c'est ma vie: Why Veganism is Bullshit. »

theseductionartist:

First of all, Veganism is crap because if vegans truly cared about animals they’d realize that’s massive plant-based diet requires the destruction of habitat to create human food from an agricultural point of view. Destroying habitat means, oh my god, destroying the homes of animals you’d like to…

I guess everyone should bow down to you for having such unique and ground-breaking insight into a movement that’s been around for decades!  

Veganism is about reducing the suffering and exploitation of animals as much as one can.   Industrial agriculture, indeed, destroys native habitats (permaculture is the ideal subsistence strategy, but could never feed 7 billion).  Growing food for livestock compounds the habitat destruction by 5- to 10-fold.  By removing animals and animal by-products for our diet, we are reducing the land and energy and water required to grow our food.  It is not perfect, but it is far better than doing nothing.

I’m not even vegan, but you don’t deserve to feel any sort of satisfaction from your abrasive rant.

Full of Life: Red Meat: It Does the Body Good »

littl3lives:

Chris Kresser recently did a post on the health benefits of red meat. The general population seems to fear red meat because we have been misinformed - told that it will clog our arteries and give us heart disease, cancer and an array of other health problems which ultimately lead to death.

this guy makes a lot of money off hawking the “paleo” diet.  i wouldn’t trust his analysis to be remotely objective.

and even if this all were true, red meat is an environmental and ethical blight.  

we should always be wary of articles that tell us exactly what we want to hear.

My truths, my world, my experience: Thoughts on existence and analysis of ways of being »

introskeptic:

Attachment to form will always lead to unpleasant states, because of the reality of impermanence. Everything will eventually fall apart, every action, every word will be lost in nothingness, the entropy of the universe will always be increasing creating more and more disorder (Second Law of…

i don’t see the middle way as a denial or shroud of our senses, but more the opposite: i feel the middle way suggests a pure experience of all phenomenon, mental and physical. our perception is always inflamed by judgement and expectation, and to remove those is to end suffering.

to me, it is strolling through an art gallery, appreciating each piece instead of thinking “i like this one” “i don’t like that one”.

perhaps you don’t have to suffer from the absurdity of life, but endure it without judgement?

Vegans/vegetarians.

spanxtolace:

Sometimes I don’t get them.

Why won’t you eat dairy!?!?

The whole process of diary actually helps the animal. Without milk being extracted, their utters would explode and cause a lot of pain for the cow. I’ve seen it first hand and it is heartbreaking. I have vowed to always make a conscious effort to consume dairy for the sake of diary cows lives.

EAT DAIRY! Seriously, I don’t know why you guys don’t.

you don’t like cows, you like cheese.

this is the same mentality as “consciously” buying sweatshop-produced goods to keep the laborers employed.

After talking with Courtney about all the angry vegans I looked around and

“The truth is that agriculture is the most destructive thing humans have done to the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. The truth is that agriculture requires the wholesale destruction of entire ecosystems….

if all current farmland devoted to feeding animal stock were re-appropriated to plant-based human consumption, there would be more than enough food. and doing so in a regenerative way can heal the soil, air, and seas.

don’t justify your inaction with easy lies… and spell “vegetarian” correctly.

Excuse my simple miss spelling, and what exactly is a “regenerative way”? 

regenerative agriculture means farming land with the added goal of repairing the environment in the process, not simply producing food: making the soils richer, absorbing carbon dioxide, cleaning aquifers, encouraging biodiversity, etc.

basically, it means leaving the environment BETTER than you found it, not worse:

the exact opposite of current agriculture.

West Coast: Vegan Religion! An ideology of hate. An escapism...A first world problem. »

westcoastconservative:

So getting back to religion…

The latest most popular “religion” among people between the ages of 14-40 is vegetarianism and, at the extreme end, “veganism.”

Vegetarians usually begin their quest against meat for dietary or health reasons. There are some people who do it for direct religious…

yikes, what a rambling vacuum of knowledge by an insecure author who must have recently had their feelings hurt by a conscientious and informed eater, and who is neither an expert or novice in any relevant field of study.

I hope they self-soothed themselves and keep their mind open despite their username and attitude.
