Should I abandon my morals and join society’s customs of suffering? Who voraciously consumes the flesh and fat of our fellow sentients for no reason beyond a gluttonous palate. Or do I submit to sympathy and remain a vegan among the flesheaters, a solitary among the civilized?
“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.” ~Leo Tolstoy
Should I pledge allegiance to a government that rules by oppression, robbing its people, their money, education, privacy, freedom, and rights? Who sends our young and innocent to kill and die on foreign soil– Not in defense of Motherland! But to satiate its corporate-military exorbitance. Or do I withhold my participation, remain an anarchist among the nationalists, a feral among the patriots?
The state lieth in all languages of good and evil; and whatever it saith it lieth; and whatever it hath it hath stolen. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
Should I allow my conscience its principles, or yield to the sway of acceptability, the mob mentality?
Veganarchism is the political philosophy of veganism (more specifically animal liberation) and anarchism, creating a combined praxis as a means for social revolution. This encompasses viewing the state as unnecessary and harmful to animals, both human and non-human, whilst practicing a vegan lifestyle. ~Wikipedia.org
