"I don't think there's much point in bemoaning the state of the world unless there's some way you can think of to improve it."
Peter Singer was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, a Nazi controlled town. As an Austrian Jew his family struggled against discrimination, barely escaping imprisonment in concentration camps. Singer grew up to receive a full education and later won countless awards for his work and books as a philosopher. Through his studies in bioethics, he became one of the founders of the animal rights movements, which started his path as an activist for many other world issues.
