Jim Mason

Jim is a lawyer, journalist and animal rights activist. He was introduced to philosopher Peter Singer in 1974. Their book Animal Factories was first published in 1980 and revised in 1990. It provides a critical review and photographic documentation of factory farming practices in North America. Jim was elected to the U.S. Animal Rights Hall of Fame in 2001. He is a vegan and seems to have a naturalistic worldview. He criticises the dominionism often present in supernatural and religious thinking, saying “Dominionism is the worldview or belief held by one species that it has a divine right to use animals and everything else in the living world for its own benefit.” He has said “Drop the mysticism and the phony irrelevant stories and recognize reality. Biology. We are animals who evolved from other animals who evolved into our animal cousins. Science. Biology. Reality please.”
