To the vacillating vegan, non-vegan, and other contemplators,

Your objection to veganism isn’t with vegan cuisine. Seventy percent of what you already eat comes from plants. The remaining thirty percent you can fill with vegan meats, fish, and dairy substitutes that are nutritious, delicious, mouth-watering fares that even the most partisan non-vegan would proclaim as absolutely amazing in an honest appraisal.

No, your reaction to veganism is the result of your social conditioning. Attitudes adjust to appease the consensus in all but the most liberated mind.

To be a vegan, you have only not to give a Fuck, with a capital F.

Misdirected fucks for what your family, friends, and other people think of your life’s choices, is an individual’s epic failure, the antithesis of individual freedom. And that’s kind of a big deal.

Had I known then, I’d be playing the violin today. A vegan, anarchist, violinist. Ah, has a rather seductive flair to it; don’t you think, ladies?

  1. Who can claim to be an enlightened soul and a corpse consumer? How many religions claim to offer the meaning of birth. life, and eternity — then join in “Fellowship” by discussing the sermon while eating dead animals? Cheese Lovers for World Peace, anyone? I’ve heard that the Apostles were fishers of men, but not cannibals of course. Well, I recognize no difference between human-flesh eaters and sentient-animal-flesh eaters. What is this difference? Why are you so adamant about that? However, there is an enormous difference between a flesh eater and a plant eater, they are lightyears apart. Why are animals with a failing organ never offered a human organ?

    1. A valid point, Bill. Nothing is the difference between the two flesh-eaters. Other than their mindset, it is the same carnal craving. Or, is their desire of a twisted spiritual influence? Are these humans genetically defective? Or, does their appetite go beyond social conditioning to say they are possessed of an unseen evil? Either way, the results are the same, and their hypocrisy remains paramount to whatever they are, defective or possessed.

      1. Sir Lardchain Topper shrugs, mehs, chews and then swallows a body part. You show Topper a chart with all the familiar organs functioning to keep a cow, a pig, a chicken, a whale alive:
        brain, eyes, ears, lips, tongue, lungs, heart, arteries, veins, skin, stomach, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, bladder, intestines, pain sensors…
        Sir Lardchain Topper shrugs, mehs, chews and swallows another body part.
        Then he gives you a shit-eating grin.

  2. We are first and foremost instinctive, social animals. To go ‘against the grain’ is deeply troubling and perhaps detrimental to our evolved survival strategy; it’s impossible to un-program that.

    It’s why the vegan anarchy approach to making people change their behavior is a failure. People have to want to change, and to that end, they must first see the value in it.

    1. I don’t think that’s enough, seeing the value in it, typically. I’m honored to work with some highly intelligent people five days a week. They are aware of the earth’s woes and admit the value of correct behavior. But still, most of them, their day-to-day habits never change. Though there are a few making headways, it’s sometimes encouraging.

  3. I especially enjoy 😣 all their loud squawking about how leaving out the hot dogs and bacon and eating more whole plant foods has plunged them into a world of pain and malnutrition, the likes of which not even seen in the world’s most malnourished and starving regions. On a positive note, I recently heard in the news that many non-vegetarians now prefer veggie burgers when there’s a choice, since they taste so good, and the decent people out there will choose to avoid animal abuse and slaughter when they can. I think those are on their way to being vegan someday. Great article, sorry I haven’t checked in for awhile.

    1. Like an addict kicking the habit, the shock of decontamination sends them into painful withdrawal. Or, they’re just spewing shit.

      I know a few non-vegetarians here at work who indulge in vegan fare for lunch and love it. Encouraging.

      It’s good to hear from you again.

  4. Too any people are lazy thinkers, they don’t think about anything much really and certainly can’t be bothered questioning their own deeply ingrained habits, they just want an easy life, and to be left alone, not caring much for anything outside their own personal comfort and wants. There’s all this information out there and they don’t want to look at it, don’t want to find out the truth, about anything.
