THE FUTURE IS VEGAN. Animal agriculture is not only cruel, but is non-sustainable and contributes the most to the environmental crisis we are ALL facing. If something is the Truth; then it still appears to be Truth from any angle you look at it. Veganism meets up to this criterion. It is an answer to the global warming problem; we could easily decrease our emissions by eating vegan and more locally-grown food. It is also a solution to the problem of deforestation/land clearance, and to water pollution, and other environmental degradation. It is the solution to the world-hunger issue, it would improve overall human health issues, and obesity. It would curb violence and end war (vegans couldn't and wouldn't kill anyone). This is BIG STUFF; we could end worldwide war! Veganism is the answer to a lack of something spiritual to believe in. All religions paled in the face of veganism, in spirituality.
Vegans are often ridiculed in society. When we educate people about veganism, we are doing them a favor by espousing the benefits of a plant-based diet. There are 6 of us living together who have been vegan for over 30 years, so it obviously sustains human health, and our health is better than the average omnivore our age. We need to EDUCATE and stop the LIES to the general masses. We can feed vegan food to dangerous murderers in prisons and watch them get rehabilitated. We can feed vegan food to people in hospitals and watch them heal.
THE FUTURE IS VEGAN. Children love animals naturally until they are wrongly taught not to really love animals by their parents and society. Those who teach their children it is fine to eat animal flesh and secretions are, in actuality, lying to their children. Veganism is a GREAT TRUTH; and nothing less. Someone emailed me "vegans are intolerant". As a seeker of Truth, am I supposed to 'tolerate' humans financing the cruel abuse of animals and the destruction of Earth? A friend, and a 40 year vegan (and an incredible example), has a t-shirt he wears when going in public. It reads: THE FUTURE IS VEGAN. Thirty years ago, this same person showed me that we are taking our dogs with us on this evolutionary path, and inspired my great love of vegan dogs!

There are great rewards for anyone who commits to living in TRUTH, which veganism is the first step. It keeps coming back to TRUTH; something ALL people can follow and do for the betterment of the whole. Veganism is a Truth, I believe, for all humans. Someone had written to me that 'people's reasoning for being omnivores/meat-eaters is because humans have evolved on that diet for many thousands of years.' Or perhaps humans have 'de-evolved' on that diet to the point of self-destruction of their own species, their own planet, as well as the other species? It seems to me that the hope for humanity to create peace in the middle east, 'Peace on Earth', or possibly to even have an Earth left in the future, is by becoming vegan.
Many people say these days that veganism is 'their choice'...they use that term a lot. I don't actually see that there is 'a choice'. People have the "right" to choose "what is right". More and more supporting evidence is proving that we vegans are on the side of Truth. After 30 years of veganism, I fill with pride even more so knowing that the United Nations report 'Livestock's Long Shadow' revealed that a plant-based diet is 'Great Truth' for our time. I revel in 'The China Study' concluding that a plant-based diet is the best for humans (T. Colin Campbell wasn't a vegan when conducting the largest study on health and nutrition, but he eats and recommends a vegan diet since the study). I rejoice when Ph.D's like Dr. Will Tuttle speak up so eloquently for animals; in his popular book: The World Peace Diet, or people tell me that they've become strict vegan after reading The Pig Who Sang to the Moon; The Emotional World of Farm Animals by New York Times best-selling author Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson.
I know that some vegans living within society, feel ridicule in their daily lives for choosing to be vegan. I hope they will stay strong and feel as I do, 'proud to be on Truth's side!' Something that propels me through an overwhelming amount of insanity and something I always keep in mind is that THE FUTURE IS VEGAN.
