Re: Relating to non-vegans

That's great to hear they're making progress. If you ask them if they have any reservations, maybe we can help answer those questions/concerns. Otherwise, as long as you keep working on it with positivity they'll probably get there. It's particularly unusual for a spouse not to catch up, since you'r...

Re: Relating to non-vegans

Welcome Sam, I find myself losing respect for friends and acquaintances who are sympathetic to animal rights and healthy living but will not become vegetarian, never mind vegan. Have you tried food evangelism, and starting them off slow? If you introduce them to delicious vegan food and ask for smal...

Re: Hola from Maine.

But, I still struggle with it because it's for personal gain/use. And, sometimes ways to reduce suffering, etc. aren't always doable (fieldwork can be unpredictable). You're just having to euthanize insects, or higher animals too? Eventually, I'd like to find a way to use semiochemicals to help con...

Re: Sam Harris and Ben Shapiro Debate

I think most of your questions can be answered with two words: Gish Gallop. Why is Harris unqualified? Why do you think he's not interested in challenging people?

Re: Juche

The problem is that working together and trade promotes peace. You don't make war with a country that is a lucrative trading partner. Isolation promotes alienation and paranoia. So, I don't think Juche is very useful to international diplomacy and world peace given the eccentricities of human psycho...

Re: vegans and antropomorphism

Can you define me what do you mean by moral value? I think that will help. Probably something like: That which requires moral consideration. I think we say sentient beings are of moral value as a shorthand to say we should work to respect their interests. The interests, though, are what we're inter...
