On “Selective Veganism” – A Brief Response To The Metro. https://t.co/Z7cEkQaQ5Q
If one of your arguments against ethical veganism is that “selective veganism is way more sociable if your friend [sic] aren’t vegan” then you’ve already discredited yourself from being taken seriously. This sort of anti-morality, ‘i’m the centre of the universe’ position, whereby your adherence to moral rules is contingent on what mood you wake up in or whether you drank alcohol the evening before is the sort of self-worship that has destroyed a lot of peoples capacity to think morally – at all. It not only results in the promotion of further animal exploitation, it contributes to our destruction as a species; we’re bringing generations of people into existence who’s scope of morality ventures no further than the walls of their houses.
