Vegans against violence; veganism is nonviolence, Ahimsa
is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to
other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and
nonviolence to yourself.” ~ Gary L Francione
It troubles me
when I see vegans calling violent retribution on those who harm animals.
I fail to see how it is possible to reconcile advocating violence
against one species of sentient beings (humans) while advocating
nonviolence against others. Furthermore, such comments achieve nothing
except to provide ammunition for those with an interest in opposing
veganism and what it stands for.
"Violence is the problem; it is not any part of the solution." ~ Gary L. Francione
