In the rare moment when a vegan appears on a screen, they are usually there to poke fun at. Groot has broken through the barrier and is the greatest embodiment of veganism to ever come to the silver screen. Here’s why…
Groot knows that saving the world requires:
Non-attachment to ego
Groot has no shadows and is not in resistance. Therefore he is unaffected when others put him down with accusations that he is unintelligent due to his limited vocabulary and calm of being. The reality is that Groot is a Zen master fully integrated into his authentic self at all moments.
Teamwork through the cultivation of true friendship and unconditional love
And using your strengths to empower others
Groot is the living essence of veganism, as he leads with his compassion
Groot shares kindness and compassion with those in need.
Groot is a minimalist who cuts through the unnecessary and gets straight to the point.
Groot has a deep connection to the universal consciousness.
Rocket is an ambassador for all victimized animals
As a vegan and animal rights activist, I want to rescue Rocket. Love him and protect him. Give him the opportunity to rehabilitate, relearn trust and to just be an animal.
I love what Rocket symbolizes. Like most animals, Rocket has been exploited, imprisoned, abused and tortured by people. Just like if this happened to a human, he has suffered pain, fear, neglect, depression, lack of self-worth and despair. Animal victims of the food, breeding, wildlife trafficking, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, research, Chinese medicine, hunting, poaching and entertainment industries suffer the same traumas.
And just like Rocket, those same exploited animals are then blamed for their circumstances. Rocket is called a freak, a rodent, vermin, etc. Just as humans have decided collectively to categorize animals as “pets”, “pests”, “food”, “mutts”, “lab rats”, “ingredients”, etc. This is not unlike humans being blamed for being victimized and then labeled as such.
