Reply to an excuse not to be vegan: 'The inuits can't be vegan?

When discussing veganism, some people start asking 'What about the inuits'?
Here are some good responses:
Gary L. Francione: The Abolitionist Approach to Animal Rights Dave Watt: First of all, your assertion is false. The Inuits have a great deal of their food shipped in and have been doing so for some years now. Second, even if your assertion were true, it would, at best, make animal use excusable. It would not make animal use justifiable. Third, even if your assertion were true, itr would be completely irrelevant to the 99.99% of the population that chooses to eat animal foods.

  • NZ Vegan May I suggest to Dave and Fjaton that they stop worrying about the Inuit people and start focusing on themselves.

    "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself" - Tolstoy said that.

    If YOU care about animals, Dave and Fjaton, and YOU are experiencing some kind of troubled thoughts about what is happening to them, the first step is for YOU to stop doing it to them. If you didn't care then you wouldn't be here asking these questions.
  • Sarah K. Woodcock If I were an Inuit person, I would be offended that a caricature of my ethnicity was constantly being used as an excuse to justify the exploitation and murder of billions of sentient beings per year.
    Sarah K. Woodcock Fjaton Lukos, did you know Professor Francione just published a book which addresses the sorts of questions you are asking? I highly recommend it:
