Why bother going vegan? Aren’t there a million more important things to worry about? What about world peace? What about poverty? What about human suffering? What about plant suffering?

Where Have All The Good Men Gone?
”Michael Vick is a convicted felon. Plaxico Burress is a convicted felon. Leonard Little is a convicted felon. Ray Lewis was found guilty of obstructing justice in a double murder investigation.

“Let me say it openly: we are surrounded by an enterprise of degradation, cruelty, and killing which rivals anything the Third Reich was capable of, indeed dwarfs it, in that ours is an enterprise without end, self-regenerating, bringing rabbits, rats, poultry, livestock ceaselessly into the world for the purpose of killing them. And to split hairs, to claim that there is no comparison,...

”However much Anti-Vegans try to discredit, mock, and trivialize veganism, their criticisms remain unreasonable and cannot touch the Truth of what this lifestyle is all about: compassion. But they will continue to try, and in doing so reveal their own fears and exaggerations rather than some inherent flaw they’re hoping to uncover in a philosophy that at its core seeks not perfection but...

Rau Om's mind-blowing new vegan cheese; you must...
vegansaurus: I just tried this Tofu Misozuke cheese from Rau Om spread on some whole grain crackers and it was SO DAMN GOOD. Well, not that exactly. What had happened was, when it first arrived, I greedily ripped open the packaging, cut off an enormous chunk, and stuffed it straight in my maw. Then, I spit it out because it was DAMN POTENT. I then read the accompanying information and saw...

tommyxvx: Confirming what a lot of you suspected (in my ask box). I didn’t get to say all of what I wanted, my mind is racing right now because I never thought this day would come and it’s hard to condense everything I’m thinking in a video. But, hey, maybe my arguments are valid now. How dairy cows are raped. Why rape is rape is rape is rape. No questions, please.
