Some person claimed that we shouldn't feel sad if a person exploiting animals on a regularly basis die. All non-vegans are exploiting animals on a regularly basis for palatable pleasure/convenience.
that I for a long time have tried to live a moral life, it took me
almost 28 years to realize that it is wrong to kill animals for food,
and that veganism is a necessity for an ethical lifestyle. If I would
have encountered arguments like this, I think I would have become a
vegan much quicker: http://articles.philly.com/2009-08-14/news/24986151_1_atlanta-falcons-quarterback-vick-illegal-dog-dog-fights
think that the death of a sentient being always is sad, including the
death of humans. I think that we can love someone despite the violence
that that person is causing to others, and causing to himself or
herself. I would e.g. mourn if someone died of my non-vegan family or
friends. I don’t think it attracts our non-vegan friends to claim we
shouldn't feel sad if they would die. I really hope it isn’t true that
we wouldn’t be sad.
me veganism has led me to feel more love and empathy to animals,
including humans, on this planet. Of course I am deeply saddened by the
exploitation my non-vegan friends are inflicting upon the animals, and
their inability to demonstrate love and empathy toward the animals that
they choose to exploit for animal products, but I can still love them.
