Distract/Divide/Demoralize: Fifth Column Veganism

Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson recently wrote about “vegan purists” who criticize his organization for anti-whaling activities while doing nothing about cows, pigs, and other animals exploited by the billions. He asked such persons to take note of the aquatic focus of his organization’s name and remarked that the criticism made as much sense as if he went to an anti-bullfighting protest and asked; “what about dolphins?”

He did not refer to anyone by name, but more recently, an article on the “Great Debate” between animal rights and animal welfare by a cattle industry writer, who smugly declared his indifference to all animal concerns, indicated his satisfaction with Gary Francione, founder of the Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights, for promoting infighting among…

  1. I have been a plant-based eater for 25 years, but I do not use the word “Vegan” anymore. I have talked with too many people who view this trendy term as “religious & arrogant,” which is turning many off, who might otherwise have become meat-free. Another reason I don’t like this term, is: too many “Vegans” seem to have a very one-dimensional, even thoughtless approach to working on the many environmental problems of the world–and that is to “Go Vegan”–this is their simple- minded solution to everything. Yes, going to a plant-based diet is a must. But it is not the only thing caring people must do. I have met far too many Vegans who have no idea of what is happening in The Wild, or they just do not care.
    We must also get involved with saving Nature, wild places, wildlife. Veganism is not activism. Without Biodiversity, saving the natural, wild systems of Earth, there will be nothing, and Vegans will go down with the rest. Finally, I challenge Vegans to examine just why they call themselves Vegan. If it is just another personal “feel good thing,” or to “save farm animals”–it is not enough. And, do these Vegans face the stark realities of the soon-to-come Dark Ages? How many Vegans will “adopt” the millions of poor factory animals? These are domesticated, and they cannot go into the wild. How many Vegans will be ready to humanely euthanize the millions of domesticated animals stuck in those animal factories as society’s grids fail, and humans are warring in the streets? Such stark realities are just around the corner. It simply is not enough to be a “Happy Vegan,” while Nature disintegrates, and Climate Change worsens.
