Vegans are always lamenting over the bad treatment toward nonhuman animals by humans (the human animal).
We’re all animals, so why no camaraderie toward other species? Why no professional courtesy?
The vegans trolling Facebook are always angry at the human, why, why, why, followed by bad-name-slinging and insults. Yet, when they’re criticized they can’t handle it. They run like the little mischief-making trolls they are back to a safe place.
If these trolls are really vegan, and you know that in this world they weren’t always vegan and even when they became vegan, they slipped up plenty of times just because it’s impossible to be totally vegan in a world that has yet to accept it. So all they had to do was retrace their own steps. Retrace the process. Then go back and think about how they wanted to be treated before they even knew anything about other animals deserving rights. They think, erroneously, that abusing a person will make that person do what they want them to do, while at the same time wanting to be their sponsor. It’s like raping someone then asking them out for a date in a rape culture.
It doesn’t work that way. Even if it worked for some of them, it won’t last, because all it does is make the abused want to abuse others like they were abused. It eventually becomes nothing about the cause and everything about the ego of the individual human wanting to be the one who forces change, because change was forced on them.
Yes, some actually treat the adoption of veganism like the adoption of sobriety or getting clean. They can’t stay a vegan unless they’re sponsoring other might-be vegan candidates, helping them along the process, but doing it in an abusive way. Vegans, like alcohol and drug addicted humans, fall off the wagon – a lot. They prefer to call it cheat. But it is what it is – a giving into temptation. And temptation is everywhere, more so than alcohol or drugs. I mean it is everywhere.
You don’t need to go to confession by telling the whole world you had a non-vegan meal when you ate out at a restaurant, because they didn’t serve vegan and all your friends wanted to go where the crowd goes and they like the food and drink.
When you’re brought up your entire life eating, wearing, using, other animals, and after you see the light of reality upon your own awakening, and everybody else is still doing what you now know to be horribly wrong, and you can’t convince them, because they haven’t woken to your understanding, because they do what they’ve always done, and nobody is going to tell them not to, because they can’t tolerate being wrong, then accept your role as the awakened – not the awakener.
Nobody awakened you, no matter how vehement you are in your own knowing that a specific event was responsible for you becoming a vegan. That is extremely rare. That would be like you not paying attention to any part of your life, because after all animals were apart of all of it, for your entire life, and suddenly some external event like being kissed by a toad woke you up to the rights of animals.
Oh it was a film. What, you blindly went to see a film that nobody talked about prior to you seeing it, you didn’t know the title nor what it was about, somebody blind-folded you, kidnapped you and planted you in a movie theatre and forced you to watch a movie about animal rights? They even had a gun to your head?
Wow, why didn’t you add that part to your story? It would have been a lot more interesting. But I’m sure that once safe, you forgot all you promised to your captors in order to gain your release and have only bad memories and worse nightmares about the entire encounter. You did fear for your life didn’t you? Blindfolded, kidnapped, guns, forced to watch a slaughter movie?
Did your kidnappers all want to be your sponsor, tell you how to withdraw from the flesh and blood, especially milk that makes the cheese, seemingly all by itself in the back of the grocery store? Did they say they’d be there for you, and how healthy you’d be, and confident and slim and fit and the animals will love you, and this is really all about compassion, and they’re sentient beings, after all.
[You really need to scratch that elitist word. Non-vegans don’t know what it means. It’s not your job to send them to a dictionary. Feeling animals, emotional animals, animals with nervous systems, animals who feel pain when abused. Anything but sentient. Stop being so lazy with language, where you want only one word to describe a complex process. Why don’t you call humans sentient beings?].
Did they tell you where the animal-eaters anonymous meetings are held on a regular basis – in your town? Did they all give you their cell phone numbers to call them when you’re tempted?
It was an indoctrination.
Do you like being abused? Do you like it when people rub your nose into the dirt, when you’re wrong about something?
Do you have a conscience? Oh, you’ll stop abusing them when they become vegan?
Please, please, all they have to do is stop hurting the animals, and I won’t hurt them. I’ll help them even.
I don’t know who came up with this theory of change and how to make others do what you want them to do, but I can guarantee that the government played a role, for the purpose of failure not success. The elite are the most easily manipulated.
Psychological torture, physical torture. You’re a long way on the continuum of the Five Principles: prejudice leads to discrimination; discrimination leads to enslavement; enslavement leads to torture; torture leads to slaughter if left unchecked. You’re all the way to torture. No prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. These principles developed by Sharon Lee Davies-Tight are a proven reality of cause and effect, action and reaction.
The first thing you can do to continue on your vegan journey is to get off that high horse you’ve been sitting on for way too long. That horse doesn’t belong to you. The horse belongs to itself. That horse does not like you.
I rest my case.
Don’t ask me. I don’t want to add lazy to your list of flaws. Figure it out for yourself. If you can torture, then you can find a non-torture method to achieve the same end.
