Why Do People React So Strongly When We Raise Veganism?

In a world where there seems to be so much conflict and veganism offers the basis for not contributing to the violence, why do people react so strongly when we talk about veganism? This topic and a wide range of what it is to be vegan (and remain strong and sane) in a non-vegan world is explored on this podcast Your Vegan Friend Tonia.

Embracing a Wider Definition of Veganism to include Humans

Since March 2020 I have been running a series of webinars entitled, Second Stage Vystopia: What Else Don’t We Know with Mark Doneddu (founder of World Vegan Day Melbourne and President of Veg Vic Australia).

We recently pre-recorded an interview with Derrick Broze of the Conscious Resistance Network. Derrick is a freelance investigative journalist, documentary film maker, author, and public speaker who seeks to expose corruption, find solutions to the problems that affect all humanity, and promote localisation and decentralisation.

Derrick is a vegan and his focus is on exposing the wider application of non-violence towards others. He explains how we can use this in all areas of our lives—our health, relationships, politics, and society—in order to create a world in which we all wish to belong.

In this 60-min conversation, we cover:

  • Polarisation and division in the vegan community;
  • The cost of focusing on one area of liberation whilst ignoring the bigger picture;
  • A brief history of oppression and how 2020 events are furtherance of a model that is millennia-old.;
  • How Agorism and Freedom Cells can help us prepare for the imminent changes that intend to reduce our freedoms even further.

Both Mark and I finished this interview feeling hopeful and inspired that current world events are actually inviting us to embrace a wider definition of veganism to include humans. This might sound obvious, but the non-aggression principle of Agorism  invites vegans to extend their compassion to all humans, and encourages non-vegans to include animals in all aspects of the non-initiation of violence.

If you are ready to play your part in the solution to truly create animal and human liberation, it’s worth exploring Agorism and the non-initiation of force in more depth. It is a completely different way of thinking and acting, to break away from the millennia-long oppression that continues to cause animal and human slavery.
