05 Jan Why A Vegan World Is Unstoppable!…
A Vegan World is unstoppable. The only question is whether we choose:
Option A: (Vegan World 2026!) the world goes Vegan in the next few years, by 2026, for ethical reasons and to preserve the remaining biodiversity of the planet, or
Option B: (Vegan at 1 Billion) the world goes Vegan in a more leisurely fashion, with peak meat consumption achieved in 2030, a 50% reduction in meat and dairy consumption by 2040, etc., even as most wildlife and a large fraction of humanity perish around the carnivorous “victors” in this competitive system of normalized violence. A prominent environmentalist once told me that the world will not go vegan until the human population is down to 1 Billion. Therefore, Option B implements the mainstream colonialist perspective on Veganism, not as an ethical stance, but as a dietary preference, wielded as a tool to regulate the ongoing ecocide and climate/health-related slow genocide on this planet.
Our so called political “leaders” – shame on them! – appear to be pursuing Option B but as the Earth burns, please remember the immortal words of Elie Weisel:
”What hurts the victim most is not the cruelty of the oppressor, but the silence of the bystander.”
Therefore, let us resolve never to be silent on this issue! Besides Option B is not a sustainable option either. Indeed, in the worst case, as Elon Musk and a few of his friends escape to Mars in a last ditch Option C (Vegan on Mars), as and when our hubristic implementation of Option B spirals out of control, Mr. Musk and his fellow Cosmonauts would have to go Vegan on Mars anyway, wouldn’t they? Surely, they are not planning to take along “Cowmanouts” to Mars for Mr. Musk to milk?
Therefore, a Vegan World is absolutely unstoppable.
Now that we have established that a Vegan World is absolutely unstoppable, isn’t it better that we get to a Vegan World by transforming ourselves intentionally? This is why I contend that the only sensible option is Option A (Vegan World 2026!). And the best part is that for choosing Option A, we don’t have to get permissions from anybody.
