We've all had that daydream. You know the one. Your obnoxious meat breath colleague is explaining how Vegans kill more animals than omnivore through habitat destruction for mango plantations?? Suddenly he is knocked out by a flying copy of the China Study...
How do we remain carbed up and classy, and restrain from harpooning willful meat eaters with our smoothy jugs? In New Zealand, where sheep torture was the chief industry, until the Hobbits took over, finding another Vegan is like finding a Giraffe on a golf course. I am so grateful to the internet and 30BAD for the feeling of acceptance, support, unity and motivation it provides. When Im feeling isolated and overwhelmed,I can come here and my Datorade is half full.
Generation V (the Vegan community) is no longer a subversive subculture of straightedge punks flinging ketchup outside Mc Fuctards.(90s teen Vegan antics). Veganism is on the mainstream map! ( president Clinton briefly ffs). Sports stars , entertainers, public figures and social media icons are waking up, carbing up and finally seeing the Rhinoceros in the living room. The ticking time bomb of meat, dairy and pharmaceutical industries playing devils advocate with the planet.
Generation V is about compassion , truth, and action. so when ever you feel alone and frustrated, keep carbed and classy, but also take action. I felt like taking action today when stuck driving behind a 'freezing works' truck. That is what they call the slaughterhouse in NZ as if the euphemism has anything to do with whacking and Macking innocent sentient beings. I wanted so much to develop a superpower, and stop the truck and free the sheep. by living Vegan, and schooling friends family, and colleagues on the truth,by whatever means possible ( apart from throwing our smoothie jugs), we can do something to save the animals, the planet, our health and humanity itself.
