Re: Thoughts on a Vegan/Freegan Activist Advice Summary?

• Forage and glean food on public paths or where there will be no perceptible difference to farmers (keep in mind safety advice in the section on foraging). Wait, stealing? That doesn't sound right. Gleaning refers to taking the leftover food after the harvest like corn cobs that didn't get picked ...

Re: Hi I am from Singapore.

More of a "They weren't evil, just a product of their times and these things made sense then, but times have changed" kind of thing.

Re: Hi I am from Singapore.

Mmm I'm sure it's true of some tribal situation somewhere in history, it's just such murky territo...

Re: Hi I am from Singapore.

Not so when extra meat is being donated (something that may have gone to waste). Aye, would just be curious if there became so large a monastic class not looking for ways to earn to live vegan, that people spent longer out fishing or in today's more affluent society bought more meat to be ready eac...

Re: Hi I am from Singapore.

Early Buddhists often relied on donations of food, so strict vegetarianism wasn't always practicable for them when they had no money. Potentially, though a monastic class may have propped up the same level of meat production. Traditionally they believed the person who did the killing has the sin, s...

Re: Hi I am from Singapore.

Hi, I have been following Theraveda Buddhist teachings for many years and my friend has recently introduced Nichiren Shoshu buddhist teachings to me and it really conflicts with what I have learnt so far. Hope to get more clarity and learn from others. Welcome Lilith, Is your friend also vegan? I'd...

Re: Racism in Veganism - 2018 Year in Review

Are these people, with their online presence, actually important in the vegan movement? They are not the ones quoted in the media, and they are not mentioned on other vegan forums I post on other than this one. I personally never noticed vegan racism. One forum I post on it is the opposite - like s...
