Principia Carnivora is a group that was created by Michael Frieze and Esmée La Fleur.


The fundamental difference between this group and all the rest is the type of community that we are. We are a discussion platform where we share our thoughts and experiences about our carnivorous diets and lifestyle (even if that does include some plants). What makes us unique is that we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach and our foundation is based on humility. In this community, the mystery is greater than the answer.

We aren't really focused on being a support group with a "guru" vibe. There are plenty of other groups for that. We don't have a meal plan for people to follow.

In some ways, we are more laid back and in others we are strict. For example, people have to be careful about making absolute claims or generalizations. You will likely get asked to clarify and support your claim. However, we are more laid back when it comes to certain topics that people want to discuss. It is okay to ask questions here and be skeptical. Also, WE don't "promote" things here. We just discuss whatever we want as long as we mostly stay on topic. Each person is responsible for themselves.

Our moderating style is very much based on practical wisdom. We don't have a lot of rules and we prefer it that way. However, make sure you read the rules.

Finally, I think this quote by Ken Kesey sums it up nicely: “The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer. They think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer.”

There are no rewards for giving us dontations. Our community is free for everyone and nothing is exclusively based on donations. If you spend some time in the community and have a little extra cash to spare, then we really do appreciate your generosity.

Goals
7 of 100 patrons
The goal is keep on supporting PC and I sincerely appreciate the contributions. Also, I am currently working to build the new Principia Carnivora App (I don't have a name for it yet).

This application does a few things. Firstly, it acts as a food diary that you can publicly share. You can also make it private if that is what you prefer. Being able to share these details will improve the discussion in our FB group and it will reduce conjecture when people are seeking advice.

Secondly, there will be a vendor page where people can connect with vendors. It is for anyone out there looking to buy or provide goods that fit with this animal foods lifestyle. Not just for food, but stuff like tallow soap, clothing, etc.. Of course, I will be somewhat selective about who can advertise on there.

Finally, there will be an "Advanced Care Plan" page that can help you have a better relationship with your local health care.

This was just a quick summary. There is a lot more to it and even more features!
