Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Jebus, I don't really know what's going on in India, but I know Venezuelan government prevents the charities from giving money to the poor people there.

Re: Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Most of the poor live under tyrannical governments, 360 million people live under the poverty line in India. Would you call this a tyrannical government? Regardless of corruption, why is it that you think that someone living under a tyrannical government would benefit less from a measles vaccinatio...

Re: New member!!

Welcome. Awesome that you made the realization at such a young age. It took me 35 years and the last 15 years I've felt like a piece of shit because of it.

Notre Dame- an example of altruism at its worst

Here is the question I want to ask all the benevolent people who are donating all that money to the restoration of Notre Dame: Over a million people died last year from mosquito bites because they couldn't afford nets and other protections. Were you not aware of this or did you not think this was im...

Re: Hey there.

Welcome. What prompted you to go vegan at such a young age? Do you have any vegan friends already involved in activism?

Is it just because I'm vegan and honey is an animal product? Because that's not a valid reason.

The vegan position on honey is inconsistent and just arbitrary.
There is no "vegan position" on honey. There is great disagreement among vegans on this issue, and some even agree with what you just wrote.

Re: Hello

Welcome hiirhiir, it made me question my entire way of life and whether I'm lying to myself. Because keeping pets is really what gives my life meaning. Same for me. I live with eight dogs and I couldn't imagine life without them. Would you agree that, henceforth, the superior choice would be to adop...
