of fruit ·· nature's true food for man.
Fruit and nuts are so sustaining, so purifying both mentally and physically! Their new diet would prove to be so satisfying that they would eat far, far less.
Animal life, left to itself, would adjust itself. Animals, no longer preyed upon by men, would cease to be dangerous, even cease to prey upon each other.
From trees and shrubs man can obtain all his needs, wood for building, cotton, paper, cork, rubber, medicine, clothing, and all the food he requires. Living thus, man would lose his stupidity, cruelty and acquisitiveness; war and disease would cease for ever.
We know that Hitler was a Vegetarian .. but that does not help the world. No, the first requirement is for mankind to get a reaction from its present mode of living, and to decide at last to try to be really honest spiritually. That means facing a few simple commandments:
" Thou shalt not kill "
That means no wars and no meat!
" Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself ".
