Like all social movements veganism is complex and contains many currents. But it is unique in the sense that membership in the movement involves a consequential change in personal behavior. So many so-called “movements” ask nothing more of us than to send in a donation. In those cases we are asked to stand on the sidelines, the important actions are taken by professionals and we are only a source of funding. But veganism is different. To participate you must actually act to eliminate your participation in the cruelty industrial complex.
