“I truly believe that anyone who supports the cruelty and/or death of these animals is either in denial or just chooses to ignore their own unethical behavior.”

“The animal industries want everyone to believe that vegans want to digress into primitive technology. This simply is not the case. Indeed animal agriculture will keep us in yesterdays inefficient and unhealthy doomed practices.”

“A very wise gentleman, Pythagoras, had this to say:  ‘The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter; only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass. As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.'”

“There is no way of consuming any animal product if you want to be ethical. If we believe that it’s morally wrong to harm innocent beings, if we claim that we mustn’t inflict unnecessary suffering, then we have to live as vegans. We cannot deny that.”

“The reality is that we massacre millions of intelligent and social animals with genetic code more similar than different to our own.”

These are just some of the quotes I pulled from the comment section of the article, “On Armchairs and Vegans.” Be sure to read it, along with the comments.  You can read the original article and comments here.

I’m interested to hear what ya’ll think.
