Is taxation theft?

Is taxation theft? If yes; Why? Does taxation being theft even matter if its purpose to is prevent the erosion of the social oder? Do the actions of the government justify its "theft" if it brings good consequences? If it is theft and it is wrong, should all taxation be abolished? If no, why not? Th...

Re: Vegan chef kills his wife and children on christmas

I object to descriptions of domestic abusers as suffering from psychological problems. The real problem is he hated his wife for leaving him and took it out on her and his children. You can object all you want, but it is still highly likely that he was/is struggling with psychological and emotion c...

Re: Vegan chef kills his wife and children on christmas

ok so what are your thoughts on the terrorist cells such as the ALF,ELF and animal rights militia? They are vegan and have harmed and tried to kill people..are they not vegan ? I'm confused because so many vegans seem to support these groups Veganism is not a cult. No one, regardless of one's ethic...

Re: Vegan chef kills his wife and children on christmas

Terrible and no not saying his diet was a cause. Guy has been around the block..Just wondering how you think vegan youtubers will respond? Could see gains making a video celebrating it and others claiming this man was never vegan.. I'm not sure it's worth responding to. Putting emphasis on the fact...

Re: So what is the ultimate goal of veganism?

so is this a witch hunt? I feel you guys got this tribalism going on the "us vs them" mentality.. Guess what it doesn't paint the movement in a good light. Would you like to explain? If you are alluding to the above examples I gave, then I'd agree that those tactics are not effective. Yea the lives...

Re: So what is the ultimate goal of veganism?

You can actually taste a difference in quality in meat. Store bought beef is not nearly as tender as the game I hunt. The texture is very different as well. Have a non vegan eat some ground beef from the market then some thats free range. I bet 9 times out of ten they will prefer the taste of the f...

Re: Question: How to deal with Spider and Spider's Web inside house in a vegan manner?

I catch and release unless there is a legitimate infestation, or if the insects are harmful to me or my home, (as is the case with mosquitos, termites, bed bugs, roaches, poisonous spiders, fire ants, etc. Your well-being is more important than that of a beg bug. Any honest and consistent vegan woul...

Re: So what is the ultimate goal of veganism?

Most folk on youtube demand the absolute outlaw of eating or using animal products..which raises a few issues and is utterly silly and unrealistic. Agreed (I'm an ethical vegan). Attempting outlaw animal products is not only unreasonable and unproductive, but could even be potentially worse for the...

Re: Is it ethical or safe to neuter/spay pets?

We need to encourage early neutering/spaying because waiting until sexual maturity can often be too late. Either the dog will find a way to breed, get loose, or the owner might change his or her mind. Would this be rational? Research is showing our pets are suffering as a result of neutering too so...

Is it ethical or safe to neuter/spay pets?

Not sure if this topic has already been discussed, but I recently came across 2 epidemiological studies (published in the journal of veterinary medicine and science and PLOS ONE) which show that spaying and neutering dogs, particularly at a young age, can cause serious negative long-term health effe...
