Working Towards Veganism?


Videos: Ethics towards animals: https://youtu.be/307gysA18_E?si=mwqNFYVwfJJPyW99&t=272 Weigh the arguments (potentially disturbing images): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rS0F4WeG0eo Marketing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcyPbgO21SQ Human and environmental health: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwoL6hWd4l0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xY0GKu-PM58 Some caveats, but light ones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdnEbJZoNg8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSBz7kVDMNI Questions: 1. Does a vegan diet attract you? Why (not)? If you already follow a vegan diet, what made you choose to do so? 2. What are the difficulties for vegans in our society? Do you know if they are greater or lesser in other societies? 3. Is synthetic meat acceptable in a vegan diet? 4. The Agriculture Industry is by far the greatest consumer of water in the modern world. More vegans/vegetarians would necessarily mean more crops. Although reducing the use of water for animal feed goes a long way, will new farming methods be able to balance food and water needs in the future? 5. Thought experiment: The pig that wants to be eaten - https://www.evphil.com/blog/thought-experiment-5-the-pig-that-wants-to-be-eaten What is your answer to this hypothetical situation? 6. If it were proven that plants also suffer when harvested or damaged (e.g. by picking fruit or leaves), how would an ethical vegan reconcile this with their own survival?
