Vegan Means Having Principle
My friend Hunter got me started as an environmentalist. He said he never took animal rights’ groups seriously. “Animals did not matter like forests, rivers and mountains”. Till he visited Prague. Learned that it’s all connected. We’re all connected. Politics = animals = our planet = our resistance to takeover by profit-before-people interests. Interests break and re-form. Vegan means having principle. Making choices that avoid consuming or profiting from animals.
“Name one other social justice movement where a simple adherence to the principles of said social justice movement is attacked by some as being “too rigid” or “extreme”.
– Andy Williams, vegan philosophy forum.
