Re: If Donald Trump were to become a vegan, would you consider that a good thing?

I used it as an example to present the other point of view, just like Jebus probably anticipated someone would. Have no intention to derail this thread.

Re: If Donald Trump were to become a vegan, would you consider that a good thing?

. It is unlikely to delegitimate the movement as people don't tend to be so stupid that they will oppose something that is a good idea just because somebody they don't like supports it. I disagree. It's called DBA. Discredit by association. It's happening to veganism all the time. Same thing with t...

Re: Is antinatalism a valid ideology? Does it have a negative effect upon the vegan movement?

I am anti-natalist and I maintain that a carnist who decides not to breed will have lighter ecological impact than a vegan with as little as one child. Generally. There is no guarantee that a child raised in a vegan family will adopt a low-impact lifestyle (if there even is such a thing) and this tr...

Re: THEY REPEALED NET NEUTRALITY

If the Internet can be "handed over" to x, y or z: is it worth fretting about?

Re: Discussing religion with religious people

That sounds like a fun way to approach the debate Jebus :) however it seems to me that the most clueless of people happen to have pretty strong opinions. Surely you have heard this one before: It's true because it's written in the Bible. Duh. The most bulletproof argument I've ever heard is that It'...

Re: The fucked up concept of land ownership

You are both right. How can we fix this obscenity? I mean: what is the best course of action for an individual today, in order to improve the situation in the future?

Re: hello there!

Wow nice touch brimstoneSalad, thanks! Now you got me. I don't think I have a clearcut answer. Somehow I was always appalled by the waste we humans create. Wasting food in particular. I was raised in a belief that it is OK and even desirable to finish the plate after another family member if they tr...

Re: hello there!

Hi Jebus, glad you asked. It's very simple. I visit the dumpsters in the back of a big supermarket chain, and I have some "partners" in privately owned restaurants and food joints where they don't mind giving away the leftovers, trashing being the only other option (vegetarian and vegan restaurants ...

hello there!

Hello there! the philosophy in the forum name attracted me to register. I would like to start by explaining my diet choice which is no other than freegan. I am disappointed it's not included in the options because it's a great one :) I always thought the smalltalk about where one is from, how old, w...
