Vegan YouTubers Survey

Post by NonZeroSum » Fri Dec 08, 2017 8:11 pm

---

1. When did you go vegan? (Fun fact)

2. How would you rank these reasons for being vegan? (From your #1 top reason, to second, and third; please note if any don't apply for you at all, or if two or more are exactly tied)

Personal health (or by example, for the health of your family/friends)
Animal ethics (concern for non-human animal suffering or interests)
Societal/environmental reasons (effect on humans, and existential threats)

3. Do you condone violent animal rights or vegan activism?

4. Do you condone non-violent activism that's still illegal? E.g. theft/property damage.

5. Do you condone controversial but legal acts like shaming (or harassment like hate mail) as activism?

6. Whether or not you would eat it or regard it as healthy, do you consider "freegan" meat (from road kill, or garbage), or future in-vitro meat grown from cell cultures without animal products ("clean meat") as morally acceptable?

7. Do you take or recommend others take supplemental B-12?

It's so cool that you were motivated to put all these video resources together in such a short time on your vegan journey.

We talked about this a bit already, but I really agree that well targeted and planned civil disobedience should play a role. I've said I worry about the coherency of narratives, such as the direct action achieving the most possible, and then accepting responsibility. For example shutting down a coal plant but then coming down when the owners get a court injunction out, similar to squatting being a civil offense that raises awareness of misuse of some empty buildings. So saving as many animals in an instance as possible, accepting responsibility, and not saying you'll do it again, passing the baton on to someone else, unless you do just want to bring law enforcement down on the community unnecessarily for the sake of spectacle and martyrdom.
In 2007, six Greenpeace environmental activists climbed a 639-foot chimney at Kingsnorth coal power plant in England, intending to shut down the plant by occupying the chimney. They planned to write the words, "Gordon, bin it" on the chimney to pressure Prime Minister Gordon Brown to stop the building of new coal power plants, but after writing "Gordon," the six activists were served with an injunction and came down from the chimney. The "Kingsnorth Six," as they are called, were criminally charged for property damage; it cost 35,000 euros (equal to US $53,000 at the time) to remove the graffiti. Jurors in the case found the Kingsnorth Six "not guilty," accepting the defense arguments that the six activists had a "lawful excuse" to damage property at the Kingsnorth power station to prevent even greater damage caused by global warming (McCarthy 2008). The Criminal Damage Act of 1971 allows individuals to damage property to prevent even greater damage—such as breaking down the door of a burning house to put out a fire. James Hansen, a top NASA climate scientist, testified for the defense, and told the jury that carbon dioxide emissions from the Kingsnorth power plant would contribute to climate change. The Kingsnorth Six Greenpeace activists were acquitted of criminal charges of property damage as jurors agreed that the defendants had a "lawful excuse" for their actions.
