I shared an article called This Is Why Vegans Should Stop Being Mean to Vegetarians (Ari Solomon, Mercy For Animals) on facebook group Friendly and Pragmatic Vegans and Vegetarians. I would like to share a few replies to the stimulating conversation which followed, trusting they will be inspiring and heart warming.

I liked your article Vincent.

Also just read this one:
http://veganstrategist.org/2016/04/18/what-if-the-real-push-towards-a-vegan-world-did-not-come-from-vegans/

The in-fighting & perfectionism etc. pushes plenty of people away from wanting to have anything to do with it, whether at the start or after a while.

Accidently vegan?

Yeah, the accidently vegan thing or whatever it's termed (including animal-like products but not from animals) seems likely some best-hope. I like that non-vegans are contributing a bunch of the funding toward those products, and that non-vegans are opening vegan restaurants, etc. I dislike this whole "point out the hypocrisy" emphasis among some people. I read somewhere recently about a 'vegan meal' rather than 'a vegan' being a better emphasis, which I also liked. Way-so-many people are going to have an extra vegan meal, and then another, than are going to ever want to "be a vegan".

Way-so-many *more* people will have a vegan meal (etc.), than the number who'll 'be vegan', so yeah I think that's a better emphasis for efforts. Anyway, good evening.

Another article on an interesting topic this week...

http://veganstrategist.org/2016/04/26/let-them-eat-labmeat-an-interview-with-professor-cor-van-der-weele/

This Dutch professor said: "The development of cultured meat implies that we accept that people like meat, while we hope to produce it without doing harm to animals."

And later on: "It’s important to realize that change does not necessarily need to start with clear moral attitudes. In some cases, people adopt attitudes that accompany the behavior that they are already demonstrating."
