    Isaac Bashevis Singer has some good quotes. This one is my favorite. (I think I even used it as my sig at one time) "When a human being kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is unwilling to extend it to others. Why then should man expect mercy from God? It is unfair to expect something that you are not willing to give."

    Plus, the garden of Eden. We are herbivores that along the way developed a taste for dead animal flesh.

    The soul is simply the inner you… your mind, will and emotions. Do you have those things? If so, if you have a soul. Or more accurately, you are a soul. I think some people get the soul mixed up with the spirit.

    Obviously I wouldn't work for a company that demanded that. And it's extremely far-fetched, but if they all did that, it wouldn't matter because I have my own company, and I never want to go back to working for someone else anyway. I like being able to choose who I work with.

    Yes, I think we all agree that people are free to associate with who they want to associate with, and if they don't like a company's policies, find another place to work. As for influencing people, I see it differently. For example, when it comes to religion/faith, there are tons of scriptures throughout the Bible about sharing the Gospel, being a witness, taking the good news to the ends of the earth, etc. As for other things, thereís nothing wrong with trying to influence people, as long as no one is forced, and as long as it is done in an appropriate way. I'm sure there are many here who believe that we should try to influence people toward the message of liberty. The media/schools/powers-that-be are sure doing a good job influencing people in the opposite direction, so if we sit around and do nothing, how do we expect anything to ever change? But that's just what I believe, and I know that we all have different roles or 'callings' so maybe it's not for everyone.

    I didn't read the whole article, but it seems to me that they simply removed it from the food they serve at events and suchÖ That is very different than telling people what to do on their own time. But if it was the latter, then I would agree with you.

    I kind of got that vibe from AF. But anyway, yes, let the free market work. It reminds me of a well-known cafť in England that recently took dairy completely off their menu, after watching the viral video "Dairy is scary." If people don't like that decision, they can take their business somewhere else. I haven't heard how their business is doing, but with all the attention they got for that, they probably got a ton more business for doing it.

    Why are you angry about what a private company does? You're not implying that they don't have the right to decide what to serve or not serve, are you? I for one applaud them for no longer offering decaying corpses on their menu.

    Nope, itís hype and misunderstanding. The problem is that people wrongly assume that soy contains estrogenÖ It has phytoestrogen, which is not the same thing and operates in a completely different way. It actually prevents against certain types of cancer, and no it doesn't do anything weird to your body. The ironic thing about this is that DAIRY contains actual estrogen, so the very people who say they donít want to eat soy usually have no problem with eating loads of dairy, which shows how idiotic the whole thing is.

    You took me too literally. When I said "we're all" I basically meant both sides of the aisleÖ If he is merely playing the part of a conservative/nationalist, then both the left are being deceived, as well as his supporters, who think he is the savior here to truly make America great again. I didn't mean every single one of us. :)

    I think it's truth mixed with lies. I'm not buying that Trump is the SaviorÖ who somehow got in, even though it seems pretty clear by now that no one can get to that level without being part of 'the club.' I'm sorry to sound pessimistic, but I get the feeling that we're all being deceivedÖ But we'll see.

    I was talking about ZoŽ Schlanger, just in case there was any confusion. As for what Tabor said about plants, from my perspective thatís an odd thing to say. I mean, when we look at natural plant foods from the earth, itís pretty obvious which ones are edible. And to many of us, especially those of us who believe in God, itís obvious that those foods were meant to be eaten, they were designed as food. But at the same time, not all plants are edible... or meant to be edible. So I donít know why she would say that in that tweetÖ not sure what her point is. Who ever argued that all parts of plants are edible? Also, I was reading some more of her tweets, and sheís posting some misleading information. It takes far more water to produce meat, because not only do you have to give the animals water, but the food they eat also requires water, and from what I saw she left that part completely out. The reality is, a vegetarian or vegan diet is far better for the environment, for a number of reasons. Thatís pretty much common knowledge, and Iíve never seen anyone argue that (other than Danno maybe)... But I guess her main point is not so much that meat-eating is better, but that diet should go along with the land/environment one lives in?

    I say no, itís not colonialist or Eurocentric for a few reasons. First of all, vegetarianism is not inherent to any one place, itís not a European concept. The most vegetarian country in the world by far is India. If anything, itís more linked to spiritual beliefs (for example, Jainism, Hinduism, some sects of Buddhism, some Rastafarians, etc.) Again, itís not a western thing or an idea inherent to any one area. Veganism (which is different than vegetarianism, but the article is about vegetarianism) is an international movement, it is becoming popular all over the world. Secondly, itís a grassroots type of thing. People are becoming vegan mainly because of the internet and word-of-mouth. Because now we can see with our own eyes what is going on in slaughterhouses and the animal industries, due to undercover cameras, etc. So, it canít be colonialist if it is growing all over the place, among regular people, in a word of mouth way. Itís not being forced on anyone, people are merely seeing the truth and spreading the word. As for what the author said about vegetarianism/veganism not being practical in certain parts of the world, because of the terrain and limited water... as the tweet posted in that article said, who is arguing that vegetarianism should start with indigenous herders?

    No, it's not, because I haven't seen that. What I do see from vegans who have an activist mindset is the push to change public opinionÖ Through videos, documentaries, social media, public speaking, going out on the street and handing out booklets, also creative types of activism like bringing laptops to a public place and showing people slaughterhouse footage, or like this guy, going on a year long vow of silence to raise awareness. And of course marches, protests and stuff like that. I honestly think that even the most hard-core activist vegans are wise enough to understand that forcing people to change doesn't work. I'm sure there are groups (like PETA) trying to influence legislators to make things better for the animals through legislation...But I haven't seen anyone trying to make eating meat illegal. So let's not go into paranoid territory. ;) Things are definitely changing, because veganism is growing like crazy all around the worldÖ So there will be changes because of good ol supply and demand, and changing public opinionÖ Not because of forceful laws.

    True, so maybe a better word would have been something like "compartmentalization" or DoubleThink. But there are meat eaters who fall into the category you mentioned... And that's actually a good thing, because that discomfort is usually what causes them to re-think what they're doing. It was that way for me.
