“Vystopia is a brilliant summary of the second-hand suffering endured by those with the courage to see the first-hand suffering of animals for what it is: institutionalized sadism on a global scale. We must wake up the world to its own cruelty and this book offers the roadmap.”
Jane Velez-Mitchell
Author, Journalist ,
“Vystopia explores the key questions of our times - including how kind, gentle people stay sane and happy in a violent, non-vegan world - and should be read widely, especially by those in leadership positions.”
Dr Micheal Klaper
Physician, Author
"This could be the “how to” book of the 21st century. Clare Mann has identified how those suffering because of their concern for animals that endure pain can transform their anguish into meaningful action for positive change and a path to a more compassionate, caring world."
Senator Lee Rhiannon
Greens Party Senator

What is Vystopia?

A decade ago, after becoming vegan, I started speaking out for animal rights at conferences, festivals and online. Vegans came to see me directly or told their doctors they only wanted to see vegan practitioners, as their pain was undermined when they were told they had depression or not to judge the world so harshly.  I believe that they were not necessarily mentally ill but demonstrated the normal reactions of feeling human should feel after discovering the cover-up of industrialised animal abuse.

I am a telling witness to the anguish of knowing about the systematised abuse of animals in society.  I needed a name for what I believe is an existential despair, and to find solutions for vegans whilst avoiding medicalisation of the condition.

Vystopia is the name I created to explain the vegan’s experience, and this book provides a way for vegans to navigate their pain and become the necessary champions to create a more compassionate world.
